Conversation, Connection, Curation
Dementia Forum X is an intimate, proactive gathering of thought leaders that seeks to reimagine how leaders in the dementia sphere connect and collaborate. We foster high-level solution-based conversations and thought-provoking interactions with the five key dementia sectors of finance, care, business, research, and civil society.
Dementia Forum X is a biennial meeting held at the Royal Palace of Stockholm, that welcomes the leaders in business, policy, research, and care. Focused on interactivity, participants are provided opportunities for discussion and networking, encouraging increased collaboration and knowledge sharing.
The first Dementia Forum X was held in May 2015. Today, it continues to expand under the patronage of Her Majesty Queen Silvia of Sweden. As dementia grows to a major global societal issue, our mission is to raise awareness and increase discussion on an international scale.
Dementia Forum X Offers Leaders a Unique Conference Experience
Dementia Forum X is designed to be different from most other conferences. The Royal Palace provides an intimate setting that allows our guests authentic networking opportunities. It is here that leading business executives, policymakers, civil society representatives, researchers, and care providers can come together for conversations that encourage future collaborations.

Dementia is one of the largest, most complex and challenging health issues facing humanity today. Therefore, it fills me with hope to see the commitment that exists for this cause.
First Lady Cecilia Morel

We had to ensure the rights of the people living with dementia while also looking after their vaccination process. Respecting, of course, caregivers and helping along in the decision-making process.
Dr. Dévora Kestel
Director, Mental Health and Substance Use, WHO
I am hopeful that the more we talk about dementia, the more we can do to reduce our risks and educate others in the same direction.
Minister Lena Hallengren
Minister of Health and Social Affairs, Government of Sweden
I hope that even more people working in the sector get the very important knowledge to make sure that we can meet people living with dementia... with the right care and the right competence.
