Medical Port promotes medical travel in Portugal at Riyadh Travel Fair in Saudi Arabia

Following the success of the participation in the Saudi Medical Tourism Fair in November 2014, Medical Port decided to return to Saudi Arabia to be present at another event, this time dedicated to travel and tourism:

“Riyadh Travel Fair is the largest travel and tourism exhibition & congress attracting visitors and delegates from countries and regions that include Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Europe”, according to the organization.

Visitants were very receptive to Medical Port’s offerings and were interested in knowing more about the several medical travel options available in Portugal. There was a high interest in diverse areas such as surgery or physiotherapy and there was also a great interest in the country itself.

Portugal’s history and culture are still very associated with the Arabic presence from a few centuries back. The Arabic heritage is still present all around the country in monuments, food and even some Portuguese words are similar to Arabic. Medical Port wants the bond between Portugal and Saudi Arabia to be strengthened by bringing Saudi clients to Portugal to get to know the country and to be treated in world-class medical facilities, keeping their total privacy.

Medical Port’s presence at the fair had the goal to introduce to Arabic customers the offerings in medical travel in Portugal. The best private hospitals and clinics across the country have partnered with Medical Port to offer the best solutions in a wide range of medical treatments and procedures to those who would like to come to Portugal. These facilities are located in Lisbon – the capital – and Oporto, cities with international airports and daily flights to and from most European countries and other destinations across the world.
