The Tweed to host Wellness Tourism Summit

Wellness Tourism Summit

The Tweed will host the Wellness Tourism Summit this October, showcasing the rapid growth and demand in the wellness sector and the opportunities for tourism businesses across Australia.

To be held on October 13 and 14, the Summit is being convened by Katherine Droga, founder of Droga & co. and chair of the Global Wellness Institute’s Wellness Tourism Initiative.

Globally the wellness tourism sector is forecast to grow by 21 per cent annually to 2025. The program has been designed to deep dive into consumer insights and trends and reimagine wellness travel featuring a panel of leading international and local wellness experts.

“The Wellness Tourism Summit will be embracing the theme of Regeneration this year,” Droga said.

“Wellness tourism can support the well-being of not only visitors but local communities, culture, and the environment. Given the recent flood devastation in the Tweed region, we can’t think of a better place to host this year’s Summit.”

The Tweed Tourism Company said the summit will be a great opportunity to showcase the region’s wellness offerings.

“We’re so pleased to be partnering with Droga & co. to welcome the Summit to The Tweed and look forward to sharing the many wellness stories of our region with delegates, from local food provenance and restorative nature experiences to award-winning spa offerings,” said Bradley Nardi, general manager of the Tweed Tourism Company.
