Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI) is proud to play host to the longest running international conference on dementia. ADI works hard in collaboration with its member Alzheimer associations to welcome over 1,000 delegates from over 100 countries.
The conference produces fresh, innovative, and diverse content with a global network of individuals from a multitude of backgrounds. The event brings together researchers, scientists, clinicians, allied healthcare professionals, people living with dementia, family members, care professionals, and staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations.
Its multi-disciplinary approach provides a unique opportunity for delegates to listen to alternative viewpoints and mesh those with their own ways of thinking. ADI believes this crossover provides crucial learnings within the field, as together we are far more powerful than we are alone.
34th Virtual International Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International
Hope in the Age of Dementia: New sciences. New knowledge.
10-12 December 2020, Online
The 34th International Conference of ADI, hosted with Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA) in Singapore was delivered as a virtual conference. With the move to a virtual conference, we were delighted to be able to offer significantly reduced registration rates to participate in what was the first global, virtual, multidisciplinary dementia conference of its kind.
The programme this year took a new approach, building around the World Health Organization (WHO)’s Global action plan on dementia, with diverse international keynote speakers delivering plenary sessions for each of the seven action areas of the plan: increased dementia policy, awareness, risk reduction, diagnosis, treatment, care and support, support for carers, information systems and research. Delegates also heard the latest research on COVID-19 and dementia.
With our high standard of scientific and non-scientific content addressed through varied live and recorded sessions, keynote presentations, symposiums and poster presentations, there were learning and networking opportunities for all delegates. The conference was also offered in Spanish and simplified Chinese captioning.
