The Associated Retirement Community Operators (ARCO) is the main body representing operators of older people’s housing-with-care schemes in the UK. Founded in 2012, we now have 29 members, who together make up 50% of the UK’s retirement community market.Learn More
After the sell-out success of What Next 2016, this year’s conference will bring together the latest thinking from leading operators, thinkers and regulators. With great speakers and fantastic opportunities to network, this is the must-attend conference on retirement villages and extra care housing.Learn More
ARCO works to promote confidence in the sector; raise awareness of the housing-with-care model amongst older people and stakeholders; and increase the volume and quality of expertise in the sector through our extensive events programme.Learn More
With housing, ageing and care high on the national agenda, retirement communities are more important than ever. This will be a formative year for the sector, with significant decisions due to be made which will shape the sector for years to come. Once again, the conference will analyse current developments, and consider how providers can harness opportunities, overcome challenges, and adapt to meet the needs of the next generation of older people.
Topics to be discussed at the 2017 conference include:
Spread over two days, the second day of the conference on 11 May involves a Knowledge Exchange Day giving delegates the chance to gain in-depth insight and engage in rigorous discussion through a range of workshops and tours.
ARCO allows me to hear and see first-hand what colleagues in the sector are doing, and to stay on top of new developments and concepts.
ARCO’s events are valuable for knowledge and focus on the challenges and opportunities our sector is facing – recognising the unique market rather than treating it simply as an extension of retirement housing or residential care.
Finally there is an inclusive forum for all to learn, develop and promote the industry. Really enjoyable … well worth it.
