Global Wellness Summit gathers business and finance luminaries

Sharing insights on investment strategies in the $3.7 trillion wellness economy.

The Global Wellness Summit announced that wellness industry leaders and investors from around the globe will participate in a roundtable, discussing their own strategies and the opportunities they see in the booming $3.7 trillion wellness economy. Delegates at the Summit will be given a rare opportunity to peek behind the curtain and ask these experts probing questions about the sectors and regions that they are most interested in – and why.

“In stark contrast to the global economy, the wellness economy continues to explode, registering double-digit growth from 2013 to 2015,” said Susie Ellis, Chairman and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit. “We want Summit delegates to leave the conference with insider knowledge about how they can leverage what they’re doing in their businesses to better attract investment and growth.”

Not only will Summit delegates be able to participate in the roundtable session taking place on Day 1 of the Summit, but they will also be able to network with these luminaries throughout the 3-day event, which takes place at The Breakers Palm Beach, Florida from Oct. 9-11, 2017.
