Global Wellness Summit Names Catherine Feliciano-Chon and Yoriko Soma as Co-Chairs

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), a gathering of international leaders in the $4.2 trillion global wellness economy, has named Catherine Feliciano-Chon (pictured), a leading brand development and communications expert, and Tokyo-based spa/wellness investor and entrepreneur Yoriko Soma to co-chair the conference.

The Summit returns to Asia for the third time in its thirteen-year history and will take place at Grand Hyatt Hong Kong from 15-17 October  2019.

“Hong Kong is a vibrant, exciting, business-centric destination, offering a gateway to the Asian marketplace, and we are thrilled to be bringing the Summit here,” said Nancy Davis, Chief Creative Officer & Executive Director of the GWS. “From the world-class hospitality of the renowned Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, to top-rated local restaurants led by some of the world’s best young chefs, to the unique wellness scene in this exciting city, GWS delegates are in for an immersive experience of ancient culture and modern innovation that is the hallmark of Hong Kong.”

According to the Global Wellness Institute’s recently released 2018 Global Wellness Economy Monitor, Asia is the biggest growth leader in key wellness markets. The region lays claim to being the fastest-growing wellness tourism market in the world, with China and India ranking first and second in growth worldwide. In addition, Asia boasts the largest number of spas and thermal/mineral springs in the world and has a fast-growing wellness real estate market.

“Having the Summit in Hong Kong underscores Asia’s importance to the wellness economy,” said Feliciano-Chon, a GWS advisory board member. “With China at our doorstep, Hong Kong bridges East and West, the ancient and modern, and sits at the crossroads of many industries shaping the business of wellness. It’s an honor to be part of the leadership team for the GWS 2019.”

First-time delegates must apply to attend the Global Wellness Summit, while previous delegates and invitees who register prior to 28 February 2019, can take advantage of a preferred registration rate.
