Event description

Description

On behalf of the Economic Development Board of South Australia (‘EDB’), we wish to invite you to attend The Future of Ageing Well – an Open State event focussing solely on the future of ageing well and the exciting products and services that are being created to benefit an ever-growing older population.

Led by a panel including futurist Richard Watson, members of the Economic Development Board of SA and other personalities, it will explore the products, services and opportunities that could exist as this transition to an older and more engaged population demographic shapes our society.

We are looking for engaged South Australians who are then willing to trial and test ONE of the innovations below and most importantly provide feedback and advice to direct to the entrepreneur to help to shape / design the products and services of tomorrow.

Come along and meet the entrepreneurs who are developing products and services in this space, and share with them your feedback based on your perspectives after trialling ONE of the products or services below.


The four products and services being showcased are:
