0

LONDON, United Kingdom  On Saturday 4th June we presented the first ever Business of Wellness Summit, a unique conference for startups, brand leaders and investors to join forces and discuss the future of the wellness industry.

From 9am to 7:30pm, we welcomed 500 guests to WeWork in London, for an inspiring day packed full of panel discussions, dynamic breakout sessions and networking opportunities.

Featuring an incredible lineup of some of the wellness industry’s biggest names, including  Lululemon, ClassPass and Equinox, we listened, we learnt and we debated issues covering the convergence of tech and wellbeing, investment opportunities, trends and innovation, and the retail response to wellness.

Fuelled by Pollen & Grace, BOL, Pact and Botanic Lab, with specially curated goody bags courtesy of Planet Organic, BOW Summit ‘16 was a runaway success.
