/PRNewswire/ -- The Washington Innovation in Longevity Summit
(WIN) happening here December 9-10
at the National Press Club and produced by Mary Furlong & Associates,
is the only conference that brings together a highly curated audience focused on solutions, partnerships, best practices and trends driving the $7.6 trillion
U.S. longevity economy. The event is unique in that it selects the top innovators in aging technology backed by leading longevity market investors to share insights, learn from and connect with the federal agencies, private companies,nonprofits and media as well as potential global partners seeking impactful and sustainable innovation to support longer lifespans worldwide.
"The longevity economy offers vast domestic and global potential for investors and entrepreneurs but there are challenges for entrants to the space," said Mary Furlong
, executive producer of WIN and CEO of Mary Furlong & Associates
. "Our summit is carefully curated to help attendees navigate regulatory, privacy and reimbursement issues and remain at the forefront of trends in aging while also helping innovators scale their solutions with the right U.S. and international partners."

Since technology moves fast and so many players enter the space on a daily basis, it is a resource drain for organizations to meet with every start-up company so attending this conference cuts through the clutter to identify best of breed and pursue quicker yet quality partnerships."
