We all know the health and wellness industry has grown considerably, and not many countries are impacted as much as India. You may have noticed, the Indian government has embarked on a global campaign to raise awareness of Ayurveda and Yoga. People more than ever are embracing healthy lifestyle choices.
As people’s lifestyles are changing, there is an increased demand for wellness products. This projected growth has created an opportunity for the growth of existing businesses, and for the entry of new businesses. It is estimated that wellness products and services will generate more than three million jobs in India by 2015.
In light of this, the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry is embracing wellness with its first India International Wellness Expo May 15-17. The expo will showcase successful businesses – as well as highlight business opportunities – in the health, wellness, and fitness industries.
There will also be keynote speakers such as Carina Chatlani, the CEO of Body Bistro, during the three-day exhibition. A popular speaker about wellness, Chatlani will be speaking about Positioning Indian Wellness in the Global Market.
“Global consumers are motivated to travel to India for spiritual, medical, and wellness purposes, and all of this adds up to a commitment to their wellbeing,” said Chatlani. “This aspiration to live an ‘expansive elevated existence’ is front and center in people’s mindset. Their search has galvanized the seed of a Global Wellness Model to be activated.”
