Inaugural eldercare exhibition opens to public on November 9
Lots of different products to see and insights to gain from the varied workshops.
Over this coming weekend on November 9 and 10 (Saturday and Sunday), the inaugural ELDEX Asia will be open to the public from 10am to 8 pm at Halls 405 and 406 at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre. Besides becoming more aware of the different types of products available to help you age better, there will be varied workshops covering topics including dementia, using technology to monitor diabetes, preparing for life’s eventuality, suitable exercises for active agers, support for caregivers, and much more. The full schedule of workshops may be found HERE (Ageless Online will be holding a panel discussion called ‘Defying Ageing’ on November 10 at 5.30pm to 6.30pm and will showcase four active agers).
There will be also activities for the public where when they complete designated trails within the exhibition halls, they can stand to win different items. Said ELDEX event director, Joseph Yeo: “We have invested in ensuring that all attendees can visit the exhibition and the workshops for free, as long as they pre-register. We have worked in creating fun elements at the show where there are prizes to be won, including Samsung tablets with two years’ newspaper subscription to Berita Harian and Lianhe Zaobao, a two-nights’ stay at the fairly recently opened Capital Kempinski, among others. We have carefully curated a collection of workshops that span a wide spectrum of interest areas that the public will find appealing and pique their curiosity.
“The reason why we have done so is because we want to inform and educate the public the importance of preparing for living longer lives in a better way. This social cause is particularly important to us as we all have family members that are ageing. The knowledge we gain through the workshops can help them to age better and retard frailty through active ageing.”
Attendees who register on-site will have to pay an administrative fee of S$10 (inclusive of GST), which will towards ELDEX Asia’s adopted charity, Cycling Without Age, where seniors experience free trishaw rides driven by volunteers.
** For the first 500 registered consumers that turn up each day, they can receive a goody bag valued at over S$50 comprising items including rice sponsored by Foodness Asia, pain relief gel, and vouchers from select exhibitors. To register, go to: https://eldex-asia-19-consumer.reg.buzz.
