World-first Adelaide ageing conference puts focus on a “longer mid-life” and ageing ‘start-ups’

Published on

The inaugural Ageing Well Revolution conference brought together over 250 “early adopter” delegates to discuss the business and enterprise around ageing well and was spearheaded by the Economic Development Board of South Australia under Chairman Raymond Spencer and Board Member Mike Rungie.

30 Australian and international speakers covered topics including new lifelong learning, brain training, re-purposing, innovation, technology and understanding emerging mid-life and mid-life consumption patterns, while a ‘marketplace’ featured around 20 start-ups showcasing new products.

Mr Rungie says there was significant interest from Asia. “They are interested in conventional aged care approaches as well as what else we have to offer in terms of new solutions,” he tells us.

Mr Rungie says they will now look at running sessions for the start-ups nationally with more details to be released soon.
