IMTJ Summit delayed, but Awards still take place


In recent weeks, we have seen a resurgence of COVID-19 infection rates across Europe – in the UK, France, Spain, and Italy - and elsewhere in the world. The prospects for a return to “near normality” in travel and tourism and in medical travel, specifically, have been further delayed. Many staff in international patient departments remain furloughed or laid off; agencies and facilitators are seeing minimal patient throughput.

In the light of the above, we have taken the difficult, but, we believe the right decision to postpone the IMTJ Medical Travel Summit until 2021 when we aim to deliver a virtual conference early in the year and a face to face conference in Autumn 2021 in Madrid. Of course, these plans may be adjusted, depending on the spread of COVID-19. Details of the programme for the 2021 virtual conference and the date will be confirmed later this year.

IMTJ Medical Travel Forum and Awards Ceremony: taking place 23rd September

Despite the decision to postpone the Virtual Summit, we do want to help our clients in preparing their business for the recovery of medical travel and to celebrate those outstanding destinations and healthcare providers who have demonstrated their excellence in the IMTJ Medical Travel Awards 2020.

With this in mind, we have decided to run a morning online Medical Travel Forum with a few selected speakers followed by the live online Awards Ceremony on Wednesday 23rd September 2020. Existing Summit and Awards ticket holders will have their tickets transferred to the postponed Virtual Summit in Spring 2021 and also receive a complimentary ticket for next week’s event.

Tickets providing access to the Forum & Awards plus the postponed Virtual Summit are available from €150 and are on sale at .
