What's new: Creating your blueprint for a wellness-based community.


ICAA Conference, Leadership Summit and Expo 2019

Learn. Connect. Improve. Enjoy.

Life well lived. It’s the goal you share with your aging customers. You know that wellness is the way to living well—and ICAA is the way to wellness.

If you attended last year’s ICAA Conference, Leadership Summit and Trade Show, you know what awaits you at our 2019 event. And, if you didn’t? There are more reasons than ever to attend.

ICAA 2019 is an industry gathering filled with information, networking and inspiration—a giant meet-and-greet, TED Talk, expo and educational energizer rolled into one. Three days of learning, laughing, exploring, connecting and sharing ideas. Making new contacts and discovering new options. Getting on top of trends before they get on top of you.

When it comes to “shaping the future of wellness,” ICAA 2019 is the place to be.

A recent report sums up why. The “Well Economy,” say researchers from J. Walter Thompson Intelligence, has permeated the developed world from the United States to Australia, China, Thailand and Japan. Consumers and organizations from traditional healthcare, the workplace, food, pharmaceuticals, hospitality and other business sectors are moving towards healthier, more active service models. So, what will it mean for you?

Organizations can opt for the status quo, or choose to adjust. Those who do the best job of adjusting—from CEOs of senior living communities, to administrators in seniors centers, to wellness programmers in YMCAs or city parks & rec—will reap the greatest rewards. ICAA 2019 is all about shaping the future for success in the Well Economy.

Catalysts for change
The three-day ICAA Conference brings you face to face with speakers from across the sectors and disciplines powered by the changing reality of aging. Discover how their practices are shaping wellness in their organizations and become a catalyst for change in yours. A smorgasbord of sessions covers topics such as leadership, programming trends and innovations, cognitive and emotional health, technology, research and more. Your biggest challenge will be trying to catch them all. Register for the 2019 ICAA Conference and Expo and gain an all-access pass to the ICAA Executive Leadership Summit, or vice versa.

Business matters
The two-and-a-half day ICAA Executive Leadership Summit offers you strategies and perspectives from industry experts, insiders and business leaders who understand the business of wellness. Presentations explore industry trends, marketing and other key components to help you shape your organization’s wellness future. How well is your organization navigating the shift to a Well Economy? Come and find out. The Summit is designed for CEOs, CFOs, executive directors, administrators, board members, presidents, vice presidents and other senior business leaders.

Industry space
The ICAA Expo is unique because it specializes in older-adult wellness. Connect with companies that provide products and services to fit your organization’s goals, needs and customers. Explore solutions in technology, equipment, services, transportation, and more. This two-day show-and-tell is included in your general admission pass. Discover what’s new, what’s trending and what’s on the horizon.

At ICAA 2019, you can learn, connect, improve, and enjoy some serious team-building and fun in an environment perfect for wellness: Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. It’s an event you don’t want to miss. Especially since it’s not only the future of wellness you’ll be shaping. It’s the future of your organization.
