Balneal tourism was present at this event, held in the new exhibition halls at Romexpo, with a stand where 15 members presented their offers for the summer season 2018, as well as offers for Easter celebrations. The interest in these programs was quite high, with visitors being given direct information by the representatives of the resorts.
Balneal Tourism Seminar
Also during the Tourism Fair was the seminar "Quality of services and qualification of human resources; where are trained proffesionals?” where some of the institutions (Academy for Economics, the Christian University Dimitrie Cantemir) and some schools for the training of the personnel in the field (the post-graduate school "Center for European Studies") presented their offers and the availability of collaboration, by including student practice programs for effective practice in balneal and spa facilities.
On the occasion of the seminar, a collaboration protocol was signed between OPTBR, the Amfiteatru Foundation and the National Authority for Quality Management of Medical Services, aiming to establish
a general framework of collaboration for the promotion of spa and health tourism, setting up concrete actions, occupations in the field, etc. There is also a certification / licensing action for the spa units as a working tool both for the recognition of the quality of the medical infrastructure and services as well as the preparation for entry into the European market, thus putting into practice the European Union Directive 23 of liberalization of circulation people and services, including balneal services.
