The lounge will maximise connection opportunities between wellness exhibitors and wellness buyers, and facilitate business deals.The introduction of this spa and wellness hub builds on the success of a Wellness Programme launched at WTM 2014, which included three sessions and the Spafinder Wellness 365 Wellness Travel Awards.
World Travel Market, senior director, Simon Press said: “The wellness industry’s importance to the wider travel industry continues to grow every year.
“It is now valued at $3.4 trillion and expands annually as our lives get busier and more stressful – and more people are increasingly concerned about boosting their physical and mental wellness during their leisure time.
“This has seen the wellness industry move quickly from a travel industry niche into the mainstream. WTM is fulfilling this need by giving the wellness industry a platform to negotiate and conclude deals.”The new wellness hub offers suppliers an exclusive platform to meet fresh and established contacts and conduct business in the comfort of the dedicated lounge.
