Global Wellness Summit Announces 2018 Theme, “Shaping the Business of Wellness”

12th-annual conference in Italy will focus on the future business opportunities in all ten wellness sectors; “2018 Global Wellness Economy Monitor” to be released, the only in-depth research on the size, growth and trends in world wellness markets

Miami, FL – April, 2018 – The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, today announced the theme of its 2018 conference: “Shaping the Business of Wellness.” The 12th-annual gathering of wellness industry leaders, being held from October 6-8, 2018 at Technogym Village in Cesena, Italy, will focus on the current business landscape and future trends for the ten diverse segments that make up the global wellness economy. During the Summit, dozens of keynotes, panels and roundtables will take a deep dive into the big businesses of beauty, healthy eating, wellness tourism, fitness/mind-body, preventive/personalized medicine, complementary/alternative medicine, wellness lifestyle real estate, the spa industry, the thermal/mineral springs market and workplace wellness.

The Global Wellness Institute’s much-anticipated, comprehensive update of the Global Wellness Economy Monitor will also be released to delegates, providing all-new benchmarking data and trends for these ten markets, which will ground the discussions about the business of wellness in the latest research and analysis.

The Summit’s 2018 theme will keep us laser-focused on the emerging business opportunities across all wellness markets–both for traditional industry segments, but also on the ways that wellness is transforming massive industries like retail, fashion, design and architecture,” noted Nancy Davis, executive director and chief creative officer at the GWS. “Delegates will not only be immersed in three days of high-level thinking about the business of wellness, they will actively shape its future, as the Summit is known for its many platforms and events that encourage the cross-pollination of ideas, collaboration and networking that lead to new business relationships among the 600+ industry leaders expected.”

New Data and Insights on Wellness Markets
Since its first release in 2014, the “Global Wellness Economy Monitor” has become the go-to source of wellness market data for business leaders, researchers and the media–garnering many thousands of downloads and countless citations among press, industry and government users. The full 2018 report will be released and analyzed at the Summit, offering a completely updated picture of the size, scope, trends and five-year growth projections for segments within the global wellness economy, along with in-depth regional-level analysis and top country markets for six global regions.

The ‘Global Wellness Economy Monitor’ has been a powerful force in growing the wellness industry, because without respected data and trends insight, investment simply can’t take place,” noted Susie Ellis, GWS chairman and CEO. “There is powerful demand for new numbers and analysis of this fast growing, always changing industry–and delegates will have first access.

Mixing Business with Pleasure in Italy’s Wellness Valley
Delegates will mix the business of wellness with the pleasure of it, as the 2018 Summit takes place in Cesena, Italy, a town between the Adriatic coast and the hills of Emilia Romagna, a unique location called the “Wellness Valley.” A project begun by Summit host sponsor, Technogym’s CEO, Nerio Alessandri, the Wellness Valley has the goal of making the Romagna region the leading place in the world for wellness expertise and quality of life, immersing people in its unique local heritage: its people, history, traditions, art, nature, music, food and wine. At the Summit venue, Technogym, delegates will experience a 37-acre campus designed from the ground up to inspire the wellness lifestyle–not only in terms of physical fitness, but also with a focus on environmental sustainability, architectural wellness and mental wellbeing through the beauty of art, music and fashion. Technogym also features an expansive research and education center, state-of-the-art gym and farm-to-table cafeteria. Summit attendees will experience a slate of wellness activities, as well as a solid dose of “la dolce vita” that only Italy and the GWS can provide. This will include a Wellness Fashion Show at the gala on the last evening of the conference.

Neil Grimmer Brings Passion for Personalized Nutrition to 2018 Global Wellness Summit

Neil Grimmer Brings Passion for Personalized Nutrition to 2018 Global Wellness Summit

Miami, FL – April 11, 2018The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $3.7 trillion global wellness economy, today announced that Habit Founder and CEO Neil Grimmer will keynote at this year’s Summit. Grimmer is committed to revolutionizing how the world looks at nutrition and healthy eating by challenging “one size fits all” approaches in the multi-billion-dollar diet industry.

The 2018 Summit, which is the 12th-annual gathering of wellness industry leaders, will focus on the current business landscape and future trends for the ten diverse segments that make up the global wellness economy, including the $648 billion healthy eating, nutrition and weight loss sector. The theme of this year’s conference is “Shaping the Business of Wellness.”

Grimmer’s first foray into food and nutrition started when he co-founded Plum Organics, a company that disrupted the baby food aisle by replacing traditional prepared foods with a fresh, organic, tasty alternative. In 2013, Plum was sold to Campbell’s Soup, but Grimmer remains an active chairman of the board of Plum Organics.

After the success of Plum, Grimmer found himself overweight and at risk of long-term health issues. His personal journey–trips to doctors, nutritionists and geneticists–prompted the founding of Habit, which was launched with a $32 million investment from Campbell. The personalized nutrition company is the first solution that delivers a nutritional blueprint to guide eating choices for life. Habit measures and integrates over 60 nutrition-related blood, metabolic and genetic biomarkers, collected through an at-home test kit to determine the ideal foods and nutrients needed to reach dietary and fitness goals.

“Neil is on a mission to change the world through food and is the living embodiment of his work. His passion for holistic health and wellness–and how to achieve it–will no doubt inspire Summit delegates,” said Susie Ellis, chairman and CEO of the GWS.

Ellis noted that Grimmer has turned the old adage ‘you are what you eat’ on its head by building a business model around ‘you should eat what you are.’ Initial findings show that 74% of Habit users are able to lose weight by following a plan designed specifically for their body type and metabolism.

Habit is the ultimate response to the ineffective ‘trial and error’ process of fad dieting, and is founded on the deep science called ‘systems biology,” says Grimmer. “We’re at a point where personalization is possible and also highly accessible. Our entire mission at Habit is to optimize wellness through the understanding of the entire body and I can’t think of a better audience to share this with than the delegates at the Global Wellness Summit.

In addition to his business successes, Grimmer was recently named Innovator of the Year by Nutrition Business Journal; is the recipient of an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award; a fellow at the Aspen Institute and can be seen talking about personalized nutrition in his popular TEDx Talk, “Food Just Got Personal”.

The Global Wellness Summit is the world’s largest conference on the business of wellness. Ellis noted that the Summit is ‘invitation-only’ and first-time delegates should apply to attend as soon as possible as it is always a sold-out event.
