GWS Announces 2018 Theme


The Global Wellness Summit  has announced its 2018 theme: “Shaping the Business of Wellness.”

The 12th annual conference will take place Oct. 6-8, 2018 at Technogym Village in Cesena, Italy, and will focus on the current landscape of and future trends in the wellness industry through a series of keynotes, panels and roundtables. Topics will address diverse segments in the global wellness economy including: 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.

Additionally, delegates will receive the Global Wellness Institute’s updated Global Wellness Economy Monitor, offering all-new benchmarking data and trends for each segment.

“The Global Wellness Economy Monitor has been a powerful force in growing the wellness industry, because without respected data and trends insight, investment simply can’t take place,” said chairman and CEO Susie Ellis. “There is powerful demand for new numbers and analysis of this fast growing, always changing industry–and delegates will have first access.”

“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,” said Nancy Davis, executive director and chief creative officer. “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.”
