    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, SEPTEMBER 20 - This autumn, 15 Greek businesses, including leading private hospitals, rehabilitation centers and hotels with spa facilities, will promote their services in a workshop in Moscow to increase their clientele and establish Greece as a medical tourism destination for Russians.

    As Greek Travel Pages (GTP) website reports today, this is the second workshop organized to showcase Greece as a medical and health tourism destination to the Russian market. The 2nd Greek Medical & Health Tourism Workshop will take place 30 October 2013 at the Park Hyatt Ararat Hotel in Moscow.

    Russian arrivals to Greece this year increased by 30%, exceeding 1.2 million visitors.
