The complete agenda for the 2022 Global Wellness Summit (GWS) taking place in Tel Aviv, Israel, is now live.

“Getting to know the country, the people and the palpable energy that courses through Tel Aviv is something I want every delegate to feel. Producing a global gathering centred around wellness, at a time in the world when that’s needed more than ever, is an honour and a responsibility.”
