Well-Being Travel, a marketing organization dedicated to educating travel professionals about the trend of health, wellness, and medical travel, announced the first-ever inaugural Well-Being Travel Symposium, an invitation-only two-day conference that will bring together travel professionals with wellness experts, hotel executives, spa directors, and travel suppliers to discuss the growing trends in wellness travel and opportunities for travel sellers and consumers. Sponsored in collaboration with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, MGM Grand Hotel (Las Vegas) and The Travel Institute, the symposium will take place Feb. 18 to 19 at the MGM Grand Hotel. “We’re very excited about the upcoming Well-Being Travel Symposium,” says Anne Marie Moebes, executive vice president of Well-Being Travel. “With wellness tourism accounting for more than $438 billion of travel business, it’s an incredibly lucrative niche for both travel sellers and suppliers to take advantage of. Our by-invitation-only symposium will cater both to those who want to first gain a deeper understanding of the market and those who want to get involved.” Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in sessions led by health and wellness experts. Guest speakers will include Stowe Shoemaker, Ph.D., dean of the William F. Harrah College of Hotel Administration at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Anne Dimon, publisher and editor of Travel to Wellness magazine, and others.
