Global Wellness Summit 2021 theme and co-chairs revealed
POSTED 09 Aug 2021 . BY Megan Whitby
Originally scheduled to be held in Tel Aviv, Israel, the GWS will now take place in Boston, Massachusetts, at the five-star Encore Boston Harbor – a Wynn Resort

The pandemic woke the world up to the extraordinary importance of both health and wellness, creating a new era in which these sectors and industries will work more closely together

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced its 2021 conference will focus on the growing intersection between health and wellness. The official theme for the summit is “A New New Era in Health & Wellness.”

The 2021 GWS is taking place in Boston, Massachusetts, from 30 November to 3 December, and will be hosted in a hybrid approach meaning content will be available in-person and digitally.

“The pandemic woke the world up to the extraordinary importance of both health and wellness, creating a new era in which these sectors and industries will work more closely together for the greater good of all,” said Nancy Davis, GWS’s chief creative officer and executive director.

“The 2021 agenda will focus on exploring this convergence, and the theme will come to life in Boston, a city recognised for its far-reaching innovation; its unique investment landscape in biotech; and as home to renowned educational institutions such as Harvard and MIT, both of which have given birth to countless start-ups in health and wellness.”

Annual event co-chairs Michael Roizen, MD, first chief wellness officer of the Cleveland Clinic, and Victor Koo, a leading China-based wellness entrepreneur, will work with Davis and GWS chair and CEO Susie Ellis to shape the agenda.

“The importance of health and wellness has taken centre stage in all of our lives,” said Koo, “and there’s recognition that prevention is far better than cure.

“Given the interconnected, global nature of our world, I know how important it is to work across borders and cultures for the common good of all people. The GWS is a key voice and source of influential and innovative ideas around global public health and wellness policies. I look forward to bringing its message to more wellness seekers around the globe.”

The GWS will be announcing more details about keynotes, panels and presentations in the lead-up to the summit.
