Global Wellness Summit Announces Full Three-Day Agenda


MIAMI—The Global Wellness Summit, the annual event that attracts international business and industry leaders focused on the growth and opportunities to be found in today’s $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, released the agenda and speakers for its 2017 conference, taking place at The Breakers Palm Beach, Fla. this October 9 to 11.

The theme of this year’s Summit is the business of “Living a Well Life,” and the three-day event will feature a lineup of over 50 speakers and presenters, each sharing his or her unique insights on how—and why—wellness is changing the way business is done and what the future of wellness holds.

“The Global Wellness Summit is the most important international conference on the business of wellness: a truly transformative, three-day event where relationships are forged, investments are made and business gets done,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO. “It’s the only conference in the world where global leaders connect around the topic of health and wellness from the point of view of prevention, while immersing themselves in the latest research and exploring the increased opportunities to make a major impact on people’s lives—and the world economy.”

The Summit’s agenda will look closely at big picture trends, such as technical, social and economic changes that are impacting all of its sectors: hospitality, tourism, spa, beauty, fitness, nutrition, finance, education, environment, medicine, architecture, workplace wellness, wellness communities and technology.

Some of the Topics

The packed agenda of high-level keynotes, speakers and collaborative roundtables includes thought-provoking topics like: “Good News/Bad News: Wellness and Technology;” “Fake Wellness or Wellness Evidence: Why it Matters;” “What Wellness Investors are Thinking, Saying, and Most Importantly, Doing;” and “The Impact of Wellness on the Big Business of Beauty.” See full 2017 GWS agenda here.
