On 5th and 6th April the first Asian conference specifically related to housing and services for Asia’s ageing population was held in Singapore. Michael Fooks of our practice was invited as a guest speaker in his capacity as an architect with specialist knowledge in independent senior living communities and aged care facilities.
The Forum was a business event for CEOs and senior level decision makers to discuss investment and partnership opportunities. Its focus was on key growth industries such as Property, Aged Care & Nursing, Healthcare, Wellness and Finance and Investment that were likely to benefit from capturing Asia’s 1.2 billion ageing baby boomers with high disposable income.
The panel of speakers represented pioneers and experts in the ageing market from China, India, Europe, USA, Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.
The Forum is scheduled to become an annual event to be held in the various capital cities of Asia.
