Longevity Leaders World Congress 2021

The virtual event for leaders in longevity science, technology, business and finance organized by Longevity Leaders (LSX).

04-May-2021 to 07-May-2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown ageing and longevity into sharp public focus. It is now critical that we understand the biology of ageing to improve the underlying health of our populations, improve immune response and reduce disease. Financial wellbeing and security in later life urgently needs attention.

The care sector is in desperate need of innovation and support. And the way that we work and connect with one another has shifted dramatically and permanently, with significant implications for ageing populations.

The Longevity Leaders World Congress is the definitive global meeting with the mission of extending human health span, delivering healthy ageing and financial wellness in the context of longevity.

As three-conferences-in-one, it digs deeply into each facet while shared plenary and networking sessions provide opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange.
