Annual Conference

Roaring 20s Returns….Recruiting Retirees in a New Decade      

Chattanooga, Tennessee – November 6th – 8th, 2019

What’s All the Flapabout? The Roaring Twenties is hitting Chattanooga this fall!

The AARC Annual Conference is pouring new energy and ideas into the retiree community industry.

You already know that the ‘Roaring’ 1920’s were an iconic period—booming economic prosperity, jazz music, flappers, and cultural shifts that changed the country. Back then, like today, ‘cutting-edge’ technology was changing the landscape. In the 20’s, it was things like the washing machine and…the radio (creating a new thing called nation-wide advertising!)

As we find ourselves headed into the NEW Roaring Twenties, it’s geo-location tech, social networks, and unlimited market research available to every potential customer that are changing the way we do business. Next on the horizon, we’re seeing  an increasingly savvy and demanding audience of soon-to-be and current retirees.

Are you excited for what lies ahead OR are you wishing you could enact Prohibition on some of these speed-of-light market changes?

At AARC, we’re ready to help you SEIZE this new, exciting era.

We invite you to join us to learn from the industry’s top influencers this fall…

We chose the Roaring Twenties theme because it’s a great representation of the unique time in the retirement community industry. Come kick up your heels with us and learn about what the 2020’s may bring.

In this year’s conference, you’ll learn about the latest marketing techniques, non-traditional ways to engage the ‘new’ consumer and more. Take part in engaging sessions, network with fellow industry players and discuss how to navigate what’s now and next.

It’s all happening in the amazing city of Chattanooga, Tennessee!

ChattanoogaWe didn’t choose Chattanooga just because it’s fun to say. We were inspired by how Chattanooga has greeted the new era head on and how it’s reaping major rewards in tourism, business development and growth. It’s a city that has experienced a rebirth of epic proportion. The historic city is now a burgeoning new center for tech and a newfound hot spot for all things hip and trendy in the new South. Chattanooga is a city whose spirit and smart growth serve as inspiration for the retiree community industry.
