What Happened vs. What Happens Next

Hindsight is 20/20. But a clear vision of the past is only valuable if you apply it to the future. That’s what this year’s AARC conference will focus on.

We’ve learned that retirees want to live in a place that makes them feel safe and connected. We’ve learned that ‘face to face’ is great but ‘remote/digital access’ means we can tour prospects anytime, anywhere. But to attract today’s relocating retiree, we need to go beyond just using what we’ve learned – we need to innovate, and to think differently. AARC presenters will share their expertise, and work with you on steps for the future.

You’ll learn how to engage retirees with the latest tech and how to keep your in-person skills sharp. You’ll hear the latest on what retirees are concerned about now and what they’re thinking about for the future. You’ll learn about marketing techniques that are tailored to today’s ‘post-2020’ retiree market, and discover engaging ways to speak to a wiser generation of consumer. And you’ll interact with – and learn from – the industry’s most effective leaders.

We invite you to grow your strengths in the conference’s real-world-applicable sessions, and to network with industry peers and leaders who are ready to share their expertise.

It’s all coming into focus in Myrtle Beach.

When we selected Myrtle Beach as this year’s location, great beaches and fun opportunities were appealing. But the Grand Strand has grown, retreated, reconfigured and flourished as a retiree destination. It’s the perfect destination for the 2022 AARC Conference – join us!
