Sponsored — The ACCPA Care & Ageing Well Expo is set to be a monumental event in Melbourne, featuring over 80 exhibitors and providing a range of products and services for the ageing population. 

 

Taking place on February 10 and 11 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, this expo is poised to deliver valuable insights into the process of ageing well .

Exhibitors, spanning residential care, home care, retirement living, equipment, legal and financial services, medical, technology and support groups, will have experts available to address visitor inquiries. Event organiser Richard Campbell anticipates exceeding the 2,000 visitors mark from the 2023 expo.

 

Mercy Health is the principal sponsor for the event. As a national provider of retirement living, home care and residential aged care services, their commitment to ensuring all Australians age with vitality and joy aligns seamlessly with the expo objectives.

 

Mercy Health Chief Executive of Healthy Ageing Clare Douglas emphasised the significance of their involvement, stating, “This sponsorship allows us to partner with an organisation whose purpose aligns with Mercy Health, through a shared goal to ensure that older Australians can live their best lives.”

 

Following the successful format of the previous year, the 2024 expo will feature expert speakers across two stages and more than 80 exhibitors showcasing the latest in health, legal, financial services, technology, and aged care solutions.

 

At the heart of the expo is the Lounge Retreat, providing a space for relaxation and information services. The expo, free to attend, recommends pre-registering online for a streamlined entry.

 

Tom Symondson, CEO of Aged and Community Care Providers, emphasises the ongoing innovations and high-tech solutions designed to enhance the lives of older Australians. The expo aims to bring together these advancements under one roof, allowing attendees to familiarise themselves with available services and supports.

 

With a renewed focus on the well-being of older Australians, prompted by the Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety, the expo encourages suppliers and providers to develop and promote innovative products and services.

 

The Care and Ageing Well Expo, initially launched in Perth five years ago, makes its way to Melbourne after the pandemic. Open from 9:30am to 4pm on February 10 and 11, it presents a prime opportunity for attendees to gather information, stay informed and engage with the evolving landscape of ageing well.
