It’s a great honour to be selected as co-chair to help build an event that will give delegates a powerful new knowledge base and business leads
– Amir Alroy

Amir Alroy, co-founder of Israeli wellness innovation hub, Welltech1, has been named o-chair of the Global Wellness Summit (GWS) 2020, which will be held in Tel Aviv, Israel from 10-13 November 2020.

Alroy will contribute to the agenda for the annual event which focuses on the business and future of wellness.

He was named to bring expertise in what’s unfolding in wellness innovation and investment.

Alroy co-founded Welltech1, which invests in and accelerates wellness start-ups, increasing their viability and connecting them to global partners. He was also founder and CEO of Cloud 9 Wellness Clubs, in Israel.

“My goal is to immerse GWS 2020 attendees in the best and brightest ideas being developed by companies all across the wellness spectrum and have them meet the leaders that are shaking up the industry,” said Alroy.

He will share the role of chair with Ömer Isvan, president of Servotel Corporation – an advisory company for global investment and development of hotels, resorts and integrated mixed-use destinations.

GWS executive director, Nancy Davis, commented: “It’s hard to imagine two better chairs for our Tel Aviv Summit. Both are experts in the business of wellness and its investment landscape, and both are passionate about – and have long done business in – Israel.”
