The upcoming staging of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA, International Exhibition on Hospital, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment & Supplies, continues its growth and will feature 1,000 exhibitors from 45 countries and 40% more exhibition space than at the previous event in 2014. The number of country pavilions will also increase, with the leading industrial nations of the EU, North America, China, Japan, Taiwan, South Korea as well as the ASEAN states Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand participating. Saudi Arabia and Turkey will take part for the first time. Southeast Asia’s leading trade fair for the medical sector will take place from August 31 – September 2, 2016 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center, Marina Bay Sands, in Singapore.

“South Korea as a fast-growing and high-demand economic region is in the focus of the international medical device industry and health care sector. The ten ASEAN states alone are home to some 625 million people and they continue investing in their medical care in order to overcome the lag with western standards. This is clearly reflected in the extremely positive development of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA. This trade fair succeeds in opening doors to these high-potential markets for both global players and innovative firms from the region,” stated Horst Giesen, Global Portfolio Director for the “World of MEDICA” at Messe Düsseldorf.

This economic region offers a particularly high potential for the segments healthcare IT, telemedicine, patient monitoring and digital applications that network and efficiently manage patient data. There is also constantly growing interest in prevention and rehabilitation care that focuses on largely retaining the self-determination of people affected. At MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2016 visitors can obtain an overview of current solutions and developments in these growth areas. The trade fair will dedicate a Special Show to the topic of rehabilitation care.

The first MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE ASIA will be held during MEDICAL FAIR ASIA on September 1, 2016. The event will focus on South East Asia’s booming market for sports and preventive medicine and will discuss the region’s health policy challenges. According to studies, this market segment is expected to grow by seven percent annually to reach a volume of US$ 3.85 billion by late 2019. At the same time, the region registers a dramatic rise in cardio-vascular diseases, in respiratory tract diseases and also in chronic diseases such as diabetes. At the Conference, sports physicians, health service providers, patients and physicians of other disciplines will meet with fitness trainers and industry experts in order to develop networks, learn about innovations and seek solutions for the current issues in the health care system. The agenda will cover issues such as the role of sports in prevention as well as the monitoring of vital data and physical performance data through miniature medical devices (wearables).
