Amazing Thailand- Health & Wellness showcase 2017
August 11th 2017
The first of its kind medical tourism conference was held by the tourism authority of Thailand in Bangkok, in association with Amazing Health & Wellness Showcase. Our patient coordinator Mel was invited as a buyer to represent IHP and network with a number of wellbeing and clinical centres to set up potential partnerships. Thailand has long been a haven for affordable medical treatments that can be combined with a holiday and this year’s theme was “Thailand a Paradise for Longevity”. Set over 1 day this jam-packed convention showcased 45 health and wellness providers from all different categories including; regenerative & anti- aging, cosmetic surgery, facial rejuvenation, dental, cell therapy, health check-up labs and medical spas. An opening ceremony was formally introduced early morning whereby a welcome speech by the Thai Authority of tourism was presented, followed by a group photo, product briefing, lunch, business matching meeting and a reception dinner. As arranged by the Thai tourism authority Mel was given the opportunity over the next following days to visit a few of the hospitals and medical centre’s in and around Bangkok for site inspections. The areas of healthcare included, IVF, fertility and Oncology units at the Bangkok hospital. Cosmetic surgery and wellbeing was based at the Apex Medical Centre, through which Mel had the chance to undertake a few procedures herself, constituting a vitamin drip which was part of a wellbeing package and entering a subzero ice lab. As part of her trip, a final day was organized on behalf of Amazing Health & Wellness Showcase to explore the wonderful sights of Bangkok. She visited the Wat Pho temple, floating market (Dam Noen Sa Duak), royal gardens finished with a wonderful cruise dinner on the Chao Phraya river. On her arrival home, when asked if she would return back to Thailand upon her experience we got a big thumbs up!
