Leaders in the global wellness industry will gather to strategise about new wellness concepts to transform the world post-COVID-19 at the Global Wellness Summit (GWS) in Florida from 8 to 11 November. The 14th annual summit with the theme ‘Resetting the world with wellness’ aims to positively shape the future of global wellness and drive powerful growth for the sector.
Nancy Davis, executive director of the GWS says, COVID-19 exposed the importance of preventative wellness and cost of chronic conditions to the world, along with inequities in access to healthcare and wellness. She says the GWS is built on a culture of collaboration and it’s time to bring wellness leaders safely together again in person at the summit which will focus on wellness concepts that serve diverse populations, wellness technology, wellness design and mental wellness.
“The summit will focus on technology innovations transforming the wellness industry with the conference’s first Tech Innovation Pavilion showcasing early-stage start-ups and established companies that have executed a ‘virtual pivot’ in response to the crisis. We are committed to creating a model for how a conference should be convened at a time like this and with safety paramount, wellness will be brought to life in unique ways. This may be the most important summit in their history,” says the
