2022 NYC Experience Wellness Travel Media Event
Wellness is a $4.5 trillion consumer-driven global market, and wellness tourism is growing faster than any other travel category. As wellness lifestyle expands exponentially post-Covid and reaches unpreceded new levels of global awareness, the time for wellness companies to expand their presence into mass market channels is more important now than ever.
As the leading authority in wellness travel, clean beauty and natural lifestyle, Organic Spa Media is hosting our 10th annual Organic Spa Media Experience Wellness & Travel Media Event, where we entertain our media guests with an organic gourmet luncheon as they visit with our sponsors on the show floor. The luncheon is accompanied by “WELLNESS AROUND THE GLOBE,” an interactive, educational symposium on the latest in wellness travel, wellness living and organic beauty, streamed live to all our virtual attendees throughout the day. Sponsors have the opportunity not only to meet and mingle with the press, but also to promote their brands directly to the trade market.
