The ‘2013 Thailand Medical & Wellness Trade and Media Familiarization Trip,’ scheduled for the 12th-18th August, 2013, is a chance for premier Thai healthcare providers to pair up with overseas medical tourism facilitators, traditional travel agencies, online medical travel portals, and journalists who engage in medical tourism, for in-depth briefings about each other’s products and services and for an array of networking functions.

Visiting buyers will be treated to presentations about the most popular areas of healthcare in Thailand for overseas medical travelers, namely, cosmetic/plastic surgery, fertility treatments, holistic/anti-aging care, and cell therapy & regenerative medicine, with proceedings taking place at the Centara Grand Hotel at Central World in Bangkok.

This year’s FAM Trip extends beyond the presentations and one-on-one meetings between buyers and sellers, as special educational outings are scheduled for both buyers and media to visit participating sellers’ hospitals, clinics, spas, and health resorts to experience first-hand a variety of popular medical & wellness services on offer in Thailand.

Participants will be indulged with medical screenings, dental checkups and treatments, Thai massage, and various skincare procedures not only in Bangkok, but also in medical travel hotspots - and renowned beach paradises - Hua Hin and Phuket.

A high-ranking public relations representative at says, “Thailand is one of the world’s leading medical tourism destinations, and as the industry continues to boom, the high-quality healthcare offerings in Thailand continue to increase as well. An interactive trade event like this is a great way to ensure that overseas medical tourism facilitators stay up-to-date with what Thailand has to offer.
