Strengthening its position as the region’s leading medical and healthcare exhibition, the 13th edition of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA is scheduled to take place from 9-11 December 2020 and will bring together a comprehensive range of equipment, technology and supplies for the hospital, diagnostic, pharmaceutical, medical and rehabilitation sectors; providing a one-stop marketplace to showcase the latest innovations and technologies.
Mirroring industry trends and global statistics, which point to Asia’s rapidly ageing population, and the increasing demand for digital healthcare brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, healthcare for the aged and technological innovations in the healthcare economy will be key themes at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020.
The Asia-Pacific region is undergoing profound and rapid population changes. All countries in Asia and the Pacific are in the process of ageing at an unprecedented pace, for instance a quarter of Asia’s population will be aged 60 years of age by 2050, while almost 50 percent of Singaporeans will be aged 65 years or older by the same time. Against this fast changing demographic, making a comeback with an enhanced focus on rehabilitative equipment, products and solutions, particularly for the aged, is the Community Care Pavilion—a comprehensive platform featuring a wide-ranging suite of geriatric-related products and preventive healthcare solutions, as well as rehabilitative equipment, physiotherapy solutions, orthopaedic devices, new robotic technology for mobility, assistive technology, to smart fabrics and wearable technology.
The Start-Up Park will once again provide a dedicated platform for innovative, maturing healthcare and medical start-up companies looking to find business partners, network and meet industry professionals. The Start-Up Park will play a significant role as an enabler of the entrepreneurial ecosystem that encourages medical and health innovation in Singapore, bringing together thought leaders and stakeholders who will share start-up experiences and best practices.
The Start-Up Podium®, a specially curated programme including a series of fireside chats and panel discussions will also cover trending topics such as the Progress of Healthcare and Life Sciences during the pandemic, How the pandemic changed the use of Blockchain, AI & Cloud in healthcare.
Interdisciplinary seminars covering relevant industry topics and trends will be held along side MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020
