Analytical Report Benchmarks the 2019 - 2020 Longevity Conference Landscape

Longevity Conferences Infographic and Ex

July 12, 2019, London, UK:Top-30 Longevity Conferences 2019-2020” is a 60-page open-access analytical report by Aging Analytics Agency that uses cost-benefit analysis to identify the Top-30 Longevity Conferences globally taking place in 2019 - 2020, including detailed analysis and infographics on their regional distribution, cost and focus. 


The report is accompanied by a comprehensive online Longevity Conferences IT-Platform that presents data on 150 Longevity-related conferences taking place in 2019-2020.


With the rapid development of the Longevity industry in recent years, the number of events dedicated to this topic has increased proportionately. These events differ in various ways including target audience, main topics presented, entrance fee range, region, etc. 


Potential participants need to be aware of such details while planning which conferences to attend. The present report aims to serve as a guide in this type of decision making, and includes a cost-benefit analysis of the conferences themselves. The report identifies and benchmarks the Top-30 conferences related to Longevity, providing key facts and figures on each.


The list of Top-30 Longevity conferences featured in the report satisfy the following criteria:


  • They are well attended, with a large number of speakers as well as participants

  • They include at minimum one panel on the topic of Longevity

  • They feature speakers who are professionals in the industry


Since the turn of the century, a number of Longevity-themed conferences have proven to have a seminal role, often acting as centres of gravity for the industry and its constituent technologies, players, stakeholders and subsectors. 


In many cases, however, their full significance does not become apparent without the benefit of hindsight. It is for these reasons that the report also delivers an overview of several influential past conferences (with an emphasis on the rapid succession of Longevity conferences hosted by prominent financial institutions and media brands in 2016-2018) that helped to solidify Longevity as the prominent, mainstream topic that it is today.


The rapid succession of finance-centred conferences that occurred in 2016-2018 marked a turning point for the maturation of the industry. The Financial Times' biotech conference, for example, followed close on the heels of The Economist's The Business of Longevity Conference 2017 in Hong Kong on October 27th, 2017.


This constellation of Longevity-themes events held by prominent financial institutions and media brands was not a chance occurrence but a legitimate trend, given the World Economic Forum's 2017 Prosperity in the Age of Longevity panel discussion in Davos, and The Economist's Ageing Societies 2016 in London and The Business of Longevity 2016 conferences in San Francisco.


The fact that very well-renowned and respected brands such as The Economist and Financial Times are now regularly hosting conferences and panel discussions on the subject of aging shows the credibility building around the business of Longevity. A mere three years ago optimism toward the real emergence of geroscience and Longevity was quite low, and it was nearly unthinkable that this topic could be included in the agenda of top-tier conferences whatsoever. But the outlook has now changed, and the healthspan extension is now a logical topic of discussion for world-leading healthcare thought-leaders, investors, analysts and other industry professionals.


Thus, Aging Analytics Agency’s “Top-30 Longevity Conferences 2019 - 2020” aims to give an overview of both the recent history, present state and near-future of the global Longevity conferences landscape, identifying key trends based on an analysis of the regional, topical scope and price-point data analysis.
