The 50plus Expo was a long-awaited annual event to embark on an active ageing journey for Singaporeans and non-Singaporean visitors.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the 50plus EXPO 2015 (Singapore Jubilee Edition) was postponed. It was originally scheduled to be held from 27 March to 29 March, 2015 at Suntec Singapore.
The event was postponed to 15 May to 17 May, 2015 at the same venue as a mark of respect to the late founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew who passed away on 23 March, 2015. The 7-day public mourning period and the state funeral on 29 March, 2015.
The 50plus EXPO 2015 is hosted by Council for Third Age (C3A), supported by Ministry of Health Singapore, organised by Pico in celebration of SG50.
