The IMTJ Medical Travel Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in the medical travel, medical tourism and health tourism industry worldwide.

Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, LaingBuisson, the publisher of the International Medical Travel Journal, has taken the decision not to run the Awards in 2022. We will continue to monitor the status of medical travel and will make decisions around the next Awards and Summit accordingly.

Please visit the LaingBuisson events site to keep up to date with all of our events.

The awards celebrate innovation and excellence in the medical travel, medical tourism and health tourism industry. Unlike other awards in the sector, the IMTJ Awards are judged by an independent panel of medical travel experts, chaired by IMTJ Editor-in-Chief, Keith Pollard.

The winners of the IMTJ Medical Travel Awards 2020 were announced at an online ceremony that took place on September 23rd 2020. Congratulations to all winners, highly commended and finalists.
