Wellness tourism grew from a $563 billion market in 2015 to $639 billion in 2017–a growth rate more than two times faster than tourism overall. Now it’s forecasted to grow even faster through 2022–approaching a $1 trillion market. With that in mind, we are launching the Wellness Pavilion on the show floor. Curated by Hospitality Design magazine, in partnership with the Well Building Institute and NEWH, sessions spread throughout the day will delve into what this means for the hospitality industry, showcasing not only big brands integrating wellness and sustainability, but also the upstarts redefining the market.
