Global Wellness Summit releases full agenda for 2022 event

The complete agenda for the 2022 Global Wellness Summit (GWS) taking place in Tel Aviv, Israel, is now live.

Hosted from 31 October - 3 November, this year’s summit will bring together a historic number of specialists from the wellness, medical, scientific, tech, academic and investment worlds to explore the future for wellness and preventative health that lies ahead after the shocks of the pandemic.

“This journey to bring the GWS to Tel Aviv began in 2020 but the world had other ideas,” said Nancy Davis, GWS chief creative officer and executive director.

“It took chutzpah to bring this Summit to life, and the calibre and variety of speakers, the soulfulness and creativity, and the sheer breadth of content, confirm that we have delivered a powerful agenda.

“Getting to know the country, the people and the palpable energy that courses through Tel Aviv is something I want every delegate to feel. Producing a global gathering centred around wellness, at a time in the world when that’s needed more than ever, is an honour and a responsibility.”
