The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) is an influential event that brings together leaders from various sectors of the wellness industry to shape the future of global wellness. The 18th Annual Summit will be held in St. Andrews, Scotland, from November 4-7, 2024, at the prestigious Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa.

The Global Wellness Summit is recognized as the premier gathering for leaders in the multitrillion-dollar wellness economy. The 2024 theme, "A Watershed Moment for Wellness," will focus on the pivotal growth and disruption within the industry, particularly emphasizing water-related wellness trends. This includes new interest in bathing, sauna, hot springs, cold immersion, and wild swimming experiences, as well as the wellness industry's role in fostering a sustainable "blue economy."
