Global Wellness Summit Relocates to Miami Amid Middle East Instability

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has made the difficult decision to relocate its 17th annual event from Qatar to Miami, Florida.

Originally scheduled to take place in Doha, the capital city of Qatar, the Summit will now be hosted at the prestigious Hyatt Regency Miami from November 6-9, 2023.

The decision comes as a response to the growing concerns surrounding instability in the Middle East region and in full alignment with Msheireb Properties, the host sponsors in Qatar. The paramount focus of the relocation is the safety and wellbeing of the Summit’s delegates, speakers, team, and partners, ensuring a secure and uninterrupted experience for all participants.

Acknowledging the impact and gravity of the escalating conflict in the Middle East, the GWS team expresses its heartfelt support to friends and colleagues directly or indirectly affected by these circumstances. The decision to move the Summit to Miami underscores the commitment to prioritize the welfare of attendees above all else.

Despite the change in location, the Summit’s dates remain as originally announced – November 6-9, 2023. The organizers are working diligently to ensure a seamless transition for those who have already registered for the event. Detailed information and instructions will be communicated separately to registered delegates to facilitate their transition to the Hyatt Regency Miami.

The GWS Summit has earned a reputation for delivering a world-class program that explores the latest trends and innovations in the wellness industry. This year’s event will be no exception, with the Global Wellness Institute set to release the highly anticipated Global Wellness Economy Monitor. Showcasing the industry’s growth and impact, this release will be accompanied by an updated bubble chart that is expected to guide the discourse within the wellness industry.

Keynote speakers are an integral part of the GWS experience, and despite the relocation, an impressive lineup is set to inspire and engage attendees. Renowned gymnast Simone Biles will take to the stage to share her extraordinary story of courage and resilience. Grammy Award-winning producer and artist, Timbaland, will also be present, motivating participants with his personal wellness journey. Many other esteemed presenters will contribute to the Summit’s forward-looking agenda, promising compelling sessions and surprises throughout the event.

With immense gratitude for the support, understanding, and patience of all stakeholders, the GWS team is dedicated to delivering an unforgettable experience for attendees. Relocating to Miami offers the perfect backdrop of turquoise waters and reliable sunshine, creating an inviting atmosphere for impactful conversations and fostering meaningful connections.

As the new venue sets the stage for the 17th Annual Global Wellness Summit, participants can look forward to a transformative event that epitomizes the essence of well-being and fosters collaboration and innovation within the industry.
