The Global Wellness Summit has announced the theme of its 2017 conference, “Living a Well Life”, which focuses on how the future of wellness will impact the individual.

Shaped by expert co-chairs, the agenda for the 11th-annual conference at The Breakers Palm Beach in Florida from 9-11 October, will emphasise how new wellness concepts will transform every aspect of human life.

The conference will also analyse the future of major wellness sectors, including beauty, travel, spa, fitness, nutrition, medicine and the environment. Delegates will not only hear from experts about the latest breakthroughs, they will also be able to participate in them - from personal biomarker testing to how virtual reality is being applied to wellness.

The 2017 Summit will have a strong focus on the future of:

– Wellness, Science & Technology: From our DNA to the devices that track our every move; from the latest in sleep science to the air we breathe

– Mental Wellness: From new approaches to improve how we think and feel, to the latest neuroscience research on beauty, to how dance can impact the treatment of Alzheimer’s

– Workplace Wellness: From the impact that a fast-changing work environment will have on human wellness, to the latest research on how people prefer to work, to the “ergonomics of wellbeing”. Conference host, The Breakers Palm Beach, is a global leader in workplace wellness, and delegates will be immersed in new strategies first-hand

– Wellness Communities, Healthy Building, Wellness Architecture: From the development of buildings and communities with wellness at their core, to their impact on residents, communities, and investment worldwide

Three co-chairs with a background in science, technology, workplace wellness and mental wellness will lead the agenda, including Dr. Gerry Bodeker, whose doctoral studies were at Harvard and who researches and advises on integrative medicine and wellness; Maggie Hsu who is an advisor at leading online fashion retailer zappos.com; and global digital media executive Clare Martorana, who recently served as president of Everyday Health’s consumer business after a career as senior vice president, general manager and editor-at-large for WebMD.

“At the core of feeling well is…well, feeling,” said Bodeker. “As chair of the Global Wellness Institute’s Mental Wellness Initiative, I’m excited about shaping an agenda that will recognise the surge of interest worldwide in mental wellness, and that will expand the understanding of the broad spectrum of paths to mental wellbeing and higher human potential.”
