It was the Philippine International Tourism Fair held at the Marco Polo Hotel in Cebu June 25-27, 2009. Contours attended to promote medical tourism specifically beauty tourism. We had a booth at the fair and other establishments as well such as travel agencies, hotels and resorts. Contours was the only medical facility in the fair.
In a seminar, I gave a talk on how Contours got into the business of medical tourism. I gave m personal experience on how the internet has shrunk the world. Most of my clients are not locals, mostly foreigners, balikbayans and OFW. Because of the webiste, they land on my site whenever they search for words such as liposuction Philippines, Vaser etc. Then they land on the website and inquire directly. I also discussed with them the potential of medical tourism in the country as our doctors are internationally trained and our standards are world class, we can competitively compete with other countries especially that the prices in other countries for such procedures are much more expensive than ours. My request is the coordination of travel agencies, hotels and resorts to facilitate possible clients in their travel, accommodations, transfers, possible tours that come along with their beauty holiday.
Medical tourism is another venue to promote the country internationally, to attract more visitors to come and see not only the beauty of the Philippines but also the talent and intelect of their doctors.
