The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the US$4.2 trillion global wellness economy, has decided to move its 2019 conference from Hong Kong to Singapore, with the event maintaining the same dates from October 15 to 17.

“In an effort to ensure travel is as seamless as possible in and out of the Summit, our GWS leadership, advisory board and partners felt this shift in location was important for the collective wellbeing of everyone involved,” said Susie Ellis, chairman and CEO of GWS.

“We are working closely with event organisers and the host sponsor to ensure the event remains first-class and there is little interruption for all attendees and presenters.”

The event will now take place at the Grand Hyatt Singapore.

In a press statement, Ellis remarked that Singapore “is a storied destination and financial centre that will be an exciting home for the 2019 Global Wellness Summit, offering delegates a unique opportunity to gain first-hand insights into the many opportunities available in Asia’s exploding wellness markets, including China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia and more”.

Ellis’ statement added that the Summit is a traditionally sold-out event.

Past Summits were held in the US, Switzerland, Turkey, Indonesia’s Bali, India, Morocco, Mexico, Austria and Italy.
