Digital Health and Wellness Summit

Dedicated to Disruptive Innovation

Our Digital Health and Wellness Summit series is a showcase of the best innovators from around the world, bringing digital technologies to improve healthcare delivery for all. It creates opportunities for these innovators to meet end-users (clinicians and patients) and understand their needs and challenges.

This event takes place during Four Years from Now (4YFN) during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, and is dedicated to disruptive innovation around mobile technologies.

Showcasing the digital health market needs with public authorities, hospitals or insurers and the most recent innovations from start-ups, large companies and researchers, the Digital Health and Wellness Summit is a perfect opportunity to identify partners for your projects or your business.

Investors also participate to give their vision of the market and detect innovative start-ups with high potential.
