The Longevity World Forum has already chosen the venue for its third edition. Alicante will host this international congress, thus becoming the world capital of longevity. This was confirmed by the event organisers at Fitur 2024, where it was announced that the international benchmark congress on the latest advances in medical longevity and healthy ageing will take place in the second half of October at the Palacio de Congresos del Colegio de Médicos de Alicante.

International benchmark congress
The Longevity World Forum, after two successful editions, has become a world reference event in the fields of science and research focused on longevity and healthy ageing.

It is an international meeting point for the scientific and academic community and the longevity industry with leading specialists in the field to share their knowledge and present the development and innovation of new therapies to increase quality of life and life expectancy.

In previous editions, the congress was attended by top-level speakers from the international scientific and medical community, such as Jay Sarkar, co-founder of Turn Biotechnologies; María Blasco, scientific director of the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre; Aubrey de Grey, scientific director of the SENS Research Foundation; Manuel Serrano, scientist at the Barcelona Institute for Biomedical Research; Liz Parrish, founder and CEO of BioViva Science; Rafael De Cabo, head of the Department of Translational Gerontology at the National Institute on Aging; Álvaro Pascual-Leone, professor of neurosurgery at Harward Medical School; and Bruno Vellas, president of Gerontolope and head of the Department of Geriatric Internal Medicine at the University Hospital of Toulose, among others.

A promising third edition
The third edition of the Longevity World Forum will focus on preventive medicine and epigenetics, as well as lifestyle. It will have a concept that will combine virtual-presential development with internationally renowned speakers, offering all the positive aspects of attending a congress of this magnitude, but also being able to do so from anywhere in the world. It will also incorporate parallel initiatives aimed at dissemination.

The event will seek to reach out to all people with scientific, business, social and economic interests, whether they are health professionals and researchers, companies in the sector, E-Health start-ups, students or anyone interested in the subject anywhere in the world. In this way, the participation and international expansion of the congress will be much greater, guaranteeing a unique and enriching experience.

The world’s leading scientists and doctors who will participate in the congress will be responsible for explaining the latest scientific and medical developments in the longevity sector. The health industry hub will also have a strong presence so that the most cutting-edge companies in this sector can share their technological innovations.

The industry of the future
Interest in longevity is growing at a dizzying pace. Everyone wants to live a healthy life for longer and there is increasing scientific understanding of the biological process of ageing. Hence the growing number of investments in this field from venture capital, the pharmaceutical industry, not-for-profit organisations and the wealthy, such as Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Sam Altman (ChatGPT), Larry Page (Google) and Peter Thiel (PayPal), who support research into biotechnology for ageing and longevity, with the aim of living a longer, healthier and happier life.

The market is expected to reach $610 billion by 2025. In addition, the ageing industry is expected to grow by 28% annually, and could account for up to 20% of the world’s GDP.

In short, longevity is on its way to becoming the biggest industry of the future and the Longevity World Forum in Alicante is an essential international event that brings together prevention, genetics, medical technology, research and social impact.
