For its 10th annual event, Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange is partnering with Hutchinson Consulting and Contento Marketing to draw new buyers from emerging markets.

Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange has announced a partnership with Hutchinson Consulting and Contento Marketing to draw new buyers from emerging markets at the 10th annual hosted event.

Hutchinson partner Michael Tompkins leveraged the company’s executive placement relationships and hospitality consulting contracts to invite top executives from world class wellness and senior living facilities.

Contento’s principal Nancy Griffin is bringing together the brightest minds in wellness and hospitality on Day 2 for an interactive panel, titled, “Beyond Spa: Expanding the Boundaries of Wellness & Hospitality.”

The panel will include Tompkins; Catherine Warren, vice president of training with WTS International; David Erlich, general manager at Amrit Ocean Resort & Residences in Palm Beach; and Vivianne Garcia-Tunon, vice president of operations at The Well in New York City.

“I am excited to be working with the Global Beauty & Wellness Exchange to expand their reach into the wellness and senior living industry sectors,” said Tompkins. “I look forward to working alongside new buyers and attendees at this outstanding, well run event.”

Buyers from emerging markets include Amrit Ocean (wellness residences) and The Well (wellness club) as well as Wellpoint Community, a new mixed-use development in Huntsville, Alabama that combines senior living with leading-edge medical care, wellness programming and hospitality services.

Hutchinson is consulting on the wellness and hospitality aspects of the project. Executives from management companies WTS and LIVuLtd will also be representing multiple projects around the globe.

“The merging of wellness and beauty into new segments brings opportunity for both buyers and suppliers to forge fruitful relationships outside their traditional channels,” said Jamison, president of Jamison Event Management, the event owner. “It is fitting on our 10th Anniversary to pioneer new territory and bring even greater value to our resource partners.”
