AURIENS

A brand new healthtech and hospitality startup, Auriens specializes in later life lux. Beginning with what will arguably be the world’s coolest old folks’ home, located in the heart of Chelsea, Auriens has a vision to transform the traditional view of old age, injecting vintage vitality into a market sector that is more typically used to pipes and slippers.

The Auriens resident is affluent, aspirational and ambitious, keen to live life to the full and not yet ready to sacrifice city living for the shires.

Auriens is changing the face of ageing.

AIM

One aim: to deliver immersive, innovative and imaginative solutions that challenges the conventions around old age and hacks new ideas to improve the quality (and quantity!) of all aspects of later life for this generation and the next. Considering everything from hospitality and healthcare to travel, fashion and retail, this event is expected to excel in creating age-defying ideas.

Imagine technology tools that will enrich a residential living environment, considering everything from ergonomic architecture to embedded technology, lifestyle and concierge services to healthcare, hospitality and wellbeing.

Think about the details of the built environment, food and drink, fitness, mental and physical stimulation and R&R. Consider the on-boarding process and how to ensure a seamless and stressless transition for residents.

Consider avant garde solutions around technology, enabling residents to communicate with friends and family as well as staying connected to the world of business. Explore the social side of life, imagining innovation across events, entertainment and relationships.
