The Global Wellness Institute’s Wellness Communities Initiative is the global resource for the fast-growing wellness real estate market, with a focus on communities developed with proactive health and wellness, ecological sensitivity and social connectivity in mind.

But this $100 billion global sector has lacked key definitions and investment criteria guidance – until now. The Initiative’s latest white paper addresses critical questions including: What is a “wellness community”? What are the minimum criteria recommended to deem a community “well”? What measures should be considered when attempting to attract, justify and/or measure investment in this type of real estate? All of these questions/answers will be presented at the Global Wellness Summit in Austria Oct 17th-19th.
