Octane’s Aesthetics Tech Forum Returns in January 9-10, 2025, Moving to a New Venue at the Pendry Newport Beach and Aligning with JPM Annual Healthcare Conference

Newport Beach, CA – March 13, 2024 – Octane, the leading catalyst for innovation and entrepreneurship in Southern California, is pleased to announce the return of the highly anticipated Aesthetics Tech Forum, scheduled for January 9-10 2025. This premier event, renowned for its gathering of physicians, industry professionals, investors, and entrepreneurs in the aesthetics technology industry, will take place at the luxurious Pendry Newport Beach.

In response to valuable feedback from our attendees and to better accommodate the busy schedules of international and east coast participants, Octane has strategically moved the Aesthetics Tech Forum earlier in January. This timing allows for seamless integration with the JPM GlobalHealthcare Conference, providing attendees with the opportunity to maximize their engagement and networking opportunities on the west coast.

“We recognize the importance of aligning with key industry events and ensuring that our attendees can fully participate without any scheduling conflicts,” said Bill Carpou, CEO of Octane. “By moving the Aesthetics Tech Forum earlier in January, we aim to create a synergistic experience for our attendees, enabling them to seamlessly transition from our forum to the JPM Healthcare Conference.”

Moreover, Octane is proud to announce the selection of the Pendry Newport Beach as the new venue for the Aesthetics Tech Forum. Nestled along the stunning coastline of Newport Beach, this destination resort offers unparalleled luxury and sophistication. Attendees can expect world-class accommodations, state-of-the-art conference facilities, and a picturesque backdrop conducive to fostering meaningful connections and collaboration. For many attendees, an opportunity to enjoy Southern California in January is attractive.

“We are thrilled to have the Aesthetics Tech Forum at the Pendry Newport Beach,” said Cara Parchment, Sr. Signature Event Manager at Octane. “The resort provides the perfect blend of upscale amenities and coastal charm, creating an unforgettable experience for attendees.”

The Aesthetics Tech Forum remains committed to its mission of bringing together thought leaders and innovators to explore cutting-edge medical aesthetic technologies, identify unmet clinical needs, and uncover new business opportunities.
