After careful consideration of the evolving public health concerns regarding COVID-19 and the new Omicron variant, we have decided to cancel our in-person presence at CES 2022.
AARP’s mission is to empower people to choose how they live as they age — and AARP Innovation Labs is marching toward this mission through technology. We accelerate and amplify early-stage startups that are developing solutions for the biggest challenges people face as they age, which has become more important than ever since the start of the pandemic. At CES 2022, we’ll bring their stories, products and missions to life.
Step into our virtual village to experience the real-world challenges and solutions our startups are focusing on across five key aspects of aging communities:

While technology focused on the 50+ has always existed, COVID has turned what was once a “nice to have” into an everyday necessity. As a result, there’s an immediate need to accelerate the creation and scaling of AgeTech products, services, and experiences. Join us for this special session that will introduce the “why” behind the launch of the AgeTech Collaborative™ as well as three of our inaugural participants. You will be able to hear from the Center for Aging + Brain Health Innovation (CABHI), Thrive Center, and Maccabee Ventures about how each of these companies are playing in the AgeTech space and why it is necessary to focus on solutions that help people choose how they live as they age.
Featuring AgeTech Collaborative™ from AARP
