Dear participants and guests!
On behalf of LMT, I am happy to congratulate you all on the opening of the VIII International Medical Forum “Medicine Innovations – Health of the Nation”, VI International Medical Congress “The introduction of modern achievements of medical science in the Ukrainian health care practice”, International Dental Congress and VI International Exhibition of Medical Tourism!
The scope, the unquestionable authority of the organizers, the relevance of the topics covered at the Congress and the high competence of domestic and foreign speakers – these are the main components of success of the International Medical Forum. This is why more and more professionals come to our event each year; why the international participation expands and the number of scientifi c activities grows.
This year, the research institutes of the National Academy of Medical Sciences, departments of P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Bohomolets National Medical University, bodies of the Ministry of Health, medical associations and private companies have organized a record number of events – 80 conferences, symposia, seminars, round tables and workshops in total. I am confi dent professionals will give them their special attention.
It gives me great pleasure to note that the Forum is actively developing despite the diffi cult economic and political conditions in the country. This year it is hosting the International Dental Congress for the fi rst time, among the organizers of which are Ukrainian Dental Association, specialized dental associations, dental centres and other institutions.
The Forum is also a platform that creates an excellent opportunity for the manufacturers and suppliers to present their latest medical and dental equipment, materials, tools, supplies and pharmaceuticals to specialists, conclude favourable agreements and expand business ties. The format is the most mutually benefi cial for health professionals and businesses. This time, over 400 companies are taking part in the specialized international exhibitions MEDICAEXPO, PHARMAEXPO and DENTALEXPO, which is one-third more than last year.
The VI International Exhibition of Medical Tourism, SPA & Wellness – Healthcare Travel Expo, continues to hold a top position in the industry. Here specialists and experts, leading specialized clinics and enterprises of the industry from Ukraine and abroad can share experiences and fi nd customers.
I would like to express my gratitude for their eff orts to our long-standing partners, the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine and P.L. Shupyk National Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, since they, as the co-organizers, form the lion's share of the scientifi c and practical programme of the Forum and help to maintain its high level.
I am deeply grateful to public authorities for their constant active support of our events, and to co-organizers, professional associations and partners – for their invaluable assistance. Special thanks to the companies for their support and active participation in the exhibition and events!
So, I invite you all, dear friends, to the VIII International Medical Forum, VI International Medical Congress, International Dental Congress and VI International Exhibition of Medical Tourism! I wish you all new professional and business achievements.
