ESPA congress in Pomorie

ESPA congress in Pomorie MEET, the Bulgarian Union of Balneology and SPA Tourism and the Municipality of Pomorie organize the annual ESPA congress that will take place in Pomorie from May 14 to May 17 May, 2013. The congress is held under the auspices of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Bulgaria. It is the first time that Bulgaria hosts an annual congress of the European Spa Association – the organization, based in Brussels, comprising more than 20 European Union member states, developing in the fields of medical spa, spa and wellness. The Bulgarian Union of Balneology and Spa Tourism is a member of the European Spa Association from 2007. Spa, balneotherapy and wellness services are very well combined with other specific types of tourism, such as eco, rural, adventure, etc., provided our resorts are located in environmentally preserved ecological areas with great biodiversity and in close proximity to many cultural and historical sites. The event will be attended by the mayors of leading European spa municipalities (Germany, Portugal, Czech Republic, Hungary, Estonia, Lithuania, and Romania), representatives of European health insurance funds, pension companies and experts in the field. The business program of the forum in Pomorie includes the participation of 17 governors from Russia, where the interest for spa services is getting stronger. The senior administrators will meet mayors and managers of Bulgarian hotels to discuss the opportunities for spa and wellness programs for employees of large Russian industrial sites. It is also expected that Bulgarian hoteliers will speak with experts from private health funds in various European countries for joint spa and medical projects. In Pomorie, for instance, for three years already spa sites have been working with German private health insurance funds, and also there is interest from Austrian, Cypriot and others, which have funds for such holidays for their members. The forum will focus the attention on Bulgaria as a destination offering year-round, high-quality medical spa, spa and wellness products. With more than 600 exploited healing mineral water sources, our country stands a real chance of winning a place among the leaders on the European SPA map.
