Are you looking to address challenges, understand the cutting edge, and contribute to the future of health and medicine? Join Singularity University and 500 selected participants from across the healthcare and technology spectrum this October 8–11 for Exponential Medicine 2016 (xMED16).

Need some convincing before buying your conference ticket? Here are four things to consider.

1) xMED Is Not Like Most Healthcare Conferences

Unlike most healthcare conferences focused on a single specialty or general field, Exponential Medicine offers a signature blend of exponential thinking, insight sharing, and a high dimension of interaction that sparks new relationships, research, business concepts, and collaborations that can transform one’s practice, research endeavor, organization, industry, and planet.

2) Did We Mention 60 World-Class Faculty?

Exponential Medicine brings together over 60 world-class, thought-leading faculty from the worlds of medicine, biotech, and innovation to discuss what’s currently in the labs, what’s evolving clinically, and what game-changing technologies are emerging in the next 2 to 10 years.

Of those 60 faculty, crowd favorites and Singularity University co-founders, Peter Diamandis and Ray Kurzweil, will be delivering keynotes on bold innovation and future predictions.
