Over 200 international top business, government and not-for-profit leaders from various major baby boomer and ageing markets will attend the forum.

• Future of ageing-in-place in Asia workshop
• Ageing Asia Industry Tour that will take international delegates on a tour of Singapore’s

What others say about Asia’s ageing market opportunity:
“I think Japanese experiences on the ageing population are valuable when considering business opportunities in other countries. I would like to share our experiences in Japan, to learn more about the situation in other Asian countries, and to create new opportunities to collaborate with us [Japan],” said AAIF2011 keynote speaker Professor Hiroyuki Murata President, Murata Associates, Inc., Japan,

“In India, it will become a lesser taboo to have your aged relatives live away from the family. The seniors will opt for it themselves as better options become available. I take a holistic approach in investment in seniors care. It is about providing an enabled lifestyle for senior citizens with an enhanced emphasis on healthcare and wellness, hospitality, engagement, financial services and security. If you break it down into parts, you can see where the opportunities are for different businesses,” said AAIF2011 speaker, Mr Harpal Singh, Chairman Emeritus, Fortis Healthcare Ltd, India.

“Asia’s ageing babyboomers will age differently from previous generations. Healthcare groups in Asia have already started to access this market with entry into home care, step-down care, seniors housing and wellness. In India, Fortis Healthcare is a partner of Impact Seniors Living Estate (ISLE). In Malaysia, KPJ Healthcare recently purchased a 51% stake in a retirement village in Australia,” said Ms Janice Chia, Managing Director, Xperiential Events Pte Ltd, Singapore .
