spafinder wellness 365 has put together a team of global editors and experts for their expanded international panel of 39 judges who will nominate candidates for the 2016 Wellness travel awards. Spa Business editor in chief liz terry and editor katie barnes are among the panel.

A comprehensive three-part approach will be used to select winners. First and second steps involve nominations and scoring by the panelists to determine finalists, followed by voting by consumers, who will help select the winners.

Panelist nominations begin this month and consumer voting starts in July. Panelists will nominate the top properties on six continents, in scores of countries and regions, and for 20 categories. Winners of the 2016 Wellness Travel Awards will be announced in November at the World Travel Market in London.

"Our goal is to provide travelers with the most objective assessment of the destinations that deserve the highest accolades for providing incredible wellness experiences, from the hidden gems to long-time favorites,” said Spafinder Wellness, Inc. COO John Bevan. “We are grateful to these highly respected editors and experts for devoting their talent and time to identify the top wellness travel locations in the world.”
