WTM to launch “wellness hub”

WTM Wellness Lounge to open on November 4-5
World Travel Market 2015 is putting wellness at the heart of this year’s show with the launch of a wellness hub. The WTM Wellness Lounge will be open on November 4-5, highlighting the rapid growth of a sector that is worth a healthy $3.4 trillion.
In association with Spafinder Wellness 365, the new wellness hub offers suppliers an exclusive platform to meet both new and established contacts and conduct business in a dedicated lounge.
The package for suppliers will include private pods within the lounge, a networking breakfast with wellness buyers on November 4, priority access to WTM Speed Networking sessions, and an online networking tool to connect with the wider WTM audience.
They will also get an invitation to the Wellness Travel Awards Reception on November 4. This builds on the success of a wellness program launched at WTM 2014, which included three sessions as well as the Wellness Travel Awards.
“The wellness industry’s importance to the wider travel industry continues to grow every year,” says WTM senior director Simon Press. “It is now valued at $3.4 trillion and expands annually as our lives get busier and more stressful – and more people are increasingly concerned about boosting their physical and mental wellness during their leisure time. This has seen the wellness industry move quickly from a travel industry niche into the mainstream. WTM is fulfilling this need by giving the wellness industry a platform to negotiate and conclude deals.”
