Miami, FL – October 3, 2019 – The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the foremost gathering of international leaders in the $4.2 trillion global wellness economy, is pleased to announce this year’s not-to-be-missed Knowledge Workshops taking place on October 14, the day before the full GWS agenda begins. All delegates attending this year’s conference at Grand Hyatt Singapore (October 15–17, 2019) are invited to attend these special workshops and panel discussions—which conclude in plenty of time to make it the welcome and cocktail reception co-hosted by Hyatt and Grand Hyatt Singapore.

“This is a great opportunity for delegates to get up-close and personal with the founders and executives of some of the pioneering wellness companies, gaining insights they might otherwise miss while mingling with fellow delegates and seeing both new and familiar faces,” said Susie Ellis, GWS chair and CEO.

Delegates can also indulge in mini massages and hydrating express treatments sponsored by Zeel and The Hydrafacial Company in between the workshops they wish to attend, added Ellis.
