Extending Healthspan in the age of Digital Health, AI & Covid-19


Hear from world-class leaders in Aging Science, Genetics, Digital Health start-ups and scale-ups that are focused on maximising healthspan, the biomarkers of aging, preventative health and digital innovation.

Why Attend?

Find out what advancements are happening in the world of aging science, and how scientists, founders and ecosystem leaders are bringing digital innovations to help slow or even reverse the aging process, reduce risk of disease and help people live healthier for longer.

Market Growth

Find out why maximising healthspan and longevity is the next trillion dollar industry. The market for digital health itself is exploding, growing 27.6% CAGR from $86.4bn to $504bn in 2025, with AI Health growing 50.13% CAGR from $2.1bn to $36.1bn in 2025. There is also an explosion in Digital Health Monitoring, with 39% CAGR from $254bn to $353bn in 2025. Digital Health is

bucking the rest of the market: H1 (the first six months of 2020) saw a record breaking $5.4bn invested into the sector, according to Rock Health, as the pandemic reminds everyone of the importance and opportunity in this area.

Importance of Aging

Aging is the main risk factor for most diseases, including non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and dementia, as well as infectious diseases, such as Covid-19.

Only 5% of the National Health Service budget is dedicated towards preventing disease, with 95% being allocated towards sick and palliative care.

Hear from a representative from the APPG (All Parliamentary Group of Longevity) as they share the vision for the Health of the Nation and how by 2025,we can increase the healthy years of healthspan by 5 years.

Impact of Covid-19

Because of Covid-19, every single weak and strong point of the world health care system is on full display at the moment. The need for products which increase people's health and immune strength has never been more clear.

Although this is a dark time for many, we already see major positive signs that this tragedy will be harnessed to make major reforms in the way we as a world prevent and fight disease, slow aging, prevent disease and keep people strong enough to fight infections and viruses.

Hear from those working to reduce the risk of non-communicable diseases from happening in the first place and those playing a major role in this evolving world and are racing now to join the fight.
