The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) has announced
that this year's conference, previously scheduled to take place in
Hong Kong from 15-17 October, will now take place at the Grand
Hyatt hotel in Singapore.
“In an effort to ensure travel is as seamless as
possible in and out of the Global Wellness Summit, our GWS
leadership, advisory board and partners felt this shift in
location was important for the collective wellbeing of everyone
involved with the summit,” said Susie Ellis, chairman and CEO of
GWS. “We are working closely with event organizers and the host
sponsor to ensure the event remains first-class and there is
little interruption for all attendees and presenters.”
Many have been shocked and saddened by some of the images coming out of Hong Kong recently, with
protestors using provocation, intimidation and violence against police.
Roads have been blocked, and major transport disrupted, with
protestors even using intimidation at the airport and forcing HKIA, one of the busiest airports in the world,
to close for almost two days, leaving innocent
travellers of all ages and nationalities stranded.

who have already booked and paid for their plane ticket and hotel
room in Hong Kong. More to come.
