Second edition of India Medical Tourism Expo is being organized from 2nd – 4th June 2006 at Olympia 2, London, UK in association with High Commission of India, UK, BAPIO, India Tourism, UK, Indian Association of Tour Operators, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare & FIEO .

The first edition, India Medical tourism Expo 2005 was a first of its kind Exhibition to promote India as a healthcare destination. The Mega Event took inspiration from the fact that Medical Tourism has so far been relatively unexplored in India and it needs to be globally promoted as a tourist destination with low-cost and high-quality medical care. As expected this Exhibition was well received by the public in UK and received wide press coverage from BBC, CNBC, SKY News etc

The second edition will be bigger and far greater in scale with presence of alternative medicines & therapies for spiritual and mental healing It will attract the General Public in UK and Europe to discover India as a Global Health Destination.

Medical tourism is likely to be the next major foreign exchange earner for India as an increasing number of patients, unwilling to accept long queues & high costs in the western countries would be traveling to the country. The Government has introduced various policy measures to further encourage medical tourism. Tripartite synergy between Government, Hospitals and tour operators would do wonders in attracting foreign patients to India.
