Sept. 21, 2010 - PRLog -- Colin Milner, one of the world’s leading experts and visionaries on the health and well being will discuss the “tidal wave” of aging and implications for businesses and organizations at the National Active Retirement Community (NARA) 11th Annual Business Conference in Columbia, SC October 20-22 (www.retirementlivingnews.com)
Milner’s presentation will center on futurist trends that will affect governments, institutions, businesses, communities and families as 76 million baby boomers move well into their 50s and 60s.
Entitled the “Power Tools” NARA conference, this three-day event will bring together top national and international professionals involved in building for, marketing to and serving people aged 55+ at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
Milner, based in Vancouver, British Columbia, is an author, entrepreneur, public speaker and 55+ industry leader. He is the founder and chief executive officer of the International Council on Active Aging® (ICAA), and has been referred by the World Economic Forum as one of “the most innovative and influential minds” in the world on aging-related topics.
He has given speeches to thousands of business and governmental leaders, industry professionals, and older adults throughout the world. Milner has often been quoted by national media outlets and has advised the Canadian and U.S. governments on health policies for older adults.
Professionals, academicians, real estate developers, marketers, salespeople, city/town representatives and other business professionals seeking to capitalize on the unprecedented aging of America will attend. NARA topics range from internet marketing, building and marketing to strategies to attract retirees to towns, regions and states. Speakers will also offer advice on how to successfully design, build and market 55+ housing, as well as market 55+ targeted products and services.
“As America ages, we are faced with enormous challenges and opportunities to serve this burgeoning market segment,” said NARA Director Dan Owens. “Every six seconds, an American turns 50 and professionals need to get attuned to this marketplace to be successful in our changing economy.”
“With 70 percent of all assets held by people over 50, older folks play a large role in the economy,” said Owens.
The Capital City/Lake Murray Country Regional Tourism Board is the host organization and a Diamond Level sponsor. Other sponsors include the Go Texan state retiree attraction program and the Erickson School of Aging at the University of Maryland. All NARA sessions will be held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
