MEDICAL TOURISM

The Medical Tourism market is growing, and is connected heavily to hospitality and other travel factors. While many businesses are committed to investing in marketing and branding, the medical tourism sector is still spending few dollars mostly on the wrong marketing channels. The outcome is clear.

We have vast experience in assessing the feasibility of destinations/hospitals/doctors in succeeding in this extremely competitive category. We excel in promoting destinations for Medical Tourism purposes, and we represent destinations promoting Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conferences and Events (MICE) in markets inside and outside the U.S.

Those who understand this unique market know the essential connection between the two categories.

Above all, we build our clients’ brands and make them known and desirable to their relevant target audiences.

We worked with some of the largest and best-known Healthcare, Travel and Hospitality brands in the US and abroad. We have developed successful brand positioning and programs for a diverse group of clients.

Among them:

RIC (Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago), Illinois Kaiser Permanente, California Merci Hospital in Des Moines, Iowa Open System Imaging, California Lasik Plus, Ohio Alexian Brothers Hospital, Illinois Swank Healthcare, Missouri Glaxo Smith Klein, South Africa Richardson Vicks, South Africa Malaysia Health Travel Council Turkish Ministry of Health

We have also helped national and state tourism organizations grow their constituencies and tourism revenue, including:

The Mexico Tourism Board Lisbon Convention Bureau Turismo de Lisboa British Tourism Authority Israel Ministry of Tourism Illinois Department of Tourism State of Iowa Tourism Division Satour, South African Tourism Turkish Tourism

And alongside we have helped hotel groups and specific hotels acquire and retain customers, including
Leading Hotels of the World; Preferred Hotels; Doubletree Hotels, Dan Hotels Group- Israel; Sheraton Hotel- Tel-Aviv, among others. Our transportation clients included United Airlines, Alitalia, Korean Air, Avis, and South African Railways.
