Ageing Asia Innovation Forum (AAIF) is an iconic international B2B platform on the sustainability of ageing, impacting the Greater Asia by connecting business, government and community leaders to discover and collaborate on social and economic opportunities.

AAIF drives the message of Healthy, Independent and Dignified Ageing. The conference is held annually in Singapore, though this year most of the sessions will be virtual during November 2-25, 2020.

Team Finland together with Business Finland Smart Life Finland program is now inviting Finnish healthcare companies to join Team Finland to showcase Finland’s offering in the prevention of lifestyle related illnesses at the festival. We welcome companies that may already have business or research co-operation in Singapore or South East Asia, or the area is your focus in the future.

Main events for the delegation

While the delegation members will have access to over 170 sessions and countless networking opportunities during the 23 days of AAIF, our main Finnish events at the hybrid festival are:

3 November 2020 - Country Showcase: Finland

10 Finnish companies will have the possibility to present their solutions at a 2 hour virtual country showcase event focusing on the Finnish offering. These 10 companies will be selected in cooperation with Ageing Asia among the Finnish delegates based on the solutions offered. Finland being an eldercare benchmark for Singapore, we are looking to present solutions especially on rehabilitation, home care services, technology and activation in elderly care to mention a few. The companies presenting at the showcase will also have one-to-one business introductions through the Forum's Business Matching App during the festival.

The Country Showcase is followed by KIPPIS Virtual Cocktail Hour, including facilitated think tank and discussion.

23 November 2020 - Policy Day: Finland's Country Ageing Policy Presentation

Keynote speech by Ambassador for Health and Well-being Päivi Sillanaukee.

Why Singapore?

Changing Ageing care and especially Active Ageing are all on the agenda of the Singaporean government. Enabled by digitalization, value-based healthcare in Singapore now extends beyond primary and secondary healthcare settings to the comfort of a patient and elderly person’s home. Telehealth technologies assist healthcare providers in the remote monitoring disease or condition at person’s home.

If you are seeking business contacts or innovation partners, investors or buyers related to senior care, healthcare properties or digitalization of care services, this visit is for you. Your company can already have business or research co-operation in Singapore or the country can be in your focus in the future.
