The longevity economy is projected to reach $27 trillion in 2026. What will be the impacts of COVID-19, AI, biomarkers, investment and new therapies?

Well, we intend to address many of these questions next week, so please join me and the experts, the innovators, the investors, and the curious, all online, at Longevity2020.

Just four short weeks ago, this conference didn’t exist. COVID-19 had stunned the world with the speed of its spread, and none of us really knew what the world would look like today. But life goes on, and the issues being addressed by the Longevity sector are now more relevant in the context of the pandemic.

So, with half the planet largely confined to their homes, we decided to take things online. It’s been a challenge, but with thanks to our great team, I’m glad to report it’s turning out to be something pretty special.

A huge thank you to our amazing lineup of speakers, and to Johnny Adams and Kate Batz for their support in the early stages. We’ve had such a positive response that we are already planning two more events: one is focused on the biomarkers of aging, while the other is something completely new and very exciting (stay tuned!).

Everything kicks off next week and I wanted to highlight just a few of the exciting speakers that you can see as a VIP (or for nothing) at Longevity2020:

We always wanted to ensure that all presentation content would be free and it is, however, there are costs associated with staging such a huge undertaking. So we’re also offering VIP tickets that will contribute towards these costs.

And, the VIP package:

  • Access to all 5 days of presentation sessions
  • Participation in ‘Ask Me Anything’ (after-party) session with key speakers
  • Celebratory Longevity 2020 T-shirt (included in this package worth $35)
  • Complimentary access to 2 follow-on reunion events
  • Password access to video recordings of all sessions

We are tremendously excited to put on what we believe will be world’s first fully online Longevity conference. So, wherever you are in the world, we hope you’ll join us next week.
