Manova 2019 Dates Announced


Organizers announce the second edition of the Global Summit on the Future of Health slated for October 14-16, 2019 in Minneapolis.


Building on the success of this fall’s three-day MANOVA Global Summit on the Future of Health, organizers are confirming the dates for MANOVA 2019, scheduled for October 14-16 in downtown Minneapolis. The 2019 MANOVA Summit is set to convene international thought leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs and senior executives for a conversation on the biggest trends, challenges and innovations across the health and healthcare landscapes.

In 2018, the first MANOVA Summit featured a robust lineup of over 110 speakers from trail-blazing health and healthcare companies, government and policy institutions, and technology enterprises. The inaugural Summit gathered over 1,000 attendees from 6 continents and 700 companies. The MANOVA 2019 Summit is set to be bigger and bolder, featuring inspirational speakers, unique networking opportunities, and dynamic interactive sessions. The first list of confirmed speakers will be formally announced in early 2019.
