iiBIG is pleased to announce our “Opportunities in SENIOR HOUSING & CARE” conference to be held April 3-4, 2018 at the PwC Auditorium in New York City. This 1 ½-day event will include investors, lenders, payors, senior housing and care entrepreneurs, and deal-makers who will gather to assess opportunities in the dynamic and growing senior housing sector.


This executive summit will feature a speaking faculty of over 30+ leading experts and insiders. As baby-boomers have begun to move into their retirement years, this sector is poised to experience sustained growth on many levels. This event will focus on opportunities along the entire continuum of senior care, from in-home medical and non-medical services, to hospitalizations, and everything in between: the demand for senior housing retirement communities, independent- and assisted-living facilities, memory care, skilled nursing care and other needs that present unprecedented opportunities.

Whether you are an experienced senior housing entrepreneur, investor, lender or deal-maker; or looking for capital, synergistic deals or other opportunities; or are considering entering this thriving and growing sector for the first time, you do not want to miss, iiBIG’s “Opportunities in SENIOR HOUSING & CARE” – April 3-4, 2018, at the PwC Auditorium, 300 Madison Avenue, in New York City.

Join and participate in OPPORTUNITY ROUNDTABLES sessions like these…

    The conference opens with a Keynote panel on the “State of the Senior Housing & Care Industry” from the proverbial ’36-thousand feet.’ The panel will be made up of leading SENIOR HOUSING experts, INVESTORS and DEAL-MAKERS with first-hand information on the status of – and investment opportunities in – this high-demand sector.
  • What’s Next in Senior Care?  Alternative care models, tech-enabled services and promoting the overall well-being of the aging population
  • M&A Issues in Senior Housing: While non-profits still dominate the overall senior care sector, deal-flow has been traditionally higher in the for-profit space. Will that trend continue, or is there a growing appetite for roll-ups and consolidations in the non-profit senior care sector? What are the specific issues that are unique to the for-profit vs. the not-for-profit sector?
  • Private Investors Roundtable: Senior housing and care investing from the POV of private equity, VCs and other financial buyers. How are financial investors sizing up deal-flow opportunities in this sector over the next 12 months?
  • Lenders Roundtable: Hear from traditional, specialty and alternative lenders on the availability of capital for completing senior housing and care transactions. What are the key issues to be considered when marshalling leverage in a low-interest-rate environment?
  • Senior Real Estate Roundtable: REITS and others on the unique real estate-related investment considerations in long term care, skilled nursing, independent and assisted living, and other senior care facilities. With United States-based real estate still among the safest of harbors for foreign investors, what role will foreign investors and lenders play in the year(s) ahead?
  • Senior Care Distressed Debt, Bankruptcy & Restructuring Roundtable: Senior housing operators have become highly leveraged with both long-term, tax exempt debt (non-profits); and shorter-term, privately-financed debt (for-profits). At the same time, operating costs and regulatory compliance costs continue to erode profits. How are lenders, investors, attorneys and restructuring and turnaround experts stepping in to deal with the increasing levels of distressed situations in the senior housing and care space?
  • Transaction Services Roundtable: An examination of best practices in valuations, regulatory compliance, due diligence and more. What are the “dos and don’ts” before, during and after the senior housing deal?
  • Legal & Regulatory Roundtable: The patchwork of local, state, and federal regulations affecting the senior care sector are constantly-changing and often confusing. What are the latest legal and regulatory issues that investors, operators and deal-makers need to understand?
  • Sector-Focus: Skilled Nursing and Assisted Living Roundtable. Senior level representatives from the skilled nursing and assisted living sectors and other experts on the investment trends and other issues affecting these business models. How are skilled nursing and assisted living firms adapting and setting themselves apart in this competitive marketplace?
