CO-CREATION SESSIONS

Don’t just design for us...Design with us.

This is what older adults and seniors say -- Too often, products are built, designed, and brought to market without enough input from the end users themselves. The Co-Creation Session (aka Co-Design Session) is a special segment of the conference that will offer tech startups a glimpse into the value of consulting with, working with, and designing with older adults/seniors when creating new products for their use. It will provide a unique opportunity to hear valuable feedback from potential end users. All conference attendees will participate in a Co-Creation breakout session during the conference and get a close up look at what some of our bright tech startup founders are working on.
