Eszter Jopp was born and raised in Budapest (Hungary), then moved to Germany to take a degree in business studies. Today she lives and works in Potsdam (Germany).
After finishing her degree she returned to Hungary and started her career in a tax office. Whilst working on a market study on medical tourism in Hungary she identified the potential this market could offer. Then in 1993 she set up Medic Travel GmbH in Budapest which arranged aesthetic and laser eye surgery for German speaking patients in Hungary.
She then later enhanced her communication management skills at the Management Academy in Cologne (Germany). In 1998 she founded the brand BodyConture that stands for high quality aesthetic and laser eye surgery. In 2004 she was a consultant for the health portal myBody and only one year later she developed the internet platform Zahnklinik-Ungarn.de.
In 2006 she became the manageress of First Med Services GmbH which she established with other experts from the healthcare and internet industry. By doing so, she could consolidate the brand BodyConture and Zahnklinik-Ungarn under one roof. The next big milestone in Eszters Jopp´s success story was the takeover of the Swiss competitor DentalTravel GmbH (established in 1997). By this she underlined FirstMed Services GmbH status as the main provider of health tourism to Hungary.
Eszter Jopp is a sought-after health tourism expert throughout Europe, especially in the regions of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. She regularly holds lectures on trends and developments in the health tourism sector as well as often being contacted by the press and media on this subject.
