Why go to EMTC 2010?

The medical travel industry is booming. But where? It is more important than ever to understand this growing marketplace, and ensure that you capitalise on the market’s untapped potential. 

The venue for EMTC 2010 is Italy where there’s significant potential for medical travel and healthcare is a strategic issue for the Italian nation.

The EMTC 2010 in Italy is the ideal platform to meet international partners and benefit from the latest thinking on medical travel.

The conference will bring to health care providers in Italy a unique chance to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the Italian healthcare system and to plan for the future, with the implementation of the European Union Directive on Patient Mobility.


Previous major congresses on Medical Travel and Health Tourism in Europe have attracted around 300 participants. There is good reason to expect increased take-up in 2010, based on the following market drivers:

  • US citizens will look to Medical Travel for high quality, high-end medicine at affordable prices. Europe needs to demonstrate to medical travel agencies that it can provide outstanding quality of treatment and healthcare facilities
  • As European legislation advances, with the Patient Mobility Directive, the rush has already begun to establish European networks, supported by appropriate marketing
  • Italy is a premier tourism destination in Europe. This, combined with competitive healthcare packages for medical tourists, should see Italy compete with other destinations in the medical travel market
