11 Top Biohacking Summits, Conferences & Events in 2021 (Virtual & In-Person)

Events, conferences, and virtual summits are among the best ways to meet fellow biohackers and stay abreast of exciting developments in health & wellness.

More than other biohacks, well-organized events can instantly enrich your life. You’ll forge powerful lifelong relationships with other progressive thinkers. Choose poorly, however, and you’ll completely waste your time.

Elite biohackers have an insider secret. Something that would have saved me thousands and days that felt wasted. They prioritize the conferences with proven track records.

In today’s post I’ll cover the biggest, most anticipated biohacking conferences, summits, and events of 2021 (and beyond).

I’ll update the post as I come across new events. Bookmark this page to ensure you don’t miss out.

The team behind the Helsinki Biohackers Summit has expanded and is offering a second venue. This year in Amsterdam.

Biohackers Summit began in Finland. It’s the oldest—and widely considered— world’s top biohacking conference. People flock from every country. Many of today’s most popular biohacking gadgets (like the Oura Ring) debuted here. This year’s theme is “hacking the ego”. Expect a heavy focus on the mind, purpose, and connection. From resilience, to conscience and transcendence, Biohackers Summit will take you to the forefront of biohacking. It’s still far away, so join their email list for updates, webinars, and offers.

I recently discovered Biohacking Congress, and don’t let the name fool you, this is not a politic event. Though it’s smaller compared to some of the monsters above, Biohacking Congress put on an event in 2020 and another conference in March 2021. Now, they’re back at it again. They have the largest list of panelists. You’ll hear from many of the biohackers on the front lines. Make sure to register early, as the fee 10x’s for last-minute sign-ups!

Biohacking Conference Live

biohackingconference upgradelabs live

Overview

Type: Live In-Person Conference

Date: September 10th – 12th, 2021

Location: Beverly Hills, CA

Price: $1,799 (general admission), $2,999 (preferred admission), $4,299 (VIP admission + bonuses)

Speakers: Dave Asprey, Naveen Jain, Vishen Lakhiani, BJ Fogg, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Jim Kwik, Joe De Sena, Dr. David Rabin, Dr. Daniel Stickler, John Gray, Dr. Matt Cook, Brian Hoyer, Nick Pineault, Dr. Ann Shippy

Biohacking Conference is put on by Dave Asprey’s Upgrade Labs based out of Santa Monica. Upon visiting their site, you’re immediately hit with a decision: virtual or in-person. As you’d expect from the “father of biohacking”, Dave & Co secured a solid lineup. Luckily, both venues feature the same lineup. Though it’s more pricey than some of the other conferences, the Biohacking Conference often has more cutting-edge technology and is specific to biohacking. Thus, it attracts pure biohackers (rather than a blend that includes ancestral living folk).

Biohacking Conference Virtual

Overview

Type: Virtual Summit

Date: May 8, 2021 Virtual

Location: Worldwide (Virtual)

Price: $99 (general admission), $199 (upgraded admission + recordings), $299 (VIP admission + bonuses)

Speakers: Dave Asprey, Naveen Jain, Vishen Lakhiani, BJ Fogg, Dr. Joseph Mercola, Jim Kwik, Joe De Sena, Dr. David Rabin, Dr. Daniel Stickler, John Gray, Dr. Matt Cook, Brian Hoyer, Nick Pineault, Dr. Ann Shippy

A more affordable one-day edition to the Upgrade Labs flagship biohacking conference, that features many of the same top guests. Like other virtual events, there’s no access to the latest gizmos and gadgets at various vendors. But if you’re purely seeking knowledge, however, this online summit will work.

Metabolic Health Summit

Overview

Type: Live In-Person Conference

Date: May 5th – May 8th, 2022

Location: Santa Barbara, CA, USA

Price: $421.99 (early bird admission), $263.74 (VIP Mixer GA ticket add-on)

Speakers: TBD

For the 5th consecutive year, the Metabolic Health Summit (MHS) has brought together international communities to explore the science behind ketosis and metabolic therapies. MHS seeks to merge the gap between science and society. As such, you’ll hear the latest research broken down and summarized for the layperson. Since it’s still far away, the speaker lineup won’t come out for months. Expect big celebrations, as this upcoming conference marks the 101st anniversary of the ketogenic diet! 

Paleo f(x)

Overview

Type: Live In-Person Conference

Date: Undisclosed

Location: Austin, TX, USA

Price: $172 (expo pass), $477.60 (premier badge), $1,181.60 (VIP badge)

Speakers: Ben Greenfield, Dr. Steven Gundry, John Gray, Dr. Tom O’Bryan, Dr. Anna Cabeca, Shawn Wells, Dr. Ted Achacoso, Siim Land, Joe Cohen, Mansal Denton, Robb Wolf, Dr. Dale Bredesen, Daniel Vitalis, Katie Wells, Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Gabrielle Lyon, Dr. Daniel Pompa, JJ Virgin, Mark Sisson

If you choose only one event to attend, make it Paleo f(x). From the stories I’ve heard, it just gets better every year. What started as a conference centered around the paleo died has expanded into the top biohacking event in the US. Paleo f(x) regularly has the most anticipated speaker lineup of any health event. It’s no wonder that Paleo f(x) has become the annual gathering point for the world’s top experts, doctors and practitioners. Be warned: once you go, it’ll become hard to miss. Best of all, the GA pass is reasonably priced. I’m seriously considering moving to Austin, and events like these are a big reason.

Mindvalley A-Fest

mindvalley afest

Overview

Type: Festival

Date: October 21-24, 2021

Location: Jordan

Price: $3,295

Speakers: Dave Asprey, Robin Farmanfarmaian, Ben Greenfield, JJ Virgin, Dr. Mark Hyman, Steven Kotler, Emily Fletcher, Jim Kwik, Jon & Missy Butcher, Tom Bilyeu, Eric Edmeades, and dozens more

Mindvalley A-Fest is a highly curated members-only event that attracts great minds from around the world. Incredible parties and excursions, and the festival-like experience justify the steep sticker price. A-Fest is on my bucket list. If you have the funds and the ability to travel to the exotic location, it’s a rare opportunity — that is, if you get in!

Biohacking Events

Biohack The World

biohacktheworld

Overview

Type: Live In-Person Conferences + Events

Date: TBD

Location: New York City, NY, USA

Price: Donations

Speakers: TBD

New York City biohackers are fortunate to have David Choi, and his creation, Biohack the World (BtW). Once a hidden gem, that grew to 200+ attendee last time. David hosts more professional biohacking events than any other group. Events that compete with the others on this list. If you happen to visit NYC, make your trip coincide with Biohack the World. There’s currently nothing planned for 2021, but I’m confident David has something up his sleeve.

Primalhacker Retreats

primalhacker 1

Overview

Type: Virtual Summit

Date: January 27th-30th, 2022

Location: Amery, Wisconsin, USA

Price: $79 – $3,400

Speakers: Thaddeus and Tomorrow, Waxela Sananda, TBD

Thaddeus and Tomorrow, the couple behind the Primalhacker website, put on a small annual retreat. If you’re looking to experience the truly ancestral side of biohacking, complete with spirituality, yoga, shamanic breathwork, sauna, and light, this is your event. To complement the activities, they also bring in Waxela Sananda and various other guest speakers. 

Biohacking Online Summits, Live Conferences, & Events

Quarantine has lead to a massive uptick in the interest in preventative medicine, health optimization, and biohacking.

It’s awesome to see the surge of interest by folks that would have brushed off biohacking as a fad in other circumstances.

Humans are visual creatures.

Zoom, virtual events, and online biohacking communities won’t replace genuine in-person connection.

I planned to begin a NYC biohacking Meetup group in March 2020 (bad timing, I know). While I’ve paused those plans, I’ve been counting down the days until local events resume. Of all demographics, health optimizers have the least to fear.

My favorite biohacking conferences & summit on my must-attend list include:

Have I missed any? What biohacking events are you looking forward to?
