Congress Theme

The LASA National Congress 2017 theme is ‘Ahead of the Game: Age Services – Strong, Bold, Brave’.

Every part of the age services industry has been responding to systemic change underpinned by the principles of ageing in-place, consumer choice and market based competition. In this changing environment providers of age services are seeking to deliver sustainable, viable and consumer led services, with many driving business model innovation and change.

In this context, it is essential that providers are ‘Ahead of the Game’ – accessing new ideas, business strategies and care models as they are developing. Congress is an event where industry leaders can share insights into company led initiatives, challenge the status quo and explore the possible.
