The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has today announced a new location and dates for its 2021 conference.

Originally scheduled to be held in Tel Aviv, Israel, in mid-November, it will now take place in Boston, Massachusetts, from 30 November till 3 December 2021 at the five-star Encore Boston Harbor – a Wynn Resort.

The 2022 summit will be held in Tel Aviv in Q3 of next year.

The 2021 hybrid conference will offer both in-person participation and a comprehensive virtual package, providing access to all the mainstage keynotes and panels focused on the very different future for wellness as the world emerges from the pandemic – on-demand for every time zone.

Registration is now open, learn more at the official GWS website.

The GWS has earned a reputation for stoicism in the face of a wide range of challenges over the years – the decision to relocate this year’s event marks the third consecutive instance where the GWS has had to change location.

With a new era unfolding that will be defined by unprecedented intersections between health and wellness, the GWS believes Boston is the perfect place for the conference.

“After consulting with the GWS’ global Board of Advisors and our close partners in Israel, we made the decision to pivot to the US again this year,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chair and CEO.

“We chose Boston because there’s no better place to gather health and wellness leaders to rethink the place of wellness and prevention in society, medicine, technology and in the investment world – at the very highest level.”

Boston is known as the “brainpower city,” with a renowned health and wellness ecosystem; a lively innovation and investment landscape in “all things health”; and is home to some of the world's most renowned universities including Harvard, MIT, Boston University and Tufts University.

It’s also the number-two place to raise venture capital in the US (behind Silicon Valley) and a hotbed of health and wellness start-ups, from health provider tech companies.

Further information on the summit’s theme, topics and speakers will be announced in the coming weeks.

The GWS has negotiated special room rates for delegates, and hotel booking is open here.
