Technogym to host next year’s Global Wellness Summit

The Global Wellness Summit (GWS) will return to Europe in 2018, and is set to take place at the Technogym Village in Cesena, Italy, from 6-8 October 2018.

At the close of this year’s Summit at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, Susie Ellis, chair and CEO of the Global Wellness Summit, announced that Technogym – a company specialising in technologies for fitness, wellness and health – is the 2018 host sponsor.

“As a company that embodies the business of ‘Living a Well Life,’ I can’t think of a better host to carry on the conversations that began at The Breakers in Florida,” said Ellis. “Technogym is an official supplier of the Olympic Games, their products are in over 100 countries worldwide and more than 35 million people use them each day. Technogym is proof that wellness can be authentic, innovative and big business.”

Nerio Alessandri founded Technogym in 1983 after building a prototype of his fitness equipment in his garage. Alessandri’s approach to the business of wellness, including his insights on technology and the building of a successful, publicly-traded company, will drive the dialogue and agenda of the 2018 Summit, as will the unique location in the heart of Italy’s “Wellness Valley”.

The Technogym Village was opened in 2012, and is located in Cesena, Italy, a small town between the Adriatic coast and the hills of Emilia Romagna. The 37-acre campus was designed from the ground up to inspire and encourage the wellness lifestyle – not only in terms of physical fitness, but also with a focus on environmental sustainability, architectural wellness and even mental wellbeing through the beauty of art, music and fashion – and is home to an expansive research and education center, state-of-the-art gym, the Technogym factory, and farm-to-table restaurants.

“Technogym and the entire Wellness Valley are very proud to host the 2018 Global Wellness Summit,” said Alessandri. “Alongside our creative products and solutions, Technogym has been promoting wellness as a social and economic opportunity for more than two decades, and I believe our campus and the surrounding area, which is oriented to wellness and quality of life, is an ideal location for gathering wellness experts and operators from all over the world.”

“When it comes to the Technogym campus, ‘seeing is believing’,” said Ellis. “High design and high-tech mashes with a forward-thinking management style that is awe-inspiring – as is Technogym’s support of the ‘Wellness Valley’ and the impact its Wellness Foundation has made throughout the world.”
