Now in its fourth year, the #ActivitiesStrong Virtual Summit is the largest and most successful virtual event for activity and life enrichment professionals in senior living. The Summit returns this year as a way to continue to acknowledge, educate and empower activity and life enrichment professionals. Participants will be able to learn what the state of resident engagement is in 2023 and beyond, explore best practices and understand long-lasting trends that impact how we build person-centered experiences for older adults.
