IMTJ Medical Travel Summit 2017 – challenges in the field of health tourism

The IMTJ Medical Travel Summit takes place on April 24th – 27th, 2017, at the Milenij Hotel in Opatija, Croatia. The IMTJ Summit is a high level event aimed at senior decision makers involved in the medical tourism and international patient market. The International Medical Travel Journal (IMTJ) provides insight into the medical travel and medical tourism sector. IMTJ was established in 2007 in response to the increasing interest in medical travel and health tourism. It embraces many of the themes that challenge healthcare providers across the world – insurance, accreditation, marketing and promotion, quality, patient safety, levels of care and experience in treating international patients.

The internationalisation of healthcare through health tourism is at the heart of IMTJ. Patients are becoming healthcare consumers and in many countries, patient choice is being extended to surgery and treatment provided by international hospitals and clinics. By sharing expertise, knowledge, and views about the health travel industry, IMTJ can help to ensure that patient expectations are met, and that the industry maintains a high reputation.

Co-located with the IMTJ Summit, will be the IMTJ Awards Dinner, the B2B Meetings and the IMTJ Marketplace, a medical tourism exhibition, which will run throughout the Summit. The IMTJ Medical Travel Summit brings together the best people in the sector to share their knowledge and experience and ensure the long term development of this industry. The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards celebrate the success of the leading players in medical tourism. The Awards ceremony and dinner will take place on the evening of April 26th 2017 at the Royal Hall in the Design Hotel Royal, Opatija. B2B Meetings in the Networking Lounge is open to companies who wish to host B2B networking meetings during the course of the IMTJ Medical Travel Summit. The IMTJ Marketplace provides a great opportunity for exhibitors to showcase their services and meet new customers.

In 2016 in Madrid and 2015 in London, IMTJ proved that it’s possible to deliver a medical travel event that delivers great value to delegates, sponsors and exhibitors. In 2017 in Opatija, IMTJ continues to deliver great speakers, people who have true insight and knowledge and who can get their message across to a multinational conference audience; great content that focuses on the real issues facing the medical tourism industry; great company with plenty of opportunities to network, set up one to one meetings and to participate in the B2B Meetings in the Networking Lounge; and great location in Opatija on the Adriatic coast, within the Kvarner region.
