The Festival brought together leading world experts on topics relating to aging, disability, informal caregiving, new technologies and science. Five unique conferences: Caregivers: Essential Partners in Care; The 30th Canadian Medical and Biological Engineering Conference: Improving Medical Device Usability; Advances in Neurorehabilitation; Growing Older with a Disability and the 2nd International Conference on Technology and Aging, provided the framework for a global dialogue concerned with helping the world’s aging populations live longer and better.

Each of the Festival conferences was co-chaired by leaders in the field and engaged local, provincial, national and international organizations. Through an infrastructure of volunteer committees, coordinated by the Steering Committee, the Festival included an exhibit hall, international speakers, entertainment by artists and performers with disabilities, and many inspirational seminars, workshops and converging international meetings.
