The 2019 Global Wellness Summit (GWS), initially set to take place October 15-17, 2019 at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, will now be held at the Grand Hyatt Singapore on the same dates. The news comes shortly after Hong Kong has been in the spotlight as political protests have made travel to the region increasingly difficult. 

“In an effort to ensure travel is as seamless as possible in and out of the Global Wellness Summit, our GWS leadership, advisory board and partners felt this shift in location was important for the collective wellbeing of everyone involved with the Summit,” says Susie Ellis, chairman and CEO of GWS. “We are working closely with event organizers and the host sponsor to ensure the event remains first-class and there is little interruption for all attendees and presenters.”

Ellis also remarks that Singapore is a celebrated destination and financial center that will also be an exciting host of the Summit, as it will offer delegates a unique opportunity to gain first-hand insights to Asia’s exploding wellness markets, which includes China, India, Indonesia, Japan, and Malaysia, among others.
