Taking place in Doha, Qatar on November 6th-9th, the Global Wellness Summit offers an immersive experience that goes beyond the typical business conference; and in this piece we find out all the details

This marks the 17th year of the Global Wellness Summit and we are strategically located in the heart of the Middle East, a region that has undergone remarkable transformation over the last 50 years. With billion-dollar investments in infrastructure, higher education, world-class healthcare systems, and sustainability leadership, Qatar is positioning itself as an attractive business destination and a formidable hub for wellness tourism.

At every GWS, delegates agree that the agenda is always robust and the keynotes powerful, but the real magic lies in the opportunity to form meaningful connections. This internationally respected gathering brings together influential leaders from various wellness sectors, fostering relationships that can positively impact delegates’ businesses. Moreover, the Summit provides valuable insights and networking opportunities through an unbiased platform, allowing delegates to make deals and decisions that drive their businesses forward.

Each year, the Summit convenes top executives, economists, doctors, investors, academics, and technologists for high-level discussions on the future of wellness. In collaboration with its non-profit sister organisation, the Global Wellness Institute, whose mission is to empower wellness worldwide, this year’s event will unveil rich new data on the wellness economy.

For hotel owners, the event offers numerous benefits. Regardless of whether you currently do business in the Middle East, it’s crucial to understand the region’s influence on the overall wellness economy. As countries in the Middle East strive to diversify their economies, they are attracting venture capital and international investments, creating numerous opportunities for hoteliers to serve the needs of their high-net-worth population. Moreover, the Summit’s agenda is tailored to address tourism, travel, and hospitality, topics that empower hotel operators with innovative approaches to wellness. This enables them to better cater to today’s wellness consumers, as well as enhance the wellbeing of their staff and themselves.

The GWS features an exceptional lineup of inspirational and influential speakers. This year’s co-chair Cathy Feliciano-Chon, brings a wealth of experience in brand communications consultancy for the hospitality, travel, wellness, food, and design industries. Jeremy Jauncey, known as the “world’s most influential traveler” according to the Financial Times, is a serial entrepreneur, travel writer, and social media influencer with millions of followers on Instagram, who will also be speaking. Additionally, Simone Biles, the greatest gymnast of all time, and Timbaland, a legendary music producer and artist, will be sharing their insights and experiences.

With its engaging program, influential speakers, and unique networking opportunities, the Global Wellness Summit in Doha, Qatar, promises to be a transformative experience for wellness professionals and hotel owners alike.
