The Medical Tourism Association (MTA) is pleased to announce the
creation of a Spa and Wellness Tract at the 3rd Annual World Medical
Tourism and Global Healthcare Congress, September 22-24th, 2010 in Los
MTA, in response to the growing $2 trillion global wellness industry, has expanded its offering. A dedicated Spa and Wellness Tract will cover innovative topics presented by industry leaders in order to help bridge the gap between traditional healthcare and wellness. Topics include integrative medicine, corporate health, global spa trends, special interest products and investment opportunities. With a focus on education, networking and pre-arranged business meetings and social events, attendance is projected to be 2,000 delegates from 60 counties.
Camille Hoheb, Spa and Wellness Conference Chair explains, “There is an extraordinary opportunity to explore new models with new partnerships between spas, healthcare providers, insurance companies and employers. Consumers now perceive their well-being as a ‘need’ rather than a ‘want’ - and with corporations understanding the importance for a healthy workforce, wellness tourism is on the rise –and has not yet reached its potential.”
Individuals are encouraged to submit proposals that focus on the following categories: 1) Integrative Medicine 2) Spas and Corporate Health/Workplace Wellness 3) Economic Development 4) Market Segmentation/Branding 5) Insurance Opportunities 6) Special Interest (disabled, geriatric, retirement). The Spa and Wellness Tract call for papers closes July 20th 2010.
