Between 12 and 14 September, the Master Convention Centre of the Hotel Recanto Cataratas de Foz do Iguaçu, in the State of Paraná, will host the celebration of a new edition of Termatalia under the slogan “The Energy of the Waters”. The objective of the International Fair of Thermal Tourism, Health and Wellness will be to act as a dynamizing agent of the health tourism sector at world-wide level, placing the main focus on the enhancement of natural resources such as water.
To this end, the Advisory Committee of Termatalia, made up of 20 experts in thermal and health tourism, has held a meeting to establish the professional actions related to both knowledge and business that will be developed in the “Thermatalia Week”. Those attending this meeting agreed on the value of the “Termatalia” brand as a reference point for thermal development, especially in Latin America, as well as the international projection that the fair has achieved in this continent, which will serve as an umbrella for Spanish companies, and especially Galician companies, that are committed to participating in the fair.
The schedule of the “Semana Termatalia” would be the following including professional actions from the 10th to the 15th of September (although the fair itself will be held on the 13th and 14th of September).
