The recent China Medical Innovation Forum 2017 in Suzhou attracted 1,268 participants and 47 top experts and industry leaders as keynote speakers. The two-day event covered trend topics including industrial policy, medical technological innovation, global market segmentation and access as well as innovative services, medical 3D technology, the Internet of Things and smart healthcare. The China Medical Innovation Forum 2017 was organized by Messe Düsseldorf (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. and China Service Alliance of Medical Device Innovation.

In addition to the keynote speeches, 12 innovation project road shows from Belgium, China, Sweden and the U.S. addressed topics such as cancer diagnosis and treatment, rapid molecular diagnosis, sample concentration technology, medical care and rhinitis treatment as well as urinary incontinence therapy, aneurysm and aortic dissection.

A new feature this year was the exhibition zone with more than 30 companies demonstrating their innovative technologies, products and services. The success of this new zone further proves that the China Medical Innovation Forum has become the most advanced and all-inclusive platform for medical innovation exchange in China.

Following industry and market demand closely and building upon the success of the previous two editions, the China Medical Innovation Forum will make significant enhancements for the 2018 staging. As an international supporter of the Forum, Messe Düsseldorf - organizer of the world’s largest medical trade fair MEDICA - has officially announced that the China Medical Innovation Forum will be held concurrently with Medical Fair China as a member of the “World of MEDICA” starting in 2018. Messe Düsseldorf is committed to transferring MEDICA’s successful expertise to China and integrating the latest expert perspectives, trade opportunities and market insights into the exhibition.

Medical Fair China 2018 and the China Medical Innovation Forum 2018 will be held from September 6 – 8, 2018 in the Suzhou International Expo Center. Medical Fair China 2018 is expected to attract some 300 exhibitors and 10,000 visitors on 107,600 square feet of exhibit space.

Driven by technological progress and a growing emphasis on health care, China’s medical device market sales experienced dramatic growth from RMB 17.9 billion in 2001 to RMB 308 billion in 2015, representing a 20% annual growth rate (Source: China Medical Pharmaceutical Material Association). China’s government policies for innovation strongly support companies to enhance R&D and production capacity for premium products. The current trend reveals huge potential for market demand, improved supervision and management, innovation-driven development and an increasing degree of industrial concentration, all of which benefit the rapid development of China’s medical device industry. Dr. Jiang Feng, President of the China Strategic Alliance of Medical Device Innovation and Vice President of the China Association for Medical Devices Industry, stated: “The China Medical Innovation Forum embodies our wish to promote China's translational medicine and technology finance. It provides a one-stop service platform for the growth of innovative enterprises, while inspiring China’s innovative medical device and translational medicine industries to move towards the future.”
