Well-Being Travel Conference 2012

Well-Being Travel Conference 2012

Registration has opened for the Well-Being Travel Conference 2012 taking place on 19th-21st June 2012 at The Phoenician luxury resort in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA – and an early bird registration rate is available until 31st January 2012. The three-day event aims to merge the health, wellness and medical industries with travel sellers worldwide. For further details, see well-beingtravelconference.com.

Participants from around the world are expected to attend, including key representatives from medical facilities, hospitals, dental facilities, spa/wellness facilities, insurance companies, tourist boards, travel agencies, and travel providers (including hotels and resorts, airlines, tour operators, cruise lines, car rental companies and ancillary travel services).

“There are a variety of medical travel events being offered in the marketplace today, but none of them has yet provided a solution for a strong distribution system that effectively reaches consumers,” said Anne Marie Moebes, Executive Vice President of Well-Being Travel. “That system must include travel sellers who are already booking all types of travel for their dedicated clients; destinations who want to promote their countries to medical travellers; hospitals and doctors who provide the procedures and pre/post medical care; wellness practitioners who administer alternative treatments; and travel industry suppliers who need to understand what products and services this special market segment needs. The Well-Being Travel Conference 2012 brings together all the key players for the greatest benefit of patient travellers.”

The event will explore medical and wellness tourism opportunities and set a direction for the future of this specialty market. Speakers from the world’s best health and travel organisations will educate and motivate on topics such as:

•               Marketing and sales strategies to effectively reach consumers

•               Setting global accreditation standards

•               How Ministries of Health and Ministries of Tourism can work together to boost the economy

•               Insights from actual patient travellers

•               Future of wellness and medical travel product innovations

•               Growth in preventive wellness treatments abroad

•               Trends in employee health benefits programmes
