The Global Wellness Summit held a press conference August 19 at the Four Seasons in Mexico City about its upcoming November 13-15 conference.
Summit Co-Chairs Susie Ellis (chairman and CEO, Global Wellness Institute [GWI]) and Gina Diez Barroso de Franklin (president and CEO, Grupo Diarq), along with Mexico City Minister of Tourism Miguel Torruco Marqués, explained to the 40-plus major media in attendance (including Bloomberg, CNN, Forbes, Robb Report and Vogue) about the wide-ranging 2015 Summit agenda. They also presented key GWI data on Mexico’s status as a global/regional wellness tourism growth powerhouse: ranking #11 worldwide and attracting almost one in two wellness tourism “dollars” spent across the entire Latin American/Caribbean region ($10.5 billion out of $25.9 billion).
Dozens of newspaper stories and TV segments followed. Here are just a few:
