We are proud to announce that the 6th Edition of the European Health Tourism Industry Summit will take place in the European Parliament in Brussels, on Thursday 8 December 2022, from 13:00-15.00 CET.

It is an honour and privilege for us that the event will be hosted by the Member of the European Parliament MEP István Ujhelyi, Vice-Chair of the Committee on Transport and Tourism, Member of the Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, and Special Ambassador of the UNWTO. It will be a closed and by-invitation-only B2G event gathering public officials and industry experts to establish personal contacts over fruitful conversations about challenges and opportunities in building up destinations of health.

For many years, HTI events have gathered organizations and delegates from more than fifty countries, high-level public officials and professionals in medical, thermal and wellness tourism. The 2021 online edition brought together stakeholders devoted to reinforcing the development of Europe as a health destination and showcasing great examples of health tourism destinations. Once again, we are proud of hosting leaders of our European partners such as the European Spas Association (ESPA), European Historical Thermal Towns Association (EHTTA), European Association of Private Hospitals (UEHP) and other prominent organizations over a leadership networking session.
