This event was first held by the national local government agencies in 2018 to globalize the medical tourism and healthcare industry in Seongnam-si.

On the first day of the event, Seongnam Mayor Eun Su-mi will declare the opening at 10 am, and there will be medical tourism/healthcare online PR center, business conference, conference (symposium), and citizen health lectures for four days.

The online PR hall will be decorated with a medical tourism exhibition and a healthcare industry exhibition. You can see the advanced medical devices, virtual reality (VR) medical practice equipment, and quarantine supplies of 60 companies in Seongnam region at a glance.

The sales channel will be pioneered by conducting marketing activities targeting 80 buyers from more than 10 countries, including Russia, CIS, Japan, and Southeast Asia.

The business conference will be conducted by performing export consultation by Korean companies meeting overseas buyers on screen through the video conference system at 1st floor Event Hall of the Tancheon Sports Complex Sports Hall.

The city will provide equipment and interpreters to companies participating in the conference, and more than 80 overseas buyers who will attend the video conference will be supported by local KOTRA offices.

Academic conferences dealing with business issues related to medical tourism and healthcare will also be held.

Fourteen experts from Korea and overseas will be speaking on various topics, starting from Mayor Eun Su-mi on "COVID-19 situation in Seongnam and its response" to Prof. Nieland of York University in UK on "Alternative to medical tourism after the world stopped and new directions," Prof. Jin Ki-nam of Yonsei University on "COVID-19 pandemic and medical tourism in Seongnam-si," Rep.

Also, health lectures will be held for citizens. They will be able to see four classes including "Mind touch for contracted mind by COVID" by Rep. Kim Chang-ok from Human Company and exercise taught by physical therapist.

Seongnam Mayor Eun Su-mi said, "Seongnam has 1,611 medical institutions and 14,576 medical personnel, and equipped with pharmaceuticals, bios, medical devices, and healthcare infrastructure. We will publicize Seongnam's resources to the world through Seongnam International Medical Tourism Convention, and reborn as a 'people-centered world high-tech medical technology city' that sees the future of Korea first."
