At the co-located Las Vegas Anti-Aging Exposition, over 550 corporate booths displayed the latest technologies from the medical and biotech market aimed at improving and/or extending the human lifespan. The anti-aging/regenerative medicine industry is currently valued at $60 Billion (2007). Growing at an average annual growth rate of 9.5%, this market will reach nearly $72 billion by 2009. [Business Communications Company, Inc., February 2005.] Companies with products and services in the $7.7 billion aesthetics products and services market also were represented.
Explains Ronald Klatz, MD, DO, A4M President: "Since its founding in 1992, the A4M serves as an advocate for the new clinical specialty of anti-aging medical science and acts as a conduit to physicians, scientists and the educated public who wish to benefit from the almost daily breakthroughs in biotechnology which promise both a greater quality as well as quantity of life. The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) is among the fastest growing medical societies in the world today, growing from twelve doctors in 1993 to a current membership of 20,000-plus."
Adds Robert Goldman, MD, PhD, DO, FAASP, A4M Chairman: "The A4M has been a major force in advancing the medical specialty worldwide, responsible for positioning the anti-aging clinical medical specialty as a leading innovative paradigm for healthcare in the aging nations around the world. The A4M co-sponsors the world's largest scientific conferences in the area of advanced preventative medicine. The A4M conferences have achieved what to our knowledge no other medical group in history in any specialty has accomplished, growing in three years from just two international conferences to more than 30 annual international conferences around the world on all continents in 2007, many with the support of governments, ministries of health and international sports federation organizations. Anti-aging and regenerative medicine, as part of the preventive medical specialty, are now practiced by thousands of physicians in private medical offices, as well as at some of the most prestigious teaching hospitals around the world."
