Among the partners who regularly attend are the long-standing Premium partner Barcelona Medical Destination, together with other exhibitors including FIT Reisen, the Gremi Klinik from Albania, HTI – Health Tourism Industry and ESPA – European Spas Association.
It should also be noted that the EHTTA – European Historic Thermal Towns Association – is expanding its participation with numerous co-exhibitors and featuring an attractive events area for visitors. In addition to a thermal water tasting session, the association is hosting a Spa Cinema in order to attract visitors.
