International Wellness Tourism expert Dr. Franz Linser to meet with Wellness industry

The EDB is inviting Dr. Franz Linser, Managing Director, Linser Hospitality, Austria, an internationally renowned wellness tourism expert to conduct a seminar and consultancy session to the Sri Lankan Wellness Tourism service sector.

This is part of a broad initiative aimed at promoting the Sri Lankan Wellness industry to gain more international recognition for the sector and promote the country as a destination for high quality wellness service.

The Wellness Tourism sector has been identified as one of the key sectors for development and promotion in the National Export Strategy [NES] and accordingly, a Plan of Action has been developed with key stakeholders.

It is a fact that Sri Lanka has a well-established medical system in both indigenous medicine, western health services and other alternative medical practices which make the country an ideal destination for medical travellers.

The sector has two strong professional bodies for both, Western and indigenous sectors. Sri Lanka offers a wide range of wellness services at the luxury Ayurveda resorts, Indigenous medicine hospitals, Spa and recreation centres and western hospitals.

The objective of this seminar is to make the industry aware of the trends in the EU for medical travellers, export opportunities for Sri Lankan Wellness services and, how Sri Lanka could tie up with Linser Hospitality to promote the country in the European region.

Dr. Linser is a world renowned wellness tourism expert, with more than twenty years experience in the luxury Wellness and Spa industry, a much sought-after expert in developing modern innovative health and wellness projects.

The seminar will be held on February 27 from 9 am to 12 noon at the EDB Auditorium.
