IFA’s 9th Global Conference on Ageing and Expo Ageing & Design

September 4 to 7, 2008 – Montreal

From September 4 to 7, 2008, the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) in partnership with Ageing Design Montréal (ADM) will be holding the IFA’s 9th Global Conference on Ageing and Expo Ageing & Design at the Palais des Congrès in Montréal, Canada. This landmark conference and an exposition will be made up of the ninth installment of IFA’s Global Conference on Ageing series, ‘Defining Health, Participation and Security through an Enabling Environment’, with the international debut of Expo Ageing and Design, linking the relevance and impact that design has in influencing the quality of life of the mature market world wide.

The conference will feature an interactive programme with plenary panel sessions, specialist highlight sessions, workshops, high-level international meetings, along with an array of networking opportunities. The Exposition component will host exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations in products, technologies, ageing and design that can support seniors as they age. The event is focused on bringing together mature market experts in the fields of ageing and design in an environment that provides cross-discipline dialogue and fosters partnerships for the future.

Together with ADM, the IFA is committed to changing attitudes and pioneering ways of improving the quality of life of older people in all parts of the world; and creating environments that enable and empower them to participate in their communities. The events of 2008 will play a major role in advancing this goal.
