Welcome words

We are very happy to invite you to the 34th Alzheimer Europe Conference (34AEC), which will be organised in Geneva from 8 to 10 October 2024, in collaboration between Alzheimer Europe, Alzheimer Schweiz Suisse Svizzera and Alzheimer Genève.

After our successful Conference in Lucerne in 1998, this will be the second time that an Alzheimer Europe Conference is organised in Switzerland and the conference motto this year will be “New horizons – Innovating for dementia”.

These are exciting and interesting times for the European dementia movement with research on new treatments and improved diagnostics making progress. In parallel, we see a greater focus on making our societies more dementia-inclusive and ensuring that the views and voices of people with dementia are fully included in care, policy and research.

We therefore hope that 34AEC will be another great networking opportunity, bringing together people living with dementia and their families, carers and supporters, but also volunteers and staff of Alzheimer associations, policy makers, health and social care professionals, researchers, academics and industry representatives from all over Europe and beyond. Alzheimer Europe conferences are truly unique, attracting representatives with hugely varied backgrounds and nationalities and we are sure that our Geneva conference will continue this trend.

We invite you to share your research, projects, activities and experience via our call for abstracts, so that we can develop an exciting, interesting and varied programme for all participants wishing to learn more about the latest developments and opportunities in dementia care, treatment, management, research and policy.

We hope that your participation in this year’s Alzheimer Europe Conference will be a fantastic experience and that you will get the most out of our exciting and innovative programme and range of networking opportunities, whilst also discovering the amazing city of Geneva.

As organisers, we are deeply grateful to all our sponsors, for supporting the activities of Alzheimer Europe and this Annual Conference in particular. Their support makes it possible for us to provide highly competitive registration rates for a truly unique conference.

We look forward to welcoming you to 34AEC in Geneva from 8 to 10 October!
