Gerontology/Handicap area

Gerontology/Handicap area, trade show dedicated to advanced age and disability professionals

Gerontology/Handicap area, for improved care of the elderly and people with disabilities

As a partner exhibition of Hospital area, Gerontology/Handicap area offers a program dedicated to professionals and to the medico-social actors specializing in the care of elderly and disabled persons. Gerontology/Handicap area has become the leader of all trade shows and events dedicated to the medico-social sector.

A unique get together for all actors in the medico-social field

It is a unique meeting place between healthcare professionals dedicated to the elderly and persons with disabilities. As much a trade show as it is a place for conferences and discussions, Gerontology/Handicap area is an opportunity for discovery, exchange and debate.

A vector and a partner of change

Faced with growing economic pressure, a rising demand and limited means, the actors in the sector have made Gerontology/Handicap area an opportunity for foresight and reflection, buoyed by the dynamic momentum of Hospital area and Health IT area. Attendees can build an understanding of the issues and have a glimpse of upcoming solutions for their institutions or their careers.

A fast-evolving industry

Decision-makers had it right: Gerontology/Handicap area is the theatre of many world premières, as much for economic actors (materials, equipment, technologies, and services) as for political and administrative actors. Gerontology/Handicap area, just like Hospital area for hospital professionals, has emerged as a powerful meeting point in the relationship between political officials in charge of the medico-social sector on the one hand, and industry professionals on the other hand. Numerous reforms and large undertakings were unveiled at those events.

A meeting without walls

Just like the health and medico-social sectors, it is fully entwined with Hospital area, and benefits fully from its economic and political dimensions. Exhibitors and visitors also benefit fully from synergies between Health IT area and the nursing trade show (Salon Infirmier) which takes place within the Paris Healthcare Week event.
