2nd Malaysia International Healthcare Travel MIHTE 2013 Launch in Sunway Pyramid Convention Centre
Olla everyone, a couple of days back I was invited to attend and cover the Malaysia International Healthcare Travel event thanks to Caroline. Do you know what is Healthcare Travel all about? This is the second time this event was held. Following the success of the 1st Malaysia International Healthcare Travel Expo 2012 (1st MIHTE 2012), the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC) will once again organise the 2nd Malaysia International Healthcare Travel Expo 2013 (2nd MIHTE 2013).
2nd MIHTE 2013 provides opportunities for healthcare travel industry players to come together through an Expo and a Conference. The Expo is a platform to showcase your products and services to a targeted, like-minded audience. The Conference will provide your personnel with opportunities to learn about different facets of medical tourism from industry leaders, and to share information.
The event as a whole will present participants with an invaluable opportunity to find partners to create innovative packages to meet the needs of this fast growing industry. There will be ample social events to get to know industry players in an informal setting as well.
- To provide a platform for the creation of end-to-end healthcare travel packages.
- To create opportunities to connect with the right partner and strengthen existing ties.
- To showcase an array of innovations from medical science and technology, travel to aftercare.
Earlier that day, Dr Mary Wong Lai Lin the Chief Executive Officer Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (Malaysia) give us some overview and welcome note regards to the event.
