Back in mid-January we reported on the development of a ‘consortium’ to foster cooperation between companies developing technologies that support older people–generally smaller companies ‘hanging together’ to reach this market. The group is now a reality–now called the Aging Technology Alliance or Agetek.org–and meeting at the end of ASA-NCOA and the beginning of the What’s Next Boomer Business Summit in Chicago this week.
Date: Thursday, 18 March 2010
Time: 4:30-6:00pm CT
Location: Hong Kong Room, Hyatt Regency Chicago (ASA/NCOA/What’s Next Conferences are there) 151 E. Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois
The purpose of this group is to ‘promote awareness, benefits and value of products and services for our aging society while directly benefiting our members by evolving into the world’s leading aging-focused technology consortium. ‘ If you are interested in attending, email firstname.lastname@example.org as space in the room is limited (and the room may change by Thursday afternoon–information available at registration.) More information.
Important Update 17 March: The meeting will be webcast (audio only) so if you cannot attend, this is a convenient way to audit the meeting: http://my.dimdim.com/grandcare
[Editor’s note: I’ll be reporting from this meeting as well as the entire Boomer Business Summit 18-19 March–and moderating ‘Ask the Analyst #4’ Friday at 8:20am. Watch for reports next week in our Events/Conference Reports section. Donna.]
