The first and only trade show for Spa and Wellness tourism in Central Europe, SPA-CE, welcomed Spa and Wellness providers and hosted buyers from 14 different countries at the eight edition of the show in Dolenjske Toplice, Slovenia. The yearly business event that will present new ideas for a relaxed and healthy way of living was held at Dolenjske Toplice Spa and Balnea Hotel**** Superior on the 17th of November 2016.
In scope of the event, organizers have again prepared also an interesting conference programme highlighted by a round table on a burning topic “On-line Vs Off line tour operators and global distribution systems and how do we cope with both”.
Majda Rozina Dolenc, Head of Slovenian Tourism Board Germany, stressed: “Medical Spa Expert Forum, in scope of SPA-CE 2016, is an excellent base for a breakthrough of medical tourist offer of Slovenia on the German market because of the complex business talks that must include specialized tourist service providers as well as specialized doctors and health insurance companies. In cooperation with Slovenian Spa Association we provide to the German market adequate presence in the offers of organizers of these trips, we are in talks with insurance companies but within SPA-CE, we’ve offered education and presentation of Slovenian Spas’ offer to a larger group of German doctors.”
Hosted buyers, many of them coming to Slovenia for the first time, conclude their SPA-CE experience with a fully hosted Fam Trip which confirmed the information received during One2One meetings and presented the Slovenia Spa and Wellness offer in full mode.
