The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced that this year’s event will run from 8 to 11 November 2020, at The Breakers Palm Beach, in Florida USA.
The event is themed, ‘Charting the Course for Resetting the World with Wellness’. With wellness at a pivotal moment, experts at the summit will explore how more holistic and inclusive concepts could transform human life post-COVID-19, and drive powerful growth for diverse wellness sectors.
Included on the agenda are less elitist wellness concepts that can serve diverse populations. Wellness technology will be a prime focus at the summit, which will feature its first Tech Innovation Pavilion. Other topics to be discussed include wellness design, communities and real estate and the fast-evolving mental wellness market.
Former US Surgeon General, Dr Richard Carmona, will serve as medical advisor to set new standards for a safe conference.
GWS is positioned as the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $4.5 trillion global wellness economy. The 2020 event was originally scheduled to take place in Tel Aviv, Israel.
COVID-19 brutally exposed the importance of preventative wellness and the cost of chronic conditions to the world, along with terrible inequities in access to both healthcare and wellness. The conference theme of ‘Resetting the World with Wellness’ is a global call to action – to wellness businesses, government leaders, and the medical and technology worlds – to recognise that more comprehensive and inclusive wellness concepts could remake the world post-pandemic.
“Now is the time to reset the world with wellness because it’s the only concept with prevention and total wellbeing at its core: It’s a framework that can address the immense physical, mental, social and environmental unwellness all around us,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chairman and CEO. “The wellness industry can now have its biggest impact on the world stage and take a much bigger seat at the ‘health table.’ But it needs to be responsible and creative to meet the new opportunities and challenges, which is why we feel it’s crucial to bring the brightest minds together to chart that future.”
