The Global Spa & Wellness Summit has undergone a name change, and is now the Global Wellness Summit 

Susie Ellis, chairman and chief executive of the Global Wellness Summit, said: “We feel the time has come to broaden our reach and be more inclusive, as so many industries now intersect wellness in ways we could not have imagined.” 

The organisation, established in 2007 as the Global Spa Summit, underwent a structural reorganisation in 2014. 

The Global Wellness Institute was set up as an umbrella organisation, comprising the Global Wellness Institute, the Global Wellness Tourism Congress and the Wellness Evidence website. 

The span of the Global Wellness Tourism Congress, now in its third year, is set to expand this year, with four events planned. 

The final event will take place as part of the Global Wellness Summit in Mexico City on November 13-15.
