Sponsorship Opportunities


The global pandemic has changed the way we work, from the mental and physical health of employees to the available health care services and how we access them.

This forum will focus on the impacts of the global pandemic on health care and the opportunities afforded by the crisis to rethink current models of accessing care and supporting mental health and wellbeing in the workplace—whether that be an office, a manufacturer, or a tourist destination.

Join us to hear from leading industry experts as they discuss:

  • How the lessons learned from COVID-19 are impacting health care delivery and administration
  • How employers can reset the workplace from a physical as well as a mental health and safety perspective
  • How access to health care services and technologies are evolving to improve health outcomes

The forum will be held over two days:

Bundle pricing and single day tickets are available.

Session 1

Health and the New World of Work

At the onset of the pandemic many businesses responded by implementing work-from-home policies or made other significant operational changes to accommodate employees. As businesses consider what their post-pandemic policies will entail, they face new challenges and opportunities for supporting their workforce—including employee anxiety of the post-COVID period.

Employers will learn how to create a mental- and physical-health focused strategy for return-to-work that better support their employees, including a reduction of stigma surrounding mental health.
