Event description

Description

Over the past two decades, Joseph F. Coughlin has been busting myths about aging with groundbreaking multidisciplinary research into what older people actually want—not what conventional wisdom suggests they need.

In The Longevity Economy, Dr. Coughlin provides the framing and insight business leaders need to serve the growing older market: a vast, diverse group of consumers representing every possible level of health and wealth, worth about $8 trillion in the United States alone and climbing.

To celebrate the book's publication, the MIT AgeLab will hold an interactive symposium from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm bringing together key players in the rapidly growing longevity economy.

The event will feature expert-led discussions about female-driven entrepreneurship, transcendent design principles, and the future of education and work, each framed with pertinent readings by Dr. Coughlin from The Longevity Economy.

A book signing and cocktail reception will follow the symposium from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm.



For those who are attending, here is some information that may help in planning your trip:
