Global Wellness Summit announces ‘Shaping the Business of Wellness’ as 2018 theme

Global Wellness Summit announces ‘Shaping the Business of Wellness’ as 2018 theme
April 9, 2018

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, has announced that Shaping the Business of Wellness will be the theme for its 2018 conference.

The 12th-annual gathering of wellness industry leaders, being held from 6th to 8th October this year at the Technogym Village in Cesena, Italy, will focus on the current business landscape and future trends for the 10 diverse segments that make up the global wellness economy.

During the Summit, dozens of keynotes, panels and roundtables will take a deep dive into the big businesses of beauty, healthy eating, wellness tourism, fitness/mind-body, preventive/personalized 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, comprehensive 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.

Looking forward to the event, Nancy Davis, GWS Executive Director and Chief Creative Officer at the GWS Nancy Davis, explained “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.

“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.”

Since its first release in 2014, the Global Wellness Economy Monitor has become the go-to source of wellness market data for business leaders, researchers and the media-garnering many thousands of downloads and countless citations among press, industry and government users. The full 2018 report will be released and analysed at the Summit, offering a completely updated picture of the size, scope, trends and five-year growth projections for segments within the global wellness economy, along with in-depth regional-level analysis and top country markets for six global regions.

Attendance at the Global Wellness Summit will enable delegates to mix business with pleasure in Italy’s ‘wellness valley’.

Taking place in Cesena, a town between the Adriatic coast and the hills of Emilia Romagna, the Global Wellness Summit will be based at Technogym’s global headquarters, a project begun by Summit host sponsor, Technogym Chief Executive Nerio Alessandri.

The Wellness Valley concept has the goal of making the Romagna region the leading place in the world for wellness expertise and quality of life, immersing people in its unique local heritage: its people, history, traditions, art, nature, music, food and wine.

 At the Summit venue, Technogym, delegates will experience a 37-acre campus designed from the ground up to inspire the wellness lifestyle - not only in terms of physical fitness, but also with a focus on environmental sustainability, architectural wellness and mental wellbeing through the beauty of art, music and fashion. Technogym also features an expansive research and education centre, state-of-the-art gym and farm-to-table cafeteria.
