Iranian medical centers, travel marketers to attend Oman fair

March 6, 2019

TEHRAN – A number of Iranian medical centers and travel marketers will take part at Oman’s upcoming International Medical Tourism Exhibition & Conference.

The event, which will be held at Muscat’s Al Falaj Hotel from April 22 to 24, will also host hospital groups and medical tourism organizations from Malaysia, Thailand, Germany and India, among other countries.

The interesting part of this International Medical Tourism Exhibition is more than being a B2B; it’s a B2C, which would bring in more footfalls of locals and expats, Muscat Daily reported.

Medical tourism made Iran an economic contribution of around $1.2 billion in the last Iranian calendar year 1396 (March 2017-March 2018), attracting around 300,000 medical tourists.

The country has set its goals to exceed its yearly medical travelers to around two million in [calendar year] 1404.
