A Conversation on Generations

December 5, 2013
Washington, DC

 
From now until 2029, a baby boomer will reach the age of 65 every eight seconds. With this gamechanging number in mind, this event fostered a creative dialogue to identify opportunities for savvy companies to engage a growing new market of tech comfortable and capable potential customers. The second Conversation on Generations convened senior executives, architects, tech innovators, developers, and other thought leaders to discuss the ways in which America’s aging population is changing the world of design.
