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.

“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.

“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.”
