Welcome to the Independent Ageing Convention website.
My name is Hidenori Arai, President of this exciting event and also President of the National Center for Geriatrics and Gerontology in Japan.
The population ageing is a global phenomenon, and in most of the developed countries the number of ageing people is increasing thus having a huge impact on the society. Therefore, extending healthy life expectancy combined with high quality of life of ageing people is an urgent issue in many countries. Ensuring healthy and active longevity of the population requires the active involvement not only of healthcare industries, but also of businesses from a wide spectrum of other areas such as information and communication technologies , internet of things, robotics, mobility, housing, insurance, banking, etc.. Not to miss, the collaboration with local and central government has a vital and critical role in the process.
With these needs in mind, the Independent Ageing Convention has the aim to support the growing economy and related business sectors; to develop the industry and forge new collaborations; to showcase innovative solutions, products, services, technologies that can be adopted by the different stakeholders and business types in this growing economy; to create networking opportunities for attendees and exhibitors; and to create an informative program reflecting on business, consumer and healthcare needs.
I do hope many stakeholders related to healthy longevity will join us for this exciting opportunity. We look forward to welcoming you to The Independent Ageing Convention on 13-15 October 2023 in Aichi Sky Expo, Japan.
