Thank you for your interest in presenting at one of our Health 2.0 events! If you are working on a particularly compelling and innovative Health 2.0 product or service, and want to tell us about it, please read ALL of the information below.

A large part of Health 2.0’s conference programming consists of panels where speakers demo their technology in 3.5 minute bursts with commentators reflecting on what was shown and how they believe it fits into health care. We are looking for innovative technologies that can demo LIVE in 3.5 minutes. That means no PowerPoint and no video on stage!

With the exception of clearly delineated “sponsored deep dives,” which are not on the main schedule, we are not a pay-for-play conference. It may be hubris, but we think that we know a fair bit about the space and hope that our choices provide some “value-add.” So please do not contact us asking to sponsor a panel, so you can speak on it. Sponsorship and speaking are on different sides of a church/state divide at Health 2.0.

  • Applications to demo at the 7th Annual Health 2.0 Europe Conference are available hereApplications are due March 10, 2016.
  • Applications for the 10th Annual Fall Conference are available here.  Applications are due July 1, 2016 at 5:00pm PST.

Speaker submissions and demo slots are reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis and filled based on the story that we’re trying to tell with each session, and are filled several months before the event, so do NOT delay. If you’re uncertain that you’ll be completely ready to speak at the time of the conference, please let us know of your interest now – we like to know what’s going on in the community. Keep in mind, it’s not unusual for us to show products in early stages, too!

Please be aware of our application timeline and process:

If our team is interested in seeing a preview of your demo you will be emailed and we’ll arrange a 30 minute virtual demo via screen-share. After your preview our team will decide if your product fits our event criteria and narrative. Demos selected for the stage will be run through a strict (but fun!) virtual rehearsal process with our production team. Applicants can expect a response either way around a month before the event.

If you have applied and are concerned about your application status, or have something new to share with the production team about your product, email Emily Hagerman,
