IMTEC was excellent, conference and exhibition were very well organised, and I especially like that it was more B2B than promotion oriented event. The conference itself was an additional bonus to exhibition, so needed for further development of health and medical tourism industry. Medical Tourism Cluster Croatia, Croatia
