Why the Longevity Leaders Virtual Experience?

In response to global social distancing in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Longevity Leaders World Congress is going virtual.

The situation that the world finds itself in right now offers a wealth of unforeseen challenges, and even some positives, for the longevity sector. It's more important than ever that we address the urgent impact of how we age and how we cater for an ageing society.

>> What does a virtual event mean in practice?

Across four days you’ll be able to debate, take meetings and network with over 500 global leaders in longevity from the comfort of your home office.

You’ll also have access to a mix of live and on-demand content across those four days and available for 30 days afterwards.

Don’t think of it as a physical event but online, think of it as a brand-new virtual experience.

>> Is the content changing?

All of the original content planned for the Longevity Leaders World Congress will be available, in addition to critical new topic areas to suit a dramatically changed world.

These include the application of actuarial science to modelling COVID-19 and its impact on ageing populations, capturing community spirit from the crisis to better serve ageing individuals in the future, the rapid acceleration of changing workplace practices and what this means for the ageing workplace and pensions investment in the wake of economic downturn.

>> But will the networking be as good?

Absolutely. We’re introducing new formats to suit the digital event including live debates (think Twitter storms but without the trolls), attendee chat rooms, interactive online round tables, Investor Q&A and exclusive speaker meet-ups.

You’ll also have access to the delegate list and be able to pre-arrange video meetings or calls with any attendees for the duration of the digital event.

>I’m nervous…

It’s new for us too. But social distancing practices around the world have shown just how productive digital work methods can be, and we’re excited to embrace this new type of event to suit a digital workplace.

We’re working with one of the best platform providers in the business to deliver the Longevity Leaders World Congress Virtual and are confident of providing our attendees with the same fantastic benefits expected from a physical event plus some extras.

We hope you will join us.
