Held every 4 years, this showcase event will take place from the 13th to the 17th August at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre.
It represents a unique opportunity to bring together scientists and practitioners, experts and enthusiasts from a range of professional interests and disciplines involved in the promotion of Active Ageing.
It will not only highlight the latest research evidence and best practice on physical activity and active ageing, but also highlight the needs of an often excluded but growing population group world-wide “the very oldest of the old”.
In addition to the large range of new and bestselling books on show, a number of our leading authors will be speaking at the event.
These include Waneen Spirduso, author of Physical Dimensions of Aging-2nd Edition, Wojtek Chodzko-Zajko, author of Enhancing Cognitive Functioning and Brain Plasticity, C. Jessie Jones author of Physical Activity Instruction of Older Adults and Debra Rose author of Fallproof.
