Crikvenica International Health Tourism Conference is an international conference dedicated to health
Crikvenica was one of the first destinations in Croatia where health tourism started to develop back in the 19th century. This long and important tradition has always had the same basic goals: first-class healthcare services, continuous investment in quality in line with the latest trends, and the development of human resources.
The awareness of the timeless importance of health and well-being is a very important part of everyday life on the Crikvenica Riviera. One of the results of this is our health tourism conference, which was held for the first time in September 2013 on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of tourism in Crikvenica. Over the past few years, the Crikvenica International Health Tourism Conference (abbreviated as the CIHT Conference) has become a well-known event and gathered some of the world's foremost experts in health, tourism and business. The organisers are the Crikvenica Tourist Board and the Kvarner Health Tourism Cluster.
CIHT Conference contributes to the implementation of current theoretical knowledge, cognitions and trends to practice and emphasizes the strategic importance and the importance of the medical tourism development in Croatia which, thanks to a very favourable climate, preserved natural healing factors and a number of reputable health institutions, has a long tradition in health tourism.
This two-day conference gathers together respectable local and foreign lecturers and participants from the fields of medicine, tourism and economy, all with the aim to introduce the new trends in tourism and medicine.
