The 2020 Global Wellness Summit was relocated to The Breakers in West Palm Beach, Florida, US after it became clear earlier in the year that the ongoing pandemic would prevent international travel for most. This first-ever hybrid event, has the potential to be a new model for conferences the world over, across industries. The summit seamlessly combined in-person keynotes with virtual presentations from speakers worldwide, with all sessions available to virtual delegates of the summit attending online. Those present at the summit could choose to sit at a regular banquet chair, positioned at a safe distance from the next, or a fitness ball, exercise bike or cross trainer (provided by Planet Fitness) allowing attendees to stay active during the summit and adding another ‘wellness element’ to the experience.
Attendance in the main hall was a little sparse on day three after the fun of the socially distant disco the night before. I’m proud to say that I was one of the few who did make it on time!
The conference, with its urgent theme of “Resetting the World with Wellness” in the wake of COVID-19, will take place both in-person and virtually, allowing entire global wellness community to participate in the event (Nov. 8-11); Virtual Access Package also includes exclusive access to the Global Wellness Institute’s major 2020 research report on the global mental wellness economy.
