What is the business of aging and how are we preparing for the future senior? This summit will gather designers, real estate developers, facility managers, public officials and policy experts to discuss a range of thought-provoking ideas. The introductory remarks will frame the summit’s curated list of panelists. The first panel will help define what is successful aging and the range of seniors-oriented populations that we are designing for—whether we are rethinking the private dwelling, an assisted-living environment, or public and commercial buildings. The second panel will dig deep to report on how our industry is preparing to design for the seniors of tomorrow?
