The 26th Annual World Congress

The 26th Annual World Congress draws thousands of exhibitors and clinicians from across the globe, presenting world-renowned keynotes and speakers who will highlight the most innovative and cutting-edge practices and protocols in modern integrative healthcare. Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in three days of advanced clinical education rooted in the most recent research and studies in modern healthcare, including pre-conference workshops. Our advanced and revolutionary agenda specifically focuses on emerging innovations and future scientific advances, and topics that range from energy medicine to health information technology. Dedicated to sparking and fostering ingenuity, this event offers a combination of unique programming, a diverse audience, and a collaborative learning environment.

  • Connect with Experts & Thought Leaders

    In addition to keynote lectures from thought-leaders in modern integrative healthcare, the conference will feature dozens of additional speakers, learning tracks, sponsored workshops, and product presentations. The agenda is specifically designed to maximize clinical education and sessions, while delivering critical, timely information to attendees about the transformations occurring in medicine.

  • Discover Innovations that Impact Patient Care

    Because the three-day conference is focused on furthering preventive and personalized healthcare—the forefront of medicine—this event will specifically concentrate on the newest, most innovative protocols and practices that are being integrated into patient care. Attendees will leave the conference able to immediately implement their education into practice.

  • Network with Peers

    Thousands of medical professionals, healthcare innovators, anti-aging advocates, and cutting-edge exhibitors from an array of disciplines and fields attend this conference. Attendees will not only have the opportunity to mingle with speakers and faculty members, but also network with other healthcare practitioners and professionals from around the world: all of whom share the same overarching mission in advancing healthcare and redefining medicine.

  • Demo the Latest Technologies

    One of the event’s highlighting features is the exhibit hall, which hosts 350+ companies and exhibitors, whose products range from digital medical technology and devices to nutraceuticals, supplements, and aesthetic treatments. In between general and breakout sessions, attendees can peruse the exhibit hall, and learn about the most current trends in the wellness industry.
