Annual AGS Tech Innovations Pavilion 2017 – Call for Applications
The American Geriatrics Society (AGS) is the premier membership organization of thousands of physicians and other healthcare professionals devoted to the care of older adults. With the rapidly growing population of aging baby boomers and limited geriatric professionals, there is a substantial need for innovative solutions that bridge the service gap to improve the quality of life and healthcare of older adults.
Share Your Innovations and Products
By 2030, one in five adults will be over the age of 65. And on average, 50% of older adults have three or more chronic diseases. Today and tomorrow, there is demand for geriatric care at an accelerated pace.
If you create technology products or services that ease the lives of older adults, their caregivers, and/or clinicians -- we want to hear from you! We invite you to apply to the AGS Annual Scientific Meeting's Technology Innovations Pavilion in San Antonio TX on May 17-20, 2017. Pavilion exhibit days: May 18 & 19.
About The Pavilion
AGS will accept up to 20 technology companies to share their solutions with our expert geriatrics health professionals throughout the two exhibit days of the Annual Meeting to learn how to address the unique needs and challenges of geriatrics patients, caregivers and clinicians.
Premier Exposure to Field of Geriatrics: Opportunity to exhibit your product or service to over 2,500 experts in geriatrics (care of older adults) to receive immediate feedback, validate concepts, meet customers and potential advisers.
Event Access: Prime, visible exhibit location with high foot traffic. At certain parts of the day, exhibit hall hours run unopposed with other sessions.
Marketing: Opportunity to appear in AGS Annual Meeting Exhibitor Listing, emails to the entire AGS Membership list, and on Social Media.
