The WELL Conference, launched this year by the International WELL Building Institute, American Society of Interior Designers, and Emerald (publisher of Healthcare Design), has been rescheduled to Aug. 16-19. The decision was made in response to the most recent information provided about COVID-19 from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, and after consultation and deliberation with community members.

The conference, originally planned for March 29-April 1, will still take place at the Fairmont Princess in Scottsdale, Ariz.

“We believe rescheduling our inaugural conference to the second half of the year is the best option at this time to ensure a successful event for attendees, speakers, and sponsors alike. Though there are no current government-mandated travel bans in the U.S., many participants are honoring travel restrictions implemented by their companies exercising prudent caution,” a statement reads.

The WELL team is working to keep the original schedule intact as much as possible and will provide updates on all developments as they come. For questions related to existing registrations, travel, hotel, schedule, etc., please visit The Well Conference FAQ webpage, or email
