An international convention on medical and health tourism to be be held in Phuket next year is expected to generate US$10 million, according to the event’s organizer, SOS Medical Tourism Services.
The World Medical Health Tourism Conference (TWMHTC) 2009 will be held at the Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa from September 16 to 18 2009.
“Phuket is the ideal location to hold the conference because of it’s tourism and medical infrastructure and capacity to host international guests,” said Tom Callaghan of SOS Medical Tourism Services.
“TWMHTC 2009 is a great opportunity where key medical tourism industry drivers representing top healthcare companies and medical-travel associations will all be under one roof to network and do business,” said Ms Edubas, managing director of SOS Medical Tourism Services.
“The event is one of the initiatives in making Phuket the major destination for health and wellness in Thailand. The event will help open more doors for local investors into the international market, as well as for the global healthcare community to explore the possibilities of outsourcing medical treatments to Thailand,” she added.
