Asia's No. 1 medical and health care trade fair
Medical Fair Asia 2014 is Asia's most established trade fair focusing on equipment and supplies for the hospital, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical and rehabilitation sectors. This key event continues to serve as an important international platform for suppliers to showcase a multitude of cutting edge technologies, solutions, products and services – many of which will be launched in Asia for the first time.
Held in conjunction with Medical Manufacturing Asia 2014, Medical Fair Asia 2014 also explores current and future demographic trends, challenges and policies, and notably, the next wave of healthcare modernisation.
Asia's share of those aged 65 and above in the world population is projected to grow to 61% by 2050. Ageing in Asia will therefore increase the demand for quality healthcare products and services.
Poised to be Asia’s medical hub, Singapore will increase its healthcare spend by 6% annually to reach US$12.6 billion by 2015. To date, 13 medical centres in Singapore have obtained Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation. The nation is ranked among Asia’s top 5 medical travel health care destinations, 2nd in health and environment competitive landscape (IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook 2010) and the world's 4th best healthcare infrastructure (World Competitiveness Yearbook 2010, IMD).
The event has established its reputation with medical professionals since 1997 and continues to receive growing support and official endorsement from Singapore’s Ministry of Health as well as regional healthcare associations.
