Healthy Ageing Summit returns in 2021

Healthy Ageing Summit returns in 2021
February 5, 2021

Following the success of its inaugural event last year, the Healthy Ageing Summit will again be staged in 2021.

To once again be held online, the Summit, being held on 28th and 29th May 2021, will feature an interactive platform allowing more opportunities to network with other delegates, and connect live with exhibitors and presenters.

With the theme ‘Transition & Empowerment 2 Successful Ageing’, the Summit aims to help professionals grow their business by learning more about themselves from a positive mindset perspective and learning to become better authorities and coaches to empower their clients for long term success.

Event founder Ken Baldwin explains “the positive feedback we received on last year’s workshops as well as the number of unique experts has given us great insights into what the delegates want, so we will continue to showcase sessions on chronic disease, exercise programming, nutrition, business marketing and social media.

“Delegates will be able to interact with each other, ask Presenters questions and jump into session rooms (and) with our round table discussions we bring together some thought leaders with great topics.

“They will also have the opportunity to book in sessions with presenters.”

Baldwin, the founder of the Healthy Ageing Institute, says the Summit already has a 95% return registration rate for delegates who have locked in this year’s Summit as their priority for learning in this rapidly growing niche market - the active ageing demographic.

He adds “our presenting team is amazing with many from last year returning with brand new exclusive material and some great new presenters who will share their expertise.

“The new hosting platform will also provide some great opportunities for sponsors to be part of the event, interacting with delegates, showcasing and building their online Expo space with their own branding.”
