Berlin Premiere for Leading Health Tourism Convention

Berlin will host for the first time Europe’s largest and most important medical tourism convention. The European Medical Travel Conference 2012 (EMTC) (25 to 27 April) offers a unique platform for world renowned medical experts, who will discuss new developments in the medical travel and health industry.

“HealthCapital, the network of the Berlin and Brandenburg healthcare sector, and visitBerlin have succeeded in attracting the EMTC 2012 to the German capital. There cannot be any better venue for the convention than Berlin. Our metropolis combines the expert knowledge from the convention area with an excellent infrastructure for medical travel,” said Burkhard Kieker, CEO of visitBerlin, who will open the Conference, together with the EMTC organiser on 26 April. “The healthcare industry has long since also become a tourist magnet and has a large potential for the capital region.”

A programme with the expert knowledge of 60 international representatives of medical tourism awaits the around 400 EMTC conference participants. Apart from senior hospital managers from Germany, experts and decision-makers from Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Russia and USA will attend as guests in Berlin.
