Topic: Key Marketing Strategies that Incorporate Universal Design
in Differentiating Your Business in the Aging-in-Place Market.
Universal Design (UD) is the master design umbrella under which other design principles such as accessibility, adaptability, sustainability, and visitability allow for a wide range of choices in building and remodeling residential living environments.
The Forum, brought to you by the Suncoast area Universal Design Coalition (UDC), will address providing safe living environments for our retiring population that allows residents to remain in their homes safely and the ability to accommodate visits from their friends and families.
This program will be of value to Remodelers, Builders, Interior Designers, Architects, Tradespeople, and other Professionals that provide home modifications, and personal services to retirees and their families.
