Events

At the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), we know that design has the transformative power to impact and improve our health and well-being. Our spaces can be designed as vehicles to support our health, from lighting that aligns with our circadian rhythms to the integration of natural elements that reduce stress and boost morale. By placing health and well-being at the center of our design decisions, we can create spaces that are not only beautiful and functional but also good for the people who spend time in them.

Visit us at NeoCon in Chicago this June to learn more about WELL Certification and the WELL AP credential, network with our passionate community of wellness leaders and participate in WELL-focused programming.
