Award Winning 2023 Conference
Facing the Future: Aged Care 2030 and Beyond was set up as the first event of its kind to bring together the whole aged care ecosystem to talk about positive ageing.
This is what you said…
Very ‘out of the box’ approach to looking at how we address the challenges facing aged care.
Extremely engaging, informative and collaborative.
Exhibitors got the opportunity to be part of the presentations – how inclusive is that!!!!!! Baffles me why no other conference I have ever attended took on this format.
Best conference I have attended in all my years working as a health professional.
Great conference! Seriously looking forward to the next one!
One of the best conferences that I have been to. Equal parts education and inspiration. I want more of this stuff.
