Our Medical Travel Conference is a unique event focusing on the Medical Travel & Wellness Tourism Industry.

The Operations Abroad Worldwide Medical Travel Conference is the only Medical Travel Conference which is operated by the Pioneers of the Medical Travel Industry in the UK & the UK's longest established Medical Tourism Company, Operations Abroad Worldwide - who have treated over 60,000 patients through their network of 80 hospitals in 40 countries & have a superior level of experience gained over 19 years in the Medical Travel industry.


Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a focused Medical Travel & Wellness Conference where delegates can learn, engage, network & collaborate with a view to growing & improving the Global Healthcare & Wellness Industry.

Our Conference is a unique event focusing on Medical Tourism with a focus on Innovative Treatment Approaches which are changing the healthcare market, looking at how new technologies are advancing treatment results & how a combination of  innovative surgical approaches, medicine & technology are changing the global medical tourism industry.

The Wellness Tourism market is one of the biggest growing travel trends. The rapidly growing travel niche is expected to hit $680 billion by next year, according to the Global Wellness Summit. It's expanding 50 percent faster than the overall tourism industry so it's the perfect opportunity to attend our event and learn more about this growing sector.

A huge advantage of choosing our conference is that we organise the event ourselves - we don't rely on a ground handling agent so by attending the event you will meet truly international delegates from over 30 countries, as opposed to other events which are organised with the assistance of a ground handling agent and these events rely on the local economy and the end result commonly found at other events is that delegates attending are only meeting other delegates from the country where the event is hosted.

You wont experience this at our event - that's a fact!

Another advantage is that we have the longest experience of any company in the UK in the International Medical Travel & Healthcare market which has been acquired during our 19 years in the industry.

Our experience is in the real international patient market, dealing with patients & we know what works & what doesn't.

This is a unique level of expertise and first hand experience which we can share with you - whereas other events are mainly organised by marketing companies who have to rely on sourced data - so you can rest assured that by attending our event you will gain a unique insight into the real industry.
