Fall 2014 Ideas@50+ San Diego Event Banner - AARP


Discover. Engage. Enjoy.

Welcome to the first Ideas@50+ in San Diego. AARP is introducing a whole new way to learn, engage and interact with others who share the same interests and passions as you! It’s everything you’ve come to love about AARP events, with a twist on innovation. Attendees will get up close and personal with today’s most interesting thinkers and experts, experience all that AARP has to offer and discover their real possibilities through four event tracks:

AARP Ideas@50+ tracks:  Health & Wellness
 AARP Ideas@50+ tracks:  Money & Work
AARP Ideas@50+ tracks:  Technology & Innovatio
AARP Ideas@50+ tracks:   Travel & Lifestyle

Crossing all tracks, Life Reimagined is designed for adapting to new aging challenges and possibilities. Today’s 50-plus Americans are living longer, healthier lives and, at the same time, are navigating economic, health, social and technological realities unlike any generation before them. We’ll help equip attendees to lead the type of life they imagine and prompt them to consider the most important questions they face.
