Dear participants, guests and organizers!
 

Let me, on behalf of the Embassy of the Hungary in Ukraine and me personally, welcome you to the opening of the V International Exhibition of Medical Tourism, SPA&Wellness - Healthcare Travel Expo.
Hungary participates in this professional event almost from the very beginning, involving fundamentally new exhibitors at its national stand.
If several years the treatment and rehabilitation in Hungary were presented mostly by balneological hotels and travel agencies, then this year two operators of medical tourism brought their proposals to Ukraine as well. These companies are: Euromed International and Euromedic Tourism, and among their partners there are famous university clinics of Budapest, Debrecen, Pecha, other well-known hospitals, as well as new medical centers, such as Duna Medical Center.
The demand for quality health services in Ukraine is growing and Hungary is one of the top providers of medical tourism. Ukrainian “health tourists” come to our country for orthopedic and neurosurgical treatment, to give birth, and even for vaccination. The extremely rich deposits of thermal water, numerous baths, climatic and speleotherapy resorts not only provide effective rehabilitation, but also a wonderful vacation and general health improvement.
The therapeutic tourism turned out to be the least vulnerable to the current Ukrainian crisis: while the overall tourist flow from Ukraine has decreased, the Ukrainians’ demand for the spa hotels in Hungary continued to grow in 2015.
We consider the Healthcare Travel Expo an excellent opportunity to present the healthcare and recreational resources of Hungary, created by the highly professional, reliable and creative team of organizers. No doubt that holding this exhibition and Hungary's participation will benefit the best health care of Ukrainians.
Wishing you success in the exhibition and sincere respect.

Dear exhibitors!
 

On behalf of Korea, our congratulations on the V International exhibition of medical tourism, SPA&Wellness - Healthcare Travel Expo, as the industry is actively developing medical tourism. Revenues from medical tourism in the world market in 2015 are fixed at more than 100 billion dollars and is expected to reach $ 150 billion in 2016.
Ukraine has a great potential of medical tourism through huge forests and wonderful human resources. Recently two Korean oriental doctors independently visited natural forest resorts in the Carpathians and Vinnitsa region. Doctors concluded that the resorts have a competitive advantage to attract Korean medical tourists, and they are going with a travel agency to invite Korean patients to Ukraine.
If information about the exhibition will be spread among Korean oriental physicians, exhibitors and visitors from Korea will be more aware about Ukraine and this will help in development of medical tourism in both countries.
The number of foreign medical tourists in South Korea increased annually and in 2014 amounted to 200 000 tourists, which is an increase of 30% over the previous year. According to the OECD, Korea ranked second in the world in health care facilities and equipment in the fourth and ninth medical services - in medical technology.
The Korean government recognized medical tourism as one of 17 new engines of growth and has pledged to improve the quality of services.
I sincerely hope that the industry of medical tourism in Ukraine and Eastern Europe will be developed with the help of the International Exhibition of Medical Tourism SPA&Wellness - Healthcare Travel Expo.

Today, we observe the formation and development of a new sphere of tourist services – medical tourism, which involves more and more continents and attracts more and more interested people from year to year.
During a short period of time, Poland has become an important centre of global medical tourism, and as of today, it occupies one of the places of honour among such market leading countries as Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Tourists come to us in order to receive dental services, and to use the services of the Polish plastic surgeons, orthopaedists, cardiac surgeons, specialists in aesthetic medicine and eye surgery, as well as for the purpose of rehabilitation.
The foreign tourists are attracted by the excellent quality of the procedures offered by the Polish clinics. Mostly these services attract the tourists from the East including those from Ukraine and Russia. The professionalism of the Polish doctors is another advantage, which the Polish sector of the medical tourism can be proud of. Implant surgeons, plastic and vascular surgeons, cardiologists, ophthalmologists and other specialists are the professionals of the highest category. More and more frequently, they are graduated from the prestigious western universities, train in the best clinics of the world and use innovative methods of treatment and the advanced medical equipment in their practice.
International Exhibition of Medical Tourism, SPA&Wellness – Healthcare Travel Expo is a great platform for sharing experiences, establishing business contacts and disseminating of information about the possibility of health improvement while travelling. I really hope that the knowledge received and the new business contacts will contribute to the development of international cooperation in the field of medical tourism. I wish success and prosperity to all participants of the Exhibition, and I invite to visit the Polish national stand which presents a number of the leading medical and rehabilitation centres.

Dear participants and guests of International Exhibition of Medical Tourism!

 

On behalf of the Embassy of the Czech Republic in Ukraine and on my own behalf let me welcome you to the V International Exhibition of medical tourism, SPA&Wellness - Healthcare Travel Expo!
Since the Middle Ages people tried to use the healing power of nature - mineral springs, miraculous therapeutic mud and peat, natural gas and climate. Combination of treatment, relaxation, high level gastronomy, sports and unique cultural events provides a comprehensive impact and leaves unforgettable impression.
There is no doubt that many of you know or visited the Karlovy Vary, which according to the legend was founded by Emperor Charles IV, when he hunted wild animals in forests surrounded by the valley approximately 1350 years ago. Then, having jumped from high cliff, gazelle (or deer) ran away from the emperor. Due to that fact that the animal drunk from
miraculous source which healed it, even after 650 years it treats many visitors of resorts.
At the end of the 18th century Czech resorts became so well-known that prominent personalities - governors and government officials, military leaders and artists, including Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Ludwig van Beethoven, Frederic Chopin, Sigmund Freud, Emperor Franz Josef I or Nikolai Gogol began to come here from around the world.
It is worthy of note that health resorts can be found all over the country - in more than 30 locations. Which one do you choose? The oldest resort in Central Europe Teplice or Marianske Lazne, Jáchymov, Teplice Podebrady, Yesenyk? Despite your decision, I can assure you that they always welcome you with warmth and hospitality!
