Campaign in short

"Health Benefit" is a year round campaign that promotes excellence and innovation in health and tourism.

Tourism and health do not exclude each other - but they do not necessarily form a synergy!

The results of our surveys that we conducted in 2008 and 2014 in Austria with more than 1000 respondents form the basis of the campaign.

Motto

"Tourism of the future – added value for health"

Inspiration for campaign

Health and wellness tourism are boomed and offer great opportunities for both, providers and consumers. However, if wellness or health is written on "the package", that doesn't mean it's also included.

The lack of information related to sick people in tourism is often the reason for insecurity and cause for a "passive" life without holidays.

Goals of the campaign

Build bridges of trust between providers and consumers through interactive communication.

Promote communications that allows consumers to make independent and objective decisions about where and how a vacation is feasible in their condition.

FOR SICK PEOPLE

Maintaining independence and self-determination.

FOR PHYSICIANS AND CAREGIVERS

Extend health-promoting measures and gaining trust.

FOR THE FAMILY

Changes in everyday life to prevent exhaustion.

FOR TOURISM PROVIDERS

Improve of customer communication and expansion of their offer.

Agenda of the campaign

Overcrowded communication channels need new solution approach. Some of them are in front of you and ready to use!
