ITB Berlin Expands Medical Tourism Segment

Following ITB Berlin 2017’s successful Medical Tourism segment launch, growing demand into this sector has led to its relocation to a larger hall at this year’s edition, due to be held from March 07 – 11.

In Hall 21b, lectures and presentations are due to take place, from where visitors will be able to get detailed information on clinics, destinations and medical health insurance. Health Tourism Industry Conference (HTI) is this year’s official Medical Tourism Pavilion partner. HTI, which also organises additional conferences across Europe, is a medical congress specialist.

Taking place for the first time, the Medical Media Lunch will be held on March 07, followed by ITB Medical Night on March 09. According to the latest report by VISA and Oxford Economics, current global medical tourism industry turnover is around USD50 billion (EUR40.53 billion.) Over the next 10 years, growth is forecast to reach up to 25 percent per annum.
