* * The World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress is an annual conference.  The congress is made up of 3 cutting edge and innovative conferences: Healthcare Development Conference, World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, and Global Benefits Conference.  Speakers listed above are from our 2010 and 2009 Conferences on World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress.

The Healthcare Development Conference brings together decision makers from around the world and everyone contributes their time and resources to help make the conference a success.

Please note that no speakers, presenters or panelists are paid to attend, including keynote speakers. All speakers pay full registration fees, travel expenses and accommodations. Only in rare cases are a speakers fees waived. Speakers, presenters and panelists have been asked to refrain from promoting themselves and their businesses during presentations.

While we do understand that at times it may be necessary for a presenter to refer to his or her business by name, promotional efforts of any kind are considered a serious breach of the spirit of the conference.
