The health and wellness sector is thriving. Its £2.7 trillion reach remains unchallenged, even as consumers approach a point of peak wellness. The potential is great for fruitful cross-sector collaborations as innovators cultivate an integrated health and wellness infrastructure that puts consumers in control of their own data. But customer trust is proving increasingly hard to win and maintain, with influencers coming under suspicion for peddling snake oil.
Our new in-house presentation is your guide to navigating the emerging opportunities and challenges in your sector. Our skilled analysts reveal key market changes, rising trends and best-in-class case studies in a dynamic, interactive setting, and provide expert guidance on how to implement the insights in your organisation. Be among those brands breaking out of the technology silo as health and wellness moves towards inclusivity, accessibility and community.

We explore emerging global market changes, from the burgeoning gut health sector to the new platforms increasing access to mental health support and the hotels offering new ways of supporting guests’ wellbeing.
: Rising TrendsWe look at the key rising microtrends shaping the future of health and wellness. These include The Modern Apothecary that emphasises community and education, VR Gyms and their potential impact on real-life fitness, the new breed of wellness influencers who are going primal, and the cultivation of trust through technology.
Will the mass appeal of wellness help to change the healthcare sector as it looks beyond traditional medicine? And as consumers assume control of their personal health data, how will this redefine health and wellness infrastructure? Find out the answers in our probing macrotrend presentation. This macrotrend can also be booked as a separate presentation.
