An Unprecedented Event

With 20,000+ visitors participating in our events over the last decade it’s time to disrupt the medical travel and healthcare ecosystem at an unprecedented level. That is why we are excited to announce that the  World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, organized by HEALTHCARE ЯEVOLUTION®, is headed to Abu Dhabi. In partnership with Abu Dhabi Medical Tourism, a joint venture between Abu Dhabi Department of Health and Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism, we have moved our global conference to Abu Dhabi for the next ten years. This is part of a much larger initiative and ten-year agreement between Abu Dhabi and the Medical Tourism Association and Global Healthcare Resources to establish Abu Dhabi as one of the most trusted destinations in medical tourism and to establish B2B and B2G relationships between Abu Dhabi and the world in medical travel and healthcare. Abu Dhabi is investing significantly in its healthcare ecosystem and is looking for partners from around the globe to become a part of it. We will be rolling out our largest and most “vetted” hosted buyers program ever with the support and backing of the Abu Dhabi government. This event will bring together the leaders from healthcare, insurance, technology, pharma and medical equipment and supply from over 100 countries.
