The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced that Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula, co-founders of wellness media provider Well+Good, will be speaking at this year’s event.
During their keynote presentation, they will give insight on how millennials are disrupting the wellness travel market. They will analyze the difference between what millennials are looking for opposed to the baby boomers in wellness retreats. In addition, they will look at how the two groups differ in fitness, food and other lifestyle components.
“The wellness market is booming in cities far beyond New York and LA—with barre studios, avocado toast and smoothie bars becoming a true global phenomenon in 2017,” said Gelula. “We’re excited to present on future transformations in wellness travel. For instance, if spas were once ‘fix-me!’ destinations for boomers who knew little about wellness, modern consumers—especially millennials—increasingly have their own very sophisticated wellness tastes.”
The GWS will be taking place this year on October 9-11, 2017, at The Breakers Palm Beach, Florida.
