IMTJ Medical Travel Summit 2018


There are many conferences and congresses that have grown up around the industry; most have failed to deliver the content that delegates want and to address the major issues that face the industry.

IMTJ 2018 promises you...

  • GREAT speakers. We handpick our speakers. People who have true insight and knowledge AND who can get their message across to a multinational conference audience. Promotional presentations are BANNED!
  • GREAT content. We focus on the real issues facing the industry. We deliver content that is of VALUE to those who want to grow their medical tourism business.
  • GREAT timing, It’s run by a bunch of Brits. We invented Big Ben. Our sessions don’t overrun. Lunch will take place at lunchtime… not at tea time!
  • GREAT company. Plenty of opportunities to network, set up one to one meetings and to participate in the B2B Meetings in the Networking Lounge
  • GREAT location. The capital of Greece and one of the oldest cities in the world, Athens is a fascinating destination where ancient landmarks jostle with bustling neighbourhoods.
