Amaco Travel was established in 1995 when an opportunity was identified to combine Medical Professional Development Conferences with travel to unique locations, creating money can’t buy experiences. Our conferences have included site visits to overseas medical facilities, networking sessions with medical professionals overseas, as well as social advancement programs in underprivileged communities.
Since the establishment of Amaco Travel, we have developed and run conferences on all seven continents including Antarctica.
Our customers have enjoyed exotic experiences from the Kimberley in Australia to the Amazon River in South America; from the Silk Road and Yangtze River in China to Zanzibar and the Serengeti in East Africa; from St Petersburg and the Baltic states to Costa Rica and Panama in Central America. Not content to reuse old itineraries, we continue to explore the planet to identify the most interesting and emerging destinations in which to run conferences.
In 2010, Amaco formed a joint venture with Impact Organisation, a company with a long history of delivering very similar style conferences for the pharmacy profession and other corporate clients. With a very similar background and culture, the two businesses combined resources to provide participants with greater learning opportunities and an ever increasing range of unique travel experiences.
In July 2015, the Amaco business was purchased by Mathew Lazarow.
Mathew has almost 15 years experience running conference and incentive trips around the globe – including the last 5 years organising and managing all the Amaco conferences. The recent inclusion of Pharmacy Small Group Tours to the Amaco stable of overseas tours and events further enhances Amaco’s reputation amongst healthcare professionals and ensures that as a company we continue to deliver on our promise that with Amaco it is “not just a conference, it’s an experience”.
