MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2018, 12th International Exhibition on Hospital, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment & Supplies, will provide a platform for future ready technologies to revolutionize the medical sector. The 3-day exhibition is the region’s leading event for this industry and the next edition will be held from August 29 – 31, 2018 in Singapore.

A new feature at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2018 will be the FTR4H Pavilion, powered by MEDICA - the world’s leading medical event held in annually in Düsseldorf, Germany. The FTR4H Pavilion will be an international showcase presenting cutting-edge solutions driving digital and mobile healthcare (mobile apps, IoT, big data, hardware and software technology).

Another premiere at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2018 will be the Community Care Pavilion – a comprehensive platform focusing on medical innovations for the “silver generation” and home care solutions including geriatric medicine, rehabilitative equipment, mobility products using robotic technology, assistive technology as well as smart fabrics and wearable technology.

“The digital age of medicine is upon us. The healthcare landscape is changing fast and the growth opportunities driven by innovative healthcare technology, an ageing population, increasing chronic diseases and empowered consumers are immense, thus making new models of healthcare delivery inevitable. MEDICAL FAIR ASIA has always been about staying ahead of the curve and reflecting the needs of the region’s medical and healthcare sectors and it is our goal to ensure that the exhibition continues to be seen as a must-attend event,” commented Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of the trade fair organizer Messe Düsseldorf Asia.

The exhibits at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA will be complemented by the MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE. The one-day event will be a multidisciplinary exchange forum for sports medicine experts, healthcare professionals and athletes as well as representatives from the sporting goods, sports, fitness and healthcare industries.

The MEDICAL FAIR ASIA organizers expect the 2018 staging to be largest in the event’s twenty-year history, with 1,000 exhibitors from 50 nations and 20 country pavilions. The 12th edition will be held at a time when Southeast Asia’s healthcare market is expected to grow to S$510.7 billion by the end of 2017 and account for about 30% of global revenues, according to research firm Frost and Sullivan. Singapore itself is expected to invest more resources into healthcare - by 2030, almost one million Singaporeans will be over the age of 65 and elderly healthcare will rise tenfold over the next 15 years to more than S$66 billion annually. According to Global Market Insights, the worldwide IoT healthcare market is expected to exceed US$10 billion by 2024, while the global mHealth market is set to reach US$10.2 billion by 2018.

Held concurrently with MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2018 will be MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2018. With its 4th edition, it is well-established as the region’s leading specialist trade fair for Asia’s medtech and medical manufacturing processes sectors. Jointly organized by Messe Düsseldorf Asia and the Singapore Precision Engineering & Technology Association (SPETA), it will feature an extensive product range from upstream to downstream processes in the medtech sectors - from new materials, components, micro and nanotechnology, testing systems and services to substance and components for medical technology.
