Building For Boomers & Beyond Conference Focuses On Growing 50+ Market

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) will be hosting the leading educational conference for builders, developers, architects and other professionals in 50+ seniors housing.

The conference, Building for Boomers & Beyond: Seniors Housing Symposium 2005, will focus on design, marketing, research, trends and customer satisfaction. Sponsored by NAHB’s Seniors Housing Council, the Symposium is scheduled for May 16-18 at the Westfields Marriott in Chantilly, Va.

“Over the past five years, Building for Boomers & Beyond has become the premier educational and networking event for builders involved in the 50+ market,” said Randolph Rinehart, a custom builder from Charlottesville, Va. and chairman of the NAHB Seniors Housing Council. “The active adult industry is constantly evolving, even on a yearly basis and the Symposium has been there every step of the way. The educational sessions are designed for newcomers who are just getting started in active adult housing, as well as experienced builders and industry professionals who want to refine their product or enhance their knowledge of the seniors market.”

With America’s 50+ population estimated to hit 100 million by the year 2010, the active adult market represents one of the fastest-growing segments in the housing industry and Symposium will give attendees the keys to tap into its success. Educational sessions will highlight techniques for getting started in seniors housing, incorporating technology into design, marketing, universal design and other timely topics in 50+ housing.

The Symposium also features special events for attendees, including a kick-off reception, a golf tournament and a tour of active adult communities in the Washington, D.C., area. “The Washington, D.C., region is the perfect venue for Building for Boomers & Beyond,” said Wendy Pieper of Builders’ Design, Inc., in Gaithersburg, Md., and chair of the Symposium Committee.

“Now more than ever, we’re seeing a growing national trend of older adults choosing to settle near major metropolitan cities, rather than relocating to warmer climates or areas traditionally popular with retirees. Due to this trend, the D.C. metro region is exploding with dozens of active adult communities, several of them located in Northern Virginia.”
