“Puerto Rico is reinventing itself and one of the pillars of that transformation is the older adult. For that reason, at the Baby Boomers Expo we’re committed to offering them tools to expand the knowledge of the people who offer us the greatest life experiences on the island,” said William del Valle, one of the event’s producers.

Baby Boomers is “proof that that there exists a population in Puerto Rico, more than 33 percent to be exact,” that is motivated and focused on achieving a better quality of life, on educating themselves, enjoying themselves and teaching us what they have done over time without limiting themselves to their experiences, but also to learning and having fun,” said Eric García, who also produces the event.
