Future-ready solutions at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA
In line with industry trends and global statistics pointing to Asia’s rapidly ageing population, aged care and technological innovations in the healthcare economy will be key themes at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020. The three-day exhibition is set to showcase more than 12,000 healthcare products and innovations for the hospital, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical and rehabilitation sectors from more than 1200 exhibitors from 60 countries and regions.
Highlights at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020
Community Care Pavilion focused on rehabilitation and prevention
The Asia–Pacific region is undergoing profound and rapid demographic changes, manifesting in a rapidly ageing population. One quarter of Asia’s population will be 60 years of age by 2050 and almost 50% of Singaporeans will be aged 65 years or older by this time.
Against this fast-changing demographic, the Community Care Pavilion is making a comeback, focusing on rehabilitative equipment, products and solutions, particularly for the elderly. The comprehensive platform will feature a wide-ranging suite of geriatric-related products and preventive healthcare solutions, as well as physiotherapy solutions, orthopaedic devices, robotic technology for mobility, assistive technology, smart fabrics and wearable technology.
Start-Up Park — featuring innovative maturing healthcare start-ups
The Start-Up Park provides a dedicated platform for innovative, maturing healthcare and medical start-up companies to network and meet industry professionals. The site will play a significant role as an enabler of the entrepreneurial ecosystem that encourages medical and health innovation in Singapore.
Thought leadership and knowledge-sharing programs
MEDICAL FAIR ASIA Medicine + Sports Conference
Returning for a third instalment, the one-day conference will bring together leading regional and international sports medicine and sports science experts, physiotherapists, professional athletes, sports technology specialists and visionaries for an interdisciplinary dialogue on innovative approaches in prevention, training, regeneration and rehabilitation.
2nd Paradigm Shifts in Healthcare Symposium — Prehabilitation in Community Health
After the positive reception of Paradigm Shifts in Healthcare Symposium in 2018, the second edition will continue discussions on ways to overcome challenges as healthcare models move beyond hospitals to communities. Over two half-days, this symposium will focus on how communities can help prepare and enhance an individual’s functional capacity for better surgical outcomes even when surgery is not imminent, with the aim of improving postoperative outcomes.
Co-location with MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA 2020 — 5th Manufacturing Processes for Medical Technology Exhibition and Conference
Synergistically co-located with MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020 is the 5th edition of MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA, which has gained momentum as the region’s leading exhibition for Asia’s medtech and medical manufacturing processes sectors. Jointly organised by Messe Düsseldorf Asia and Singapore Precision Engineering & Technology Association (SPETA), the exhibition will feature a robust 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.
Together, the two exhibitions represent the entire end-to-end value chain from medical manufacturing processes and machinery to finished products and components.
