The Purpuse of MIHTE 2012
Although growing in popularity and awareness, medical tourism in Malaysia is still somewhat of a hidden gem for the medical traveller. And it’s the gems of Malaysia’s healthcare system that the MHTC wants to focus on through the MIHTE 2012. MHTC sees itself as the ‘Clasp’ that identifies all the ‘Jewels’ – meaning all the best, most professional healthcare travel industry stakeholders. MHTC connects them with the strongest links so as to ensure a seamless healthcare travel experience for the client.
MIHTE 2012 consists of two parts; a Conference and an Expo. Through combining two elements, the MHTC provides excellent networking opportunities where medical tourism industry stakeholders can meet and share experiences in the healthcare travel industry, along with showcasing products and services to a targeted audience.
