MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2017, in its 8th edition, has an international participation that is expanding at each instalment.

We are excited to be leading our members to this biggest regional platform, to connect and create strong bonds with businesses from around the region and all over the world.” Also debuting at MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2017 is the European Union pavilion. Dr Michael Pulch, Ambassador, European Union Delegation to Singapore, said: “This presents an excellent opportunity for European companies specialising in healthcare and medical technologies. As Thailand is one of the leading Southeast Asian countries in the medical technologies industry, the participation of companies from the European Union at MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2017 will allow them to reach, connect and network with the right audience.”
Adding on, Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, said that with Thailand’s dynamic positioning as a leading medical and healthcare hub, which is being further enhanced as the country goes into full gear with Thailand 4.0, value creation and innovation will take centre stage. “On this note, MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2017 will focus on Rehabilitative Care and Connected Healthcare, such as digital healthcare equipment and solutions, and wearable technologies that are rapidly transforming the market.
