The only dedicated hospitality and business magazine in the country, Hotelier Maldives will be taking the initiative of organizing a Wellness Summit in September 2017. Planned as a networking and knowledge sharing, day-long event, the Hotelier Maldives Wellness Summit will see a number of industry leaders and related professionals converge for a series of keynote speeches, presentations and panel discussions.

While Maldives is primarily known as a high-end luxury destination and branded as such, the growth of the wellness industry worldwide has highlighted the unexplored potential for wellness offerings to augment revenue for resorts, give a new dimension for the Maldives brand as an attractive wellness destination, growth for new businesses and create new employment opportunities.

The Hotelier Maldives Wellness Summit is planned as an annual event with a committee comprising of industry pioneers and leaders including Jesper Hougaard, Founder and Managing Director, Serena Spa; Renate Hermes, Executive Director, Duniye Spa and Aishath Zulfishan, Spa Manager, Kurumba Maldives. While Jesper Hougaard will also give the lead keynote speech, Renate Hermes will lead a panel discussion on global wellness trends.

In addition to participation from resort general managers, directors and managers of wellness centers and spas in the Maldives, international wellness consultants are to feature in the Summit. They will be making presentations and taking part in discussion panels.

Scheduled to take place at Hulhule Island Hotel (HIH), the Summit will be invitation only and will include a networking session both in the morning and during lunch.

Registration for the Hotelier Maldives Wellness Summit 2017 is now open.
