That’s A Wrap for LASA National Congress 2019!
The LASA National Congress 2019 was the largest yet with over 1260 attendees. This years theme Better Ageing Futures focused on developing a culture of respect for older Australian and shift of mindset from “aged care” to “ageing well”.
Delegates were drawn to the Congress due to the outstanding speaking program and extensive trade exhibition and they were not disappointed. Delegates were blown away by the calibre and variety of speaking sessions. High profile speakers such as Julie Bishop and Todd Sampson provided informative and entertaining sessions for a packed crowd but it was Billie Jordan ‘The Granny Whisperer’ from New Zealand who’s belief in older adults and heart felt personal story received a standing ovation.
Our panel sessions covered trending topics on Better Aging Futures, The Royal Commission and Women in Leadership. With several panellists in each session they provided a wide range of expertise and well rounded advise and views on current issues.
During the session breaks delegates flocked to the trade exhibition that showcased the latest innovations, technology and products. While in the trade exhibition delegates also took the opportunity to take part in the interactive Innovation Hub sessions, talk to Pepper the Robot and view the informative Digital Posters. During the lunch breaks the therapy dogs from The Delta Society were happy to offer a cuddle and a moment relax during the busy day.
LASA would like to thank all Sponsors, Exhibitors, Speakers and delegates for being part of the LASA National Congress 2019. Thank you for joining us on this journey to a better ageing future for all Australians!
