From May 14th through 16th, AARP has organized a massive event that showcases how life these days begins at 50. For three sizzling days in Miami, attendees will get find plenty of opportunities to follow their interests, and have an amazing time while they’re doing that. AARP Life@50+ National Event should be a lot of fun, as well as being highly informative.


The various sessions and workshops on offer have been separated into five tracks – Health & Wellness, Money & Work, Technology & Innovation, Travel & Lifestyle, and Arts & Culture. The idea being that through following a certain track you get to interact with others that share your interests, making for a more engaging experience all round.


If there are any speakers attending that you are particularly interested in, the Life@50 team are offering special sessions (or salons as they call them) with each speaker for an additional $15 fee. So, if you want to get more personal with the likes of Ben Stein, economist, lawyer and actor, or neurologist Adam Gazzaley, MD, PhD, then this event offers you the perfect opportunity.


Attendees will also get to enjoy entertainment from superstars such as Gloria Estefan, Kenny Loggins, Chaka Khan, and Arsenio Hall, and attend sessions hosted by celebrities and experts who’ll share how to get the very best out of life as we get older. There are also movie premieres of movies “for grown ups” where the stars and directors will be in attendance (including the amazing Sam Elliott).


Whatever it is you are into, or looking to get out of your life, there’s no doubt that after attending this epic event you’ll come home charged up and full of great plans to put into action. Being that it is held in beautiful Miami, you may even come home with a bit of a tan as an added bonus.


AARP Life@50+ National Event is being held at the Miami Beach Convention Center, which is an excellent venue that’s spread across three floors. If you have mobility concerns then you’ll be glad to know that Scootaround is offering onsite scooter and wheelchair rentals, so nothing will hold you back from exploring every inch of this epic event.
