Registration is now open for the 2024 wellness conference taking place November 4-7, 2024 at the Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St. Andrews, Scotland

Miami, FL – November 15, 2023 – The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $5.6 trillion global wellness economy[1], successfully concluded its 2023 event last week and is thrilled to announce Kohler Co. as next year’s host sponsor. This prestigious gathering of international thought leaders shaping the business of wellness will take place from November 4-7, 2024, at the illustrious Old Course Hotel, Golf Resort & Spa in St. Andrews, Scotland – a Kohler Destination.

The storied Kohler Co. may best be known for its stylish kitchen and bath products, but the company also owns and operates luxury hospitality destinations, including the Old Course Hotel in St. Andrews, Scotland. This extraordinary venue, overlooking the breathtaking Scottish coastline and bordering one of the world’s most famous golf holes, will provide an unforgettable backdrop for the 2024 Global Wellness Summit, where C-suite executives across sectors will gather to collaborate and chart a future course for their businesses.

Registration for the 2024 Global Wellness Summit is now open and delegates who register prior to December 31, 2023, will save $1,000.

“There’s so much more to Kohler than the beautiful kitchens and baths they help create,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chair and CEO. “In addition to owning and operating several luxury hospitality destinations, the company also develops solutions that address pressing environmental issues for both people and planet wellness, including programs that provide clean water and sanitation for underserved communities around the world. Kohler’s long-standing commitment to design, water and wellness is very synergistic with the Global Wellness Summit’s roots.”

Nancy Davis, GWS chief creative officer and executive director, added: “Kohler has been a long-time partner of the GWS and has stayed relevant through innovation for over 100 years. Personally, I have long been a huge fan of their commitment to design and look forward to working with the teams at Kohler’s myriad divisions to create an extraordinary Summit at the Old Course Hotel.”

“The Global Wellness Summit has earned a strong reputation for being the most important event on the calendar, and the event in Miami this year exemplified how the organization is helping to drive our industry forward,” said Ashley Kohler, director of wellness at Kohler. “Hosting GWS next year at our Old Course Hotel is a terrific opportunity to extend Kohler’s gracious hospitality to the international wellness community, while showcasing the exciting innovations and experiences at our Kohler Waters Spa and expanding the wellness conversation in St Andrews.”

The Global Wellness Summit is the world’s largest conference on the business of wellness and is an invitation-only event. Registration is now open, and first-time delegates should apply to attend as soon as possible.
