The IGS Experience
This video will give you a flavour of the inspiring atmosphere, educational content and networking opportunities available to you at our annual and scientific meeting. Some of the delegate feedback from last year's conference is included below the video. The Irish Gerontological Society thanks Yosuke Sato for allowing us to use these videos which he recorded at our Scientific Meeting in September 2019.
Feedback from conference delegates (2019):
The best gerontology meeting in Ireland and one of the best internationally!
Essential for the Irish scene.
This meeting was truly illuminating. The level of mutilidisciplnary integration was sublime and really highlighted the approaches that should be taken in geriatric medicine clinically as well as academically.
I felt re-energized regarding my approach to work following attendance at IGS.
Yet another fantastic scientific programme was offered at this year's IGS. The quality of sessions made it almost impossible to choose which to attend. The moderated poster session gave one great opportunity to discuss one's research.
Great conference, with a wide range of disciplines attending. An excellent opportunity for networking, and building future collaborations.
Well done to all the IGS executive and organising committee for yet another, hugely successful conference.
IGS 2019 was my first IGS. I have heard so many things about the conference and it lived up to all my expectations. I will encourage my colleagues to attend future meetings.
Excellent learning opportunities.
Excellent conference. Interesting speakers and diverse topics within older person care.

IGS conference is always a great event & a wonderful networking opportunity.
It is a great opportunity to see all the great work being done in older persons services in one place Love the multidiscipline approach.
A wonderful opportunity to network and socialise. I find it very invigorating and helps to plan research for the coming year.
Continues to be an outstanding scientific meeting.
Very supportive and helpful IGS staff that guided the process of abstract submission really well.
Excellent work of the IGS - just try not to be too ambitious - for us loyal supporters!!!
Very worthwhile, if a little exhausting!
Excellent meeting, very enjoyable and informative. Essential for all clinical staff caring for older people and some managers of older persons' services.
Thoroughly engaging and well organised event with excellent networking opportunities.
The quality of the annual IGS conference is growing from strength to strength. I always look forward to the educational sessions and the opportunity to network.
Excellent scientific meeting, with great opportunities for networking and furthering your research interests.
Really great buzz and lots of opportunities to network.
The IGS is always an outstanding event. I have attended for a number of years and each year is better than the last. I learned lots and had valuable networking opportunities at the Cork event this year.
Excellent and inspirational.
An excellent opportunity to network and share ideas to improve patient journeys.
An excellent and varied programme in 2019 made attendance compulsory for those interested in gerontology.
