Healthcare to meet technology at the 12th Medical Fair Asia in August 2018


The 12th Medical Fair Asia is set to happen on the 29th to 31st August 2018 in Singapore. The fair is a platform for both drivers and enablers to showcase the latest life-saving technologies.

The 3-day exhibition is the region’s leading event for all those involved in medical and healthcare. Visitor will see technology come alive with products and solutions with far-reaching implications for delivery of care for the future.

At the forefront of Medical Fair Asia 2018 is the FTR4H Pavilion which us powered by Medica, the world’s leading medical event held in Germany – an international showcase aimed at driving the digital health ecosystem that explores the effects of digital transformation (mobile, IoT, big data) to the healthcare industry. From new mobile apps, hardware and software technology, the inaugural FTR4H Pavilion is where healthcare meets technology.

There is also the inaugural Community Care Pavilion – a comprehensive platform focused on medical solutions for the silver generation which will include a full suite of geriatric medicine, products and solutions such as rehabilitative equipment, mobility products using robotic technology, assistive technology to smart fabrics and wearable technology.

Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, said: “The digital age of medicine is upon us. The healthcare landscape is changing exponentially 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,” he added.

Medical Fair Asia 2018 is highly-anticipated to be the largest edition in the twenty-year history of the trade exhibition, with 1,000 exhibitors from 50 countries and 20 national pavilions.

The 12th edition comes against a healthy backdrop where Southeast Asia’s healthcare market is expected to grow to S$510.7 billion by the end of 2017, and is predicted to corner close to 30% of global revenues, according to research firm, Frost and Sullivan.

It remains one of the fastest growing regions globally. On the domestic front, Singapore is expected to inject 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. While on the global digital healthcare front, according to Global Market Insights, the global 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.

Beyond the stellar line-up of exhibitors and technologies, Medical Fair asia also serves as a centre of knowledge for industry professionals to exchange ideas and share insights. The Medicine + Sports Conference is set to return for its second edition. The one-day conference is a multidisciplinary exchange forum where participants learn, network, and engage with those passionate about science and sports medicine. The event brings together sports medicine experts, healthcare professionals, athletes and sport techies, and those from sporting goods, sports, and fitness and healthcare industries.
