Adding virtual access means we can bring all the expert insights – and that famed ‘spirit’ of the Summit – to the entire global wellness community

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced its 2020 conference will take place both virtually and in-person, allowing the entire global wellness community to participate in the event.

The hybrid event will combine its in-person conference with a Virtual Access Package: a comprehensive, three-day, virtual pass to the event taking place at The Breakers Palm Beach, in Florida, from 8-11 November 2020.

Virtual attendees will receive:
  • Live, virtual access to all main stage keynotes, panels and interviews with world wellness experts

  • Access to the Global Wellness Institute’s 2020 research report, the first on the mental wellness economy

  • Interactive, global “think tank” and networking sessions, where their insights are heard and published

  • Virtual access to the new Tech Innovation Pavilion, launching at this year’s event.

2020 marks the first year virtual access will be offered to the GWS, with the package costing US$500 (£384, €424) per person.

“The Summit’s DNA is profoundly global,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chair and CEO, “and in this unprecedented year of shifting travel restrictions, we’re committed to an in-depth, truly global conversation which necessitates a combination of in-person and virtual delegates.

“Adding virtual access means we can bring all the expert insights – and that famed ‘spirit’ of the Summit – to the entire global wellness community.”

To register for the Virtual Access Package, follow this link.

The GWS recently released the event agenda, accessible here, and has also confirmed that numerous additional keynotes and panels will be announced next week.
