  • Ideable organised the leading event in elderly care technology use in Spain, AgingBilbao, which over the course of a day presented the main public and private stakeholders in the industry in Spain, along with some major international companies such as Samsung and Tunstall, who also attended to present their new products for the industry.

    Iñaki Bartolomé presented all the lectures, in addition to presenting Kwido to all the attendees, of which there were more than 160 on-site, and many more attending internationally via streaming.
