2021 Annual Press Event


The Global Wellness Institute (GWI) and its sister organization, the Global Wellness Summit (GWS) co-hosted the 2021 Research + Trends Press Event on January 26, 2021. During the virtual event, GWS presented its highly-anticipated “Global Wellness Trends Report: The Future of Wellness 2021,” while GWI researchers presented its groundbreaking Mental Wellness Economy report.

2021 Global Wellness Trends

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) today released its top nine wellness trends for 2021, the new directions that the organization believes will have the most meaningful impact on the multitrillion global wellness industry. “The Future of Wellness 2021” report reflects how wellness is poised to take a bigger seat at the health care table (see “The Self-Care Revolution” trend). It predicts a future industry that will be more inclusive, accessible and affordable (see the “Adding Color to Wellness,” “The Entertainment Industry Jumps into Wellness,” and “Just Breathe!” trends). It also predicts that wellness will get more evidence-based (see “The Future of Immune Health: Stop Boosting, Start Balancing”)—and tackle tougher, more crucial human pain-points (see “Money Out Loud: Financial Wellness Is Finding Its Voice”). The report also illustrates how wellness will continue to rewrite vast industries, from travel, to architecture and design, to the meetings industry.
