Hosting the Conversation

Now in its third year, the Louisville Innovation Summit has emerged as one of the preeminent conferences at the forefront of aging care innovation. Everyone knows that Louisville is world-famous for bourbon and horses. But many do not know that Louisville is also the world-leader in Lifelong Wellness & Aging Care and has the nation’s largest concentration of aging care companies, with over 23,000 professionals producing over $50 billion in revenue.

Louisville is ideally situated to host the conversation on the future of aging care, and the Louisville Innovation Summit is the defining national event that convenes innovators and executives to share insights, expertise, and connections, with a common goal of redefining the aging experience for all of us. Over the course of the two-day summit, participants will interact with networks of national leaders in aging health and lifestyle, and experience Louisville’s outstanding business climate.

Providers and payors. Life Sciences and Bio Tech. Healthcare startups and an emerging tech community. Mentors and investors. This is the Louisville scene, where ideas and disciplines collide and new partnerships are forged every day; all in a city that is consistently praised for its cultural offerings (one of Zagat’s “America’s next Hot Food Cities,” and Travel + Leisure’s “Greenest” and “Friendliest” and “Most Cultured Cities in America” in 2015.)
