The reason for the initiative

The stigmatization of sick and old people in tourism, as well as the failure of interdisciplinary communication, were „trigger“ for the research “Tourism of the future – benefit for health".

The inspiration for the initiative

Health and wellness tourism are boomed and offer great opportunities for both, providers and consumers, but the lack of information related to sick people in tourism is often the reason for insecurity and cause for a "passive" life without holidays.

Implementation of the initiative Health Benefit

The saturated communication channels and the demanding conditions for the protection of personal data prompted us to create a new communication solution for a simple implementation of our initiative:

The competition "Treasures of modern health" enables the implementation of booth scientific and economic aspects of the initiative.

The scientific part of the initiative, the research, consists of information gathering and processing. Filling out an on-line questionnaire is anonymous, voluntary and free of charge.

The economic part of the initiative unites different business concepts. The funding comes from the competition "Treasures of modern health" and the Convention Health Benefit.

To motivate the participants for the survey, we support our partners by organizing prize games.
