Greater Manchester (GM) is an international leader in ageing. As the UK’s first age-friendly city region, it is at the forefront of global efforts to adapt to demographic change and population ageing. GM’s new Local Industrial Strategy makes clear its ambition to capitalise on the economic opportunities of ageing and promote healthy and active ageing for all.

This event will be hosted by Accenture at their new Manchester offices and will discuss the nature of these opportunities and how GM’s innovation infrastructure and other key stakeholders can best respond to them across:

  • Retail, culture, hospitality, tourism and sport
  • Transport and mobility
  • Housing
  • Health and social care
