International Tourism Trade Fair
Improving one’s health is a growing reason to travel. Bathing in thermal springs, getting a medical check-up, asking for a second opinion, seeking out more advanced treatments, trying out innovative technologies, getting a better deal or resting at an assisted living facility are some of the travel options in health tourism, an industry that comprises both medical tourism and wellness tourism.
FITUR, as the leading tourism trade fair in Spain and well-known on the international stage, is turning its attention to health tourism and in 2017, from 18 to 22 January, it will launch the third edition of FITUR Health.
FITUR Health will boast an exceptional location within the event, Hall 8, next to the international tourism business sector.
FITUR Health will offer an outstanding platform for interested agents like hospitals and clinics, thermal resorts, tourism clusters and destinations, facilitators, specialized travel agencies, suppliers and healthcare tourism service companies, to promote health tourism.
During the days devoted to professionals, there will be a B2B workshop for exhibitors to network with a selection ofpurchasers invited from tourist sending countries and that represent medical opinion leaders, national healthcare organizations, providers, specialized international travel agencies and insurance companies.
FITUR Health will also feature a series of presentations and roundtables on trends, innovations and the keys to success in health tourism.
FITUR Health thus provides an opportunity for exhibitors to promote, reach agreements and expand in the area of health tourism, one that is unmatched in all of Europe. FITUR Health also offers an extraordinary opportunity for sponsors in the tourism or healthcare industries, both for the showcase it provides and for the number of visitors it attracts.
