With dozens of medical tourism events around the world to choose from one event stands above all the rest. The 7th World Medical Tourism Congress which will be celebrated September 20 -24 at The Gaylord National Resort and convention center in Washington DC will gather thousands of leaders of international hospitals, health systems, specialty clinics, government organizations, medical tourism facilitators, insurance companies, US and multinational corporations and others to network, educate and collaborate.
The Medical Tourism Association with hundreds of members and tens of thousands of contacts worldwide is uniquely qualified to host the world’s largest medical tourism conference and exhibition. While others may claim to be global, one look at last year’s List of Participants tells you all you need to know…with buyers of healthcare in attendance representing governments, top insurance companies, and self-funded employers other conferences simply don’t measure up.
Don’t take our word for it, read what our sponsors have to say below…
If you attended in 2013, you were among hundreds of industry professionals who sat in on dozens of sessions and industry forums led by the experts in health and wellness travel. Most importantly, you had the opportunity to complete certification as a specialist in medical tourism.
Thought leadership and educational credibility are powerful tools to develop brand identity. Healthcare providers, consultants and other industry professionals demand a high caliber of valuable content, evidence-based learning and practical case studies to demonstrate positive outcomes. The WMTC is the one venue where visionaries, thought leaders, and experts from the four corners of the world gather to share insights and explore the possibilities of collaborating with each other.
“It is important for us as an organization to come to the congress to understand what is happening in the industry. On the educational side The MTA is doing a fantastic job with the certification process; that helps people who want to be part of the industry get a more formal education and better understand the industry… The event was fantastic, we topped it off with a night time helicopter ride around Las Vegas. We are looking forward to next year in Washington DC.” BUPA Global– Jose Quesada, Medical Director

“…The congress is very well organized, we have preset meetings with a lot of people and those meetings have happened as they were scheduled to happen. We have met many facilitators who send patients overseas and we have met with self-funded employers who are looking for savings and India can really come in big time there. The MTA creates a platform which allows the various stakeholders in the industry to come together and exchange views, look at opportunities that are there and see how they can work together… the MTA’s role is extremely important in creating that platform.” Fortis Healthcare – Anas Wajid, Director of Sales and Marketing
Where business Gets Done
Simply put, no other venue offers your organization the opportunity to meet with more potential business partners. With Industry Leadership Forums and Executive Summits such as The Medical Director Summit which will gather medical directors from top international hospitals and insurance companies or The Ministerial Summit which in 2013 seated leaders representing nearly 50 countries it is clear that The World Medical Tourism Congress stands alone in terms of global reach.
“The MTA’s Annual World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress is an incredible opportunity for companies like Nueterra and Nueterra Global Alliance (NGA)… We were able to present directly to almost 100 ministers of health and, in a lot of cases, these are people we would have never gotten in front of any other way… NGA had such a tremendous response to its message that when the time came for the round table, every single minister stood and lined up—to ask specific questions about their opportunities with us… Connection and networking will always be the greatest value with MTA. This is really the most valuable conduit of information and opportunity that we could ask for.” David Miller- President, Nueterra Global Alliance
…And the survey says… 8 out of 10 delegates surveyed gave us high marks for keynote presentations, educational content, exhibit hall experience, networking opportunities, and the overwhelming majority plan to return in 2014!!!
