Industry News: MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2014 – 10th Edition Set To Be Biggest YetStrong Domestic and International Support Drive Show Growth
In just six months, Singapore will once again play host to MEDICAL FAIR ASIA, as it makes a much anticipated return on 9 to 11 September 2014 at Suntec Singapore. The 10th instalment of the international exhibition on Hospital, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment & Supplies continues its proud tradition of show-on-show growth, with an anticipated 25% increase in exhibitors from its 2012 edition, making it the largest MEDICAL FAIR ASIA trade event yet.
Extremely positive exhibitor response has seen a marked increase in space bookings received, which sees MEDICAL FAIR ASIA expand across two exhibition levels to meet the growing demand for floor space. Further driving this growth is the strong support MEDICAL FAIR ASIA receives in the international arena, with new and returning nations Italy, Spain, Hungary, Turkey and The Netherlands showing keen interest in joining a stellar line-up of country pavilions which already include Germany, Austria, France, UK, USA, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Japan and Malaysia.
Organised by Messe Dusseldorf Asia, MEDICAL FAIR ASIA is a salient platform that brings together all facets of the medical and healthcare industry for networking, sharing of best industry practices, as well as product, service and solutions development. Part of MEDICA – World Forum for Medicine, a global series of medical events, MEDICAL FAIR ASIA’s contribution and growing relevance to the region and its associated industries is further underlined by the endorsement and continued support it receives from the Ministry of Health Singapore, Singapore Tourism Board and the Singapore Exhibition and Convention Bureau as well as hospitals and medical associations all across Asia.
Complementing the industry-defining trade fair will be a feature-packed conference focused on breakthrough technologies in the many fields of medicine including Urology, Oncology, General Surgery, Nursing and Aesthetics. Medical experts from across the region will congregate at this conference as they look to share their wealth of knowledge and industry experience with participating delegates, who will gain exclusive insight into the latest pharmaceutical and technological developments during the course of the programme. Co-location of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA and MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA
MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA will return for its 2nd edition and run synergistically with MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2014. Focused on the medical technology and medical manufacturing sector, the trade fair is jointly organised by Messe Dusseldorf Asia and the Singapore Precision Engineering & Tooling Association (SPETA), and in collaboration with IE Singapore and SPRING Singapore.
The synergistic qualities of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2014 and MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2014 bode well for exhibitors and visitors alike as they gain access to a diverse mix of high quality products and services.
“MEDICAL FAIR ASIA’s growing importance in the region and beyond can be witnessed through the sustained success it has enjoyed with each new edition. As countries face rapidly ageing populations and longer life expectancies, the demand for quality healthcare is ever-present and demand will remain robust. MEDICAL FAIR ASIA and MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA play an integral role in providing a key platform for all industry players to converge at a focused forum, addressing their needs and meeting their demands for the latest and best offerings available in the market”, shared Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Dusseldorf Asia. ASEAN – a hotbed of growth opportunities
As the implementation of the ASEAN Economic Community in 2015 unfolds, ASEAN’s combined economy is expected to experience exponential growth, joining the ranks of China and India as a global economic powerhouse. Rising affluence, keen appreciation for quality healthcare and evolving demographics and lifestyle changes amongst the more than 600 million-strong population in the region is expected to spur the growth of ASEAN’s healthcare industry.
In Singapore alone, plans to add 3,700 hospital beds and recruit 20,000 healthcare workers were laid out as part of the country’s Healthcare 2020 Master Plan, further highlighting the strong growth potential of the industry in a rapidly advancing region, where governments have collectively identified healthcare as a priority sector for region-wide integration and development.
