On April 24, PROMED will be hosting the 4th Annual Medical Travel Conference on Healthy Living and Retirement at Los Sueños Marriot Ocean and Golf Resort in Playa Herradura.

The Medical Travel Summit provides participants with an easygoing environment and creates opportunities to establish new enterprises. With more than 500 attendees from 15 countries, this event is the largest and most important Medical Tourism Health Summit in Latin America.

As a co-sponsor, the Central Pacific Chamber of Commerce has negotiated a special discount rate for its members and interested local parties to attend. For $125, you get full access to the conference, workshops and training and for $200, you get access to conference, workshops, training and feeding. 

Also, if you want to have a booth at the conference, the cost is $500 (includes conference, workshop, cocktail, training and feeding). Only six spaces available. If you are involved or interested in medical tourism, real estate, or development or are a medical practitioner, this summit is an excellent opportunity to network and learn. Sit in on the following talks, meet buyers and investors. 

1) Medical Tourism: A Development Opportunity for Latin America.
