Canary Medical Key will be holding its 2014 Medical Tourism Conference at Las Palmas Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, 19th June at 4.30 p.m.
The objective of this conference is to bring together the medical and tourism sectors to highlight the opportunities that Medical Tourism offer the Canary Islands, bearing in mind that the amount of people seeking healthcare abroad throughout the world is rising considerably year by year.
Medical Tourism is a global multibillion euro industry which has shown 30% growth over the past year (OECD). In addition, several sources confirm that the medical tourism tourist spends two to three times more than the average tourist during their stay.
We are convinced that the Canary Islands has the potential to become a prominent Medical Tourism destination on the international circuit as they are already one of the top tourist destinations in the world and, moreover, with a quality healthcare system (ranked 7th by WHO) and excellent medical professionals, we are set to succeed.
