/// The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) announced today that its 2021 conference will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel, November 15-18 at the Hilton Tel Aviv, located on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea.
Tel Aviv, where cutting-edge innovation and ancient cultures meet, has more start-ups than any place other than Silicon Valley and is leading the way in health and wellness technology.
Even during the pandemic, Israel’s tech industry had a record year, attracting more than $ 24 billion in capital.
GWS delegates will experience three days of expert lectures and panels on the very different – and very bright – future of wellness as the world emerges from the pandemic.
The GWS aims to provide a unique experience for participants, immersing them in the vibrant cultures of Tel Aviv and Israel, teeming with history, art, spirituality and innovation.
âAnalysts agree that the pandemic has made wellness the number one priority for consumers, and so much investment is pouring into our industry,â said Susie Ellis, president and CEO of GWS.
âGWS 2021 will explore how wellness is at a crucial tipping point, with so many new directions and opportunities. Every business must now “think like a start-up”, and Israel, the Start-Up Nation, is the perfect place to launch needed new ideas. ”
The GWS has also been drawn to Israel as a host country due to the success and scale of its vaccination program, as at the time of writing about four million of the country’s seven million adults have been vaccinated.
It is expected that by March all Israeli citizens over the age of 16 will be fully immunized and its economy fully reopened.
Alongside the conference program, the 2021 event will also feature the most pre-peak and post-peak trips in its history, so delegates can experience Israel and the region’s must-see destinations.
This will include a variety of tailor-made tours and excursions, including trips to Jerusalem and Petra, all created by Tova Wald, an expert on authentic and moving trips to Israel and the region.
Located in the heart of Tel Aviv Independence Park and featuring its own beach, the Hilton Tel Aviv offers stunning sea views, a full-service spa, a saltwater pool and five varied restaurants.
The hotel is also just minutes from HaYarkon Park, business centers, attractions like the Aviv Museum of Art and Israeli Opera and shopping areas.
