HJ Sims 2020 Late Winter Conference Recap

Thank you!

On behalf of the entire HJ Sims Investment Banking team, we want to thank you for attending the 17th Annual HJ Sims Late Winter Conference at the InterContinenal San Diego in San Diego, California. We at HJ Sims are proud of our commitment to furthering conversation about financing methods & operating strategies in the Senior Living Industry. Bringing together a dynamic group of speakers from Non-Profit and Proprietary Senior Living Providers, as well as outside experts with thought-provoking views, it is our goal to have provided profound insight and an invaluable forum for exchanging ideas and information.

We also recognize that our conference was one of the last in-person events that was fortunate to take place. We appreciate those who attended, and we look forward to when we can get together in-person again.

Post-Conference Follow-Up

Our Conference Recap provides comprehensive coverage of the many sessions and event highlights from the 2020 HJ Sims Late Winter Conference.

Highlights include:

  • Keynote speakers from outside the senior living industry who shared valuable ideas from fields like Canyon Ranch® – the leader in luxury health and wellness introduced a potential new concept for senior living communities; Dr. Matthew Lieberman, a dedicated researcher on cognitive social neuroscience where we explored research indicating that we need to be connected socially to be physically and psychologically healthy; and Dr. Robert Genetski, an economist who led a discussion of the current financial markets where we explored principles vital to economic and political freedom.
  • Informal and memorable activities to bolster connection and conversation, included a glorious morning on the waters of San Diego Harbor for sailors and fishing enthusiasts; golfing at the world-renowned Torrey Pines; tasting a sample of San Diego’s best brewery and distillery products; and sharing an incredible evening with friends and a few new animal pals at the famed San Diego Zoo.
  • Educational sessions that covered topics such as: acute and post-acute care, medical and recreational cannabis, serving middle-income seniors, strategies to avoid moving from a stressed to distressed financial or operational situation, and a new approach to incorporating wellness in senior living.
