Australia’s Wellness Tourism Summit to be held in October

Australia’s Wellness Tourism Summit to be held in October
July 5, 2022

The Tweed region of NSW will host the Wellness Tourism Summit this October, showcasing the rapid growth and demand in the wellness sector and the opportunities for tourism businesses across Australia.

To be held on 13th and 14th October at Mantra on Salt Beach, Kingscliff, the Summit is being convened by Katherine Droga, founder of Droga & co. and Chair of the Global Wellness Institute’s Wellness Tourism Initiative.

With the wellness tourism sector forecast to grow by 21% annually to 2025, the Summit program has been designed to deep dive into consumer insights and trends and reimagine wellness travel featuring a panel of leading international and local wellness experts.

Introducing the event, Droga stated “the Wellness Tourism Summit will be embracing the theme of Regeneration this year.

“Wellness tourism can support the well-being of not only visitors but local communities, culture, and the environment. Given the recent flood devastation in the Tweed region, we can’t think of a better place to host this year’s Summit.”

The Tweed Tourism Company said the Summit will be a great opportunity to showcase the region’s wellness offerings, with Bradley Nardi, General Manager of the Tweed Tourism Company, adding “we’re so pleased to be partnering with Droga & co. to welcome the Summit to The Tweed and look forward to sharing the many wellness stories of our region with delegates, from local food provenance and restorative nature experiences to award-winning spa offerings.”
