At our conference in Malta this year we launched the 1st IAHSA International Design for Ageing Symposium & Showcase It was a resounding success, featuring an international survey and exhibit of the state of the art trends in senior living and aged care.

Under the leadership of Jeff Anderzon, the IAHSA design showcase is going on the road – to Korea – to be part of the International Future Design Conference sponsored by Dr. Yeunsook Lee of Younsei University in Seoul.

The conference [23- 28 October 2007] is a global forum to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and facilitate the exchange of ideas, information, and innovations to pave the fertile ground for macro- and micro-environment especially for housing for the future.

Lessons learned in Seoul will help us build on our success in Malta as we prepare for IAHSA’s 2nd International Design for Ageing Showcase at our 8th International Conference in London in July 2009.
