What Industry Experts Are Saying

“The Longevity Economy, ‘the sum of all economic activity serving the needs of Americans over 50,’ is responsible for at least $7.1 trillion in economic activity every year.”

Jody Holtzman, Senior Vice President, AARP

“Mary Furlong has had a profound impact on Link•age. Mary‘s ”What’s Next“ and ”Boomer Venture“ meetings have been invaluable in helping shape our company‘s strategy and focus. We truly look forward to expanding our relationship with Mary and her organization. I would highly recommend that anyone interested in working with Boomers seek to develop a relationship with MFA!”

Scott Collins, President and CEO, Link-age

“If you are involved in marketing products or services to baby boomers, you should absolutely be working with Mary Furlong. Mary has an amazing network, and is the best person I‘ve ever met at connecting people who can help each other. I’ve attended her Boomer Business Summit for the past three years, and have left every conference with at least one new partner and at least one new customer.”

Andy Cohen, Founder and CEO, Caring.com

Our Collaboration With The American Society on Aging

For more than a decade, MFA has collaborated with the American Society on Aging (ASA) to present the What’s Next Boomer Business Summit in conjunction with ASA’s annual Aging in America national conference. Scheduled this year for April 15 – 18 in New Orleans, Aging in America is the nation’s largest multidisciplinary conference on aging issues, featuring programming unrivaled for its breadth and depth. More than 500 presentations during the four-day conference offer a comprehensive view of the current and coming trends in aging research, practice and policy, ample networking opportunities, and an exhibit hall with more than 100 business and social entrepreneurs and advocates.
