The annual Ageing Asia Innovation Forum (AAIF) is an international platform held annually in Singapore that connects CEO level business, government and community leaders to invest and collaborate on business opportunities in Real Estate, Healthcare, Wellness, Finance, Technology and Senior Care. AAIF aims to showcase the world’s most innovative models of care that will improve quality of living and happiness of older adults in Asia Pacific, focusing on Healthy Ageing, Independent Ageing and Dignified Ageing.

The latest 7th AAIF in Singapore gathered over 580 C-level delegates across 17 countries to exchange insights and identify the opportunities driven by Asia Pacific’s US$3.3 trillion booming silver economy.

The 2017 theme of ‘Future of Integrated Care: Housing, Health & Communities’ was chosen to reflect the changing needs of ageing baby boomers who desire to age- in-place, with relevant housing, health and communities services that can evolve to suit their changing requirements as they age.

In 2017 Finnish senior care expertise and innovations are showcased in the event organized at Marina Bay Sands Conference Centre.
