Wellness Tourism Association, is proud to present the Wellness Travel Survey. We’re asking travel advisors to speak on wellness travel, a growing and important segment in the travel industry. As a special thank you, one (1) of five (5) travel advisors will receive $50 gift certificates to Amazon.
The results of the survey will be released in the July issue of Recommend, and in a special Wellness Travel White Paper released on July 25. We will also be conducting a webinar based on the results with the Wellness Tourism Association and Travel Advisors who are experts in Wellness Travel on
