Passport Health Attends Inaugural World Religious Travel Association Expo

BALTIMORE, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The first annual World Religious Travel Association (WRTA) Expo took place in Orlando, FL last week. The WRTA announced that 2009 will officially be the "Year of Faith Tourism", with a three-fold goal of: highlighting the new era of Faith Tourism; increasing awareness of the personal and communal benefits of faith tourism; and, contributing to the global economy.

Passport Health, the largest provider of travel medical services in the U.S. and member of the WRTA, attended this momentous event. "We are part of something historic," announced Fran Lessans, CEO of Passport Health and a panelist at the exposition. "We believe in the good that humans can do around the world. That is why we want to make sure that all faith travelers are properly immunized and educated before they leave."

Religious and international volunteer travels have remained constant-despite uncertain economic times. Short-term volunteer travelers are expected to increase by 30% in 2009. Long-term travelers who stay for over one year, are poised to increase 3%. "We want to send a strong message that faith tourism is no longer a niche but a full-blown industry," said Kevin J. Wright, founder and president of the WRTA. "More than 500 tourism organizations and travel professionals from over 30 countries attended the historic Expo. All are fully committed to the continued expansion of Faith Tourism, including WRTA member Passport Health."
