Each day throughout the three-day event, attendees can attend the AARP University, the center of education where members and guests can benefit from informational and interactive programs, and will enhance their knowledge on the hottest AARP research, issues, and programs related to people 50+. The faculty is composed of AARP experts and leading authority speakers from profit, nonprofit and government sectors. The campus is located at the Anaheim Convention Center, the Anaheim Marriott, and the Hilton Anaheim. AARP University Workshops are a new addition to AARP University. The AARP University Workshops are small interactive discussions and specialized hands-on programs focused on special subjects, issues, needs, trends, or skills relevant to the professional or personal needs of people 50+.
Additionally, the exhibit hall will be open daily and will showcase health and fitness, personal finance, advocacy, travel and entertainment and community service. Back by popular demand for the third year, AARP will show feature length films, as well as some shorts, from independent and foreign film makers throughout the three-day event at the film festival better known as AARP Celebrates Movies for Grownups.
