GWS reveals 2018 theme

“Shaping the Business of Wellness” will be the focus at the 12th-annual Global Wellness Summit.

Taking place at the Technogym Village, Cesena, Italy, the event’s emphasis will be on the current business landscape and future trends for the ten diverse segments that make up the global wellness economy.

Dozens of keynotes, panels and roundtables will discuss the big businesses of beauty, healthy eating, wellness tourism, fitness/mind-body, preventive/personalised medicine, complementary/alternative medicine, wellness lifestyle real estate, the spa industry, the thermal/mineral springs market and workplace wellness.

The Global Wellness Institute’s much-anticipated update of the Global Wellness Economy Monitor will also be released to delegates, providing all-new benchmarking data and trends for these ten markets, which will ground the discussions about the business of wellness in the latest research and analysis.

“The Summit’s 2018 theme will keep us laser-focused on the emerging business opportunities across all wellness markets–both for traditional industry segments, but also on the ways that wellness is transforming massive industries like retail, fashion, design and architecture,” said Nancy Davis, executive director and chief creative officer at the GWS.

“Delegates will not only be immersed in three days of high-level thinking about the business of wellness, they will actively shape its future, as the summit is known for its many platforms and events that encourage the cross-pollination of ideas, collaboration and networking that lead to new business relationships among the 600+ industry leaders expected.”

The event will be held from October 6-8.
