The 36th Global Conference of Alzheimer’s Disease International welcomed over 1000 delegates in Kraków, Poland from 24-26 April 2024, in collaboration with ADI member Polskie Stowarzyszenie Pomocy Osobom z Chorobą Alzheimera (Polish Alzheimer’s Association).

Coming together under the conference theme of ‘Dementia: Insights. Innovations. Inspirations.’, the conference brought together experts, policymakers, advocates, those with live experience of dementia, and also royal ambassadors from across the world to share information on achievements, innovations and best practices in dementia research, care and policy, while continuing to address and challenge the perceptions around dementia.

The conference offered a hybrid format, combining in-person and virtual elements for an educational and interactive experience for delegates. The conference programme was structured around the 7 action areas of the World Health Organization (WHO)’s Global Action Plan on dementia, which centre around policy, awareness, prevention and diagnosis, research, care and treatment of dementia.

Zbigniew Tomczak, President of the Polish Alzheimer’s Association, said: “We are delighted to co-host this prestigious conference for the first time in Poland. We strongly believe that it is an enormous opportunity to share knowledge and experience between people with dementia, family carers, Staff and volunteers of Alzheimer associations, policy makers, medical and care professionals. I am looking forward to welcome the participants of the conference in Krakow in 2024!
