Event Description

The WELL Conference for 2020 has been canceled. All conference registrations will be fully refunded.

IWBI is are considering all options for future events, including a virtual event and dates for 2021.


The WELL Conference will help you experience first-hand the energy, enthusiasm and expertise that’s coalescing around the idea that our buildings and communities, and everything in them, are fundamental to our health and happiness. This inaugural gathering will provide a deeper understanding of how design across every aspect – from place to policy to product choices – impacts our lives and our ability to live WELL at every turn.

The International Well Building Institute (IWBI) is tapping trusted thought leaders, thought-provoking new voices, innovators, integrated design thinkers and inspiring storytellers to create three days of awesome content.  You’ll have a chance to meet companies and corporate leaders who are bringing us the products and policy leadership that are helping us change the world. Come prepared to dive into rich experiences, collaborate with people from every corner of the movement, and leverage every tool in pursuit of health for everyone, everywhere.

The WELL Conference focuses on the health and wellness implications of the places and spaces where we spend our lives. We welcome anyone interested in participating in this conversation, including:

  • Designers / Architects / Consultants

  • Developers / Owners / Property Managers

  • Corporate Decision Makers across Finance, HR, Real Estate, Facilities

  • Workplace Wellness / Marketing / ESG and CSR leaders

  • Educators / Scientists / Researchers

  • Public Health Practitioners

  • Manufacturers / Suppliers / Service Providers

  • Engineers / Construction, Infrastructure and Technology Professionals

  • Students

While intentionally creating a conference experience that’s decidedly healthier and more fun overall, we’ll also push the boundaries of experiential learning, with topics including neuroscience and biophilia; design solutions aimed at improving health outcomes in any setting; workplace policies that support improved health and higher employee engagement; and leadership discussions on how we measure, manage and finance our progress. 

The WELL Conference aims to reset the bar for how we come together to advance the global culture of health.  This total wellness experience will include:    

  • Farm-to-table meals and healthy snacks    

  • Opportunities for morning wellness activities    

  • Sessions outside and rooms with great daylight    

  • Mindful moments throughout the day   

  • A schedule paced for connection and community      

  • A diverse gathering of colleagues and peers from around the globe and across cultures

  • Celebration, reflection and a whole lot more!
