Have you submitted a proposal to present at the 2015 ASA Aging in America Conference? The conference will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, March 23-27 and the American Society on Aging is accepting presentation proposals through June 30. As an ASA volunteer leader I am dedicated to the mission of ASA to provide education and training to professionals in the field of aging and I can’t speak highly enough about the educational and networking experience you will have at Aging in America. It is an incredible opportunity for you to present the work you have been doing with others who share our passion for improving the quality of life older adults from around the country!

1)      Two groundbreaking master classes: An Alzheimer’s master class and a specialty geriatric-techniques master class each sponsored by well-known global NGO’s with unparalleled expertise in their discipline.  Each of these master classes represent the first time both NGO’s have been to China and will attract over 400 Chinese C-Level hospital execs, developers and Heads of Associations (sponsorship opportunities are available for these two events).

2)      Three study tours to the USA, Australia and the UK: Care Expo will host major excursions to aged-care conferences in these countries, tours of facilities and visits to geriatric hospitals. We have priced this tour right and offered a comprehensive, full service approach for our travelers including visa application. Our China Association members and our developer contacts are signing up now for this innovative approach to study tours! Let us know if you want to be on our itinerary and meet these delegations and potential business partners as we tour your country.

3)      A more dynamic expo floor: We are introducing three new attractions that will make the exhibition portion of Care Expo more lively and engaging.  These attractions are:

i.     Care Expo TV – Interview of speakers, discussions with industry leaders and exhibitor commercials with live feed to Care Expo website and exposition floor via large LED TV’s are just some of the highlights of this new feature.

ii.     Care Expo Theatre – 20 minute promotional presentations with surveys from a captive audience of buyers, nurses and key Association members.

iii.     Public Art Wall – This highly engaging, pubic art installation has been featured at many western aged-care conferences and exhibitions. Care Expo will  inaugurate its art wall with the absorbing question to be completed by all attendees: “When I need aged-care, I want…?” (sponsorship is available)
