KUALA LUMPUR, 13 May 2022 — Want to know what is in the market that is new to increase your awareness and knowledge about ageing or a senior’s lifestyle and living? This exhibition is for you if you are a senior citizen or if you have an elderly parent, friends or family members. Plus, there are many products to source too, for every home design and interior needs across the four days!
From 13 - 16 May, HOMEDEC (Home Design & Interior Exhibition) and its concurrent exhibition - AGExpo (ASEAN Senior Care & Wellness Expo) is happening at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
HOMEDEC is always about bringing new themes and concepts to current home owners and for those who have just received keys to their respective homes, this is where they will also make the best #HOMEDECisions; for ideas or inspirations, knowledge and best deals! This edition also brings about the concept of multi-generational living needs through HOMEDEC and AGExpo.
According to a recent survey by the Valuation and Property Services Department (JPPH), the local property market recorded about RM87 billion and this value will create an estimated RM43.5 billion worth of renovation value.
C.I.S President and Organiser for both HOMEDEC and AGExpo Dato’ Vincent Lim says:
“It is now a great time to introduce this expo as we continue to see the trend for multi-generational homes that caters to the needs of the sandwich generation which are people who are raising children while at the same time, caring for their elderly members at home”.
“AGExpo aims to showcase and share examples, ideas and inspirations of how to live healthily even as we age. The exhibition that is held alongside HOMEDEC is an ideal platform for us to showcase the successful management and integration of life for the elderly,” Lim continues.
Baby boomers, which refer to those born between 1946 and 1964, have become senior citizens as the number of people over 65 years in Malaysia are projected to triple from 2 million today to over 6 million by 2040. Members of the community aged 80 and above are projected to increase from 0.3 million to nearly 1.4 million by 2040.
In less than 20 years there will be three senior citizens for every 20 people of the Malaysian population.
AGEXPO 2022 is organised as a semi-trade exhibition with the aim of increasing awareness and knowledge on elder care living and wellbeing to promote a high quality of life at every age. It will showcase best practices in professional services in caring for the elderly gleaned from recognised industry experts in Malaysia and abroad.
Carefully curated health and wellness equipment are also displayed as examples of practical applications and management to expose homeowners on various ways in caring for elderly members of their family.
“Together with the National Council of Senior Citizens Organisations Malaysia (NACSCOM), we see the need for such an exhibition. We love the idea of AGExpo, as it shines a light on the positive aspects of aging. Today, there are so many ways for aging members of our society to care for their health so that they live strong, useful lives and also for their carers to have the knowledge, skills, and tools to manage aging issues. AGExpo helps to inspire critical discussions on the needs of the elderly”, Lim added.
NACSCOM Deputy President, Co-Organiser for AGExpo Datuk Dr. Soon Ting Kueh says: “Ageing gracefully as they say is full of positivity. Today, people live longer, healthier, and more vibrant and meaningful lives than ever before with the increasing quality of living. In the past, aging equates with negative connotations. But now, we have a massive market segment of silver-haired tourists and consumers who are determined to live well and with purpose.”
“There are so many ways for aging members of our society to care for their health to live healthy, useful lives and for their carers to have the knowledge, skills, and tools to manage aging issues and AGEXPO aims to help inspire critical discussions on the needs of these elderly,” Soon said.
Also at the opening was the Malaysian Convention & Exhibition Bureau (MyCEB) Chief Operating Officer, En. Noor Ahmad Hamid: “I believe we will continue to witness many activities happening here at AGExpo and I look forward to see AGExpo to position Malaysia as the potential Business Event Gateway for the Silver Hair Economy in ASEAN”.
AGExpo includes a series of discussion in the ‘Expert Says’ sessions along with Senior's Performance will also be held concurrently at its activity centre.
