NOTE:
This Website is an EMVIO entity and will be evolving - right up until the start of the Conference - and even after the Conference.

...even if you cannot to attend the Conference

Even if you cannot manage to attend the Conference, exploring the Conference Website may prove to be an interesting, useful and enlightening undertaking for those seriously interested in Health Tourism.

It has quite a bit to say (and maybe teach) on the contemporary approach to Health Tourism Development, Further Development and Promotion - of Destinations and Providers.

For example, see:

You may, quite likely, come away with a new "practical vision" and perspective of Health Tourism - Contemporary Health Tourism.

And you may, quite likely, make every effort to attend, after all.

"a single provider does not make a destination"

(Constantine Constantinides, CEO, healthCare cybernetics)

The Conference

The Conference is about Greece as a Health Tourism Destination - and the Greek Health Tourism Providers.

The Conference is about expanding the Industry to address a broader Market.

The Conference is about bringing together the 8 Health-related Segments and the Sector-supporting Industries.

Health Tourism is about 14 - or more - "Stakeholder Industries".

See: Stakeholder Industries.

The Conference is about Health Tourism Business.


Conference Theme

“Health Tourism - develop what you have to create what will be”

The Thematic Sessions

...according to the Provisional Program

The Conference Sessions have been designed to address Health Tourism in terms of "Macro" (Industry) and "Micro" (Enterprise) Levels.

The main Thematic Sessions are:

The Aim of the Conference

The fundamental aim of the Conference is (through knowledge-imparting presentations and expert panel discussions) to:

The Conference Objectives

The Conference will:

Any relevant topics and issues not covered during the Conference (due to time constraints) will be addressed by the OnLine Pre-Conference Knowledge Resources made available to the registered Conference Attendees, in advance.


Why an "Integration" Conference?

If Health Tourism has a “chronic illness” this must be Destination (Ecosystem) Fragmentation (which basically translates as “inefficiency” - and non-competitiveness).

And the obvious cure for fragmentation is integration.

No one today doubts that an integrated Destination is the foundation on which to base sustainable and resilient development and promotion.


And what is integration all about?

The fundamental aim of Integration is to organize the Destination (and its stakeholders) in a way which spontaneously catalyzes efficiency and naturally encourages interaction, collaboration, alliance formation and development.

Bear in mind that "Integration" is one of the five components of Health Tourism Industry Shaping (the others being segmentation, administration, development and promotion).


But why the ht8 Approach?

Today we have come to understand that “Health Tourism” is the collective term for health-related services involving some travel.

Furthermore, these services logically fall under 8 Segments or groupings (hence “ht8”).

ht8 is all about creating a broader industry to address a wider market (meaning more business for all).

With the ht8 approach to Health Tourism Integration, Development and Promotion, every Tourism Destination can become a Health Tourism Destination – and every Tourist becomes a potential Health Tourist.

The issues to be addressed

The Conference has been designed based on deep understanding of all the diverse aspects of the Health Tourism Sector.

And the Conference aims to comprehensively and authoritatively cover all the practical and essential issues of relevance to the "supply side" Stakeholders.

This is reflected by the Conference Program and those who have been invited to speak.
