For $125, you get full access to the conference, workshops and training and for $200, you get access to conference, workshops, training and feeding. 

Also, if you want to have a booth at the conference, the cost is $500 (includes conference, workshop, cocktail, training and feeding). Only six spaces available. If you are involved or interested in medical tourism, real estate, or development or are a medical practitioner, this summit is an excellent opportunity to network and learn.
