International Conference for Thermal Spa Tourism


International Conference for Thermal Spa Tourism

On 9, 10 & 11 October 2014, Thermae Sylla Spa & Wellness hotel is proudly hosting the International Conference Investigating the Prospects of Developing Thermal Spa Tourism.

The Conference is triggered by Directive 2011/24/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 on the application of patients' rights in cross-border healthcare and organized by the Organization of Greek Thermal Businesses, the Municipality of Istiaia-Edipsos, the World Thermalism Organization and the World Federation of Hydrotherapy and Climatotherapy. To underline the importance of Thermal Spa Tourism, organizers have invited the Greek Minister of Tourism, Olga Kefalogianni, to master the opening ceremony.

Discussions will refer to the history and culture in relation to spa towns and thermal springs, as well as the infrastructure in the field of thermal spa tourism. What's more, the conference attendees also plan to present their program for the development of new targets and innovative actions that will lead to the sustainable development of Thermalism in Greece.

Further to the growth of Thermalism, this conference will also be the starting point of the 1st International Meeting about the Action “In the footsteps of the Romans”, which is a program launched by ESPA and involves the co-operation of 11 members from 8 countries. Through this action guidelines for tourism destinations are to be set. Moreover, a common sign for Spas of Greek and Roman origin is going to be discussed, making the respective towns more appealing to the international market.

Last but not least, we'd also like to note that attendance to the conference is free for every one active in the field of Thermal Springs and Thermalism.

This Conference is a remarkable effort for enhanced knowledge and action in the field of Therapeutic Tourism and a good chance to further make these divine gifts accessible to a wider public.

So, if you share the same dream...just be there!
