WASHINGTON, Dec. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- AARP announced today an official new track of programming at CES 2023 around AgeTech, the growing category of technology solutions designed to meet the needs of the world's aging population.
Together with the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, AARP will launch the AgeTech Summit, a dedicated program of key speakers and panel discussions all focused on innovation in the AgeTech space. The summit will take place throughout CES 2023 Thursday, January 5-Sunday, January 8 at the Venetian Expo Center at Booth #52332.

Innovations in AgeTech are providing tools and technology to bring meaningful change and help solve the challenges of aging.
"As startups and large organizations see financial benefits to develop products in the AgeTech category, consumers benefit from the continuing innovation which ultimately improves their everyday lives," said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins. "AARP is leveraging its expertise to accelerate AgeTech, by facilitating partnerships and collaboration across industries and sectors to move the category forward."

At the AgeTech Summit, industry leaders who view aging as the growth opportunity for the future will meet and learn more about the AgeTech Collaborative™ from AARP.
