The key purpose of the wellness tourism initiative is to create a global platform of lead stakeholders and trail blazers in what has become one of the fastest growing tourism segments. The initiative will be instrumental in supporting the practical integration of wellness into tourism strategy and highlighting the vast opportunities for private sector business.  Our mission is to share and examine the challenges we face and be proactive in expanding and spearheading education and clear messaging in both the public and private sector.
