Participant UnConference

Join your fellow participants in a refreshingly unusual discussion led by… you!

Rather than a one-to-many lecture or panel, an UnConference allows conference participants to propose ideas, topics, or questions for discussion.

These sessions are really, truly discussions, not presentations. No projectors or slides are allowed, and there is no single presenter.

When you submit a topic using the form to the left, you are then able to facilitate a discussion and set the tone, but you must engage the group and allow other attendees to participate as equals.

Exponential Medicine 2016 will once again be taking place in the Hotel Del Coronado, located just 20 minutes from the San Diego International Airport. Often referred to as magical and iconic, this beachfront location opened in 1886 as the country's grandest seaside resort. It continues to be one of the oldest and largest all-wood buildings in California, and was given National Historic Landmark designation in 1977.

San Diego International Airport is the closest airport (SAN), a 15 minute drive to the site of the conference (Hotel Del Coronado).

Exponential Medicine does not arrange transportation to or from the local airports. Click here for directions or contact Del Concierge at [email protected] or 800-HOTEL-DEL.


While our Hotel block has expired, there are still rooms available in the Hotel Del Coronado. To reserve a room please visit their site here.

There are other great options for lodging in Coronado. Here are some of our suggestions including a link to their websites for reserving a room.

Morning Activities

Don't forget to bring your workout or lounge clothes to participate in the following activities during your stay. Each activity begins at 7:00AM.

Beachside Meditation with Swami Saraswati

Come join Swami Satya Brahmananda Saraswati, retired Stanford professor and founder and spiritual head of The Universal Yoga Center as he leads us in a morning meditation practice.

Awakening the Creative Mind

Join former Disney Animator and Master Creator Dave Zaboski for an enlightening journey to the source of your own creativity. No experience necessary! 7AM in the Carousel Room.

Morning Stretch

This is a stretching/awakening class for all levels, lead by Sierra Campbell. Some yoga, some meditation, all you. You may be sitting most of the day, so come into your body in the morning and wake up to your authentic self.


There will be a causal walk/run group, as well as a more intense running group. Both will meet in front of the Windsor Lawn by the edge of the beach.
