SLIF 2017 was a successful gathering of the brightest movers-and-shakers in senior care. Nolan Bushnell, the founder of Atari and Chuck E. Cheese’s, agrees.

“I love this conference because it is full of people who are truly interested in change and looking to increase the capabilities of their offering. It’s really about happiness; if we can make our residents happier, we’ve won,” Bushnell said after his keynote talk on the future of aging.

Over 175 senior execs from the nation’s top senior living providers and leading suppliers gathered in Boca Raton for the three-day retreat. TED-inspired talks and peer discussions centered on the innovations in care, design, technology and operations.

“influence group does the best events that are of the highest quality and most interesting. It’s great to be with an audience of this caliber,” said Dr. Bill Thomas, founder of the Eden Alternative and Green House Project.

The admiration was mutual, with attendees praising the peer-driven content along with the opportunity to have pre-scheduled meetings with the industry’s most innovative service providers. Kian Saneii, CEO of Independa, said, “Simply outstanding. The best mixture of quality time/program and quality people–which includes not just the providers, but the staff and partners.
