MEDICAL FAIR INDIA 2016, India's No. 1 Trade Fair for Hospitals, Health Centers and Clinics, continued its successful development: over 10,700 professional visitors participated in the event at the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Center in Mumbai. This marks a 34% increase compared to the previous event held in Mumbai (the event alternates between New Delhi and Mumbai). The positive economic situation of the country’s healthcare sector also resulted in strong exhibitor participation: 512 exhibitors from 16 countries presented their product innovations on about 64,500 square feet of exhibit space and unanimously praised the successful trade fair.

All important Indian companies were represented at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2016, including numerous market leaders from Asia. A total of 298 exhibitors were from countries other than India, reflecting the growing internationality of the event. In addition to India, the largest exhibitor nations were China, Malaysia and Taiwan. Companies from Germany, France, Great Britain, Italy, Japan, Korea, Turkey, the UAE and the U.S. also showcased their innovations. On the initiative of the Spectaris and ZVEI associations, Messe Düsseldorf organized an official joint stand as part of the International Trade Fair Program of the Federal Republic of Germany (AMP).

MEDICAL FAIR INDIA 2016 was organized by Messe Düsseldorf India Pvt. Ltd., the subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, renowned for MEDICA, the world’s leading international trade fair for the medical industry held annually in Düsseldorf.

Horst Giesen, Global Portfolio Director of Messe Düsseldorf’s “World of MEDICA” program, stated: "We did not expect such a volume of visitors up to the last day of the trade fair. The attendees were pleased with the new products, many of them from the high-tech sector. Given the extraordinary growth in the medical sector in one of the most populous countries in the world, we also anticipate a strong trade fair business in future that can also benefit our European exhibitors. MEDICAL FAIR INDIA and the globally leading trade fair MEDICA complement each other.”

Visitors included numerous top decision makers as well as renowned professionals such as Prof. Dr. Wali, Personal Doctor to the Indian President, Secretary General Anjan Bose and Dr. Jitendar Sharma, Director NHRC & Advisor to Chief Minister Andrah Pradesh.

The MEDICAL FAIR INDIA exhibits were complemented by an extensive supporting program. A high-caliber conference with the focal themes “Healthcare Branding, Marketing & Business Development” and “Innovating India with Healthcare Technology” offered decision makers from the clinic sector, medical professionals and health management dealers an ideal forum to obtain information on trends and to establish contacts.

Afzal Kamal, National Head of the leading professional journal for medical personnel in India, Medgate Today, honored particularly outstanding companies, hospitals and medical professionals during MEDICAL FAIR INDIA. The MT India Healthcare Award was presented to 32 participating Indian companies and professionals from various categories. Awards were given to the best physicians in the field of cardiac surgery, gynecology and oncology as well as to personnel from the healthcare sector and companies such as Hindustan Medical Devices, Ribbel International Ltd. and Spencer India Technologies Ltd.
