The congress is attended by managers and directors of medical and wellness properties – including medispas, spa resorts, thermal baths, thalasso resorts, wellness centres or holistic retreat destinations, in addition to doctors, therapists, practitioners or any professionals related to the medical and wellness fields.

Delegates will also get the opportunity to forge new relationships during various networking moments including a plush gala dinner.
