Medical technology trade fairs get back on track

After almost all medical technology trade fairs were cancelled this year due to corona safety regulations, Medical Fair Asia 2020 is one of the first opportunities in Asia to present high-tech medical products and services to an international audience with a wide reach.

In recent weeks and months, the global pandemic has exposed weaknesses in health systems worldwide. The demand for smart, efficient and cost-effective high-tech solutions for prevention, diagnostics and therapy has never been greater than today. 

For this reason, global medical technology trade fairs are of immense importance. We see a growing demand for medical products, such as protective equipment and medical devices.

The pandemic has also become a catalyst for the health industry to introduce digital health technologies such as telemedicine, artificial intelligence (AI) and remote health monitoring.

This year a lot is different: MFA instead of MMA 

Singapore is a great place for companies from Europe and the US to enter the Asian market with their products. Why I am always very happy to do business in Singapore, I have reported here. https://www.ivam.de/blog/international-business/its-always-great-doing-business-in-singapore

Unfortunately, there will be no MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA this year. It is therefore a great chance that the topics and technologies can be integrated into the postponed Medical Fair Asia, so that the companies still have the opportunity this year to present their high-tech products to the Asian audience live on site.

The MEDICAL FAIR ASIA originally scheduled for September 9-11, 2020 will be postponed to the last quarter of the year: December 9-11, 2020. It is the region’s leading medical and healthcare trade fair and focuses on Hospital, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment & Supplies.

The “new normal”: protective measures help to trade safely

The organizer, Messe Düsseldorf Asia, is strongly committed to preventive and protective measures. The safety and security of exhibitors, visitors, partners and employees enjoys the highest priority.

The measures announced on site include

  • mandatory temperature control
  • contact tracing
  • on-site isolation facility - in the event of a suspected case
  • provision of hand disinfectants on entering and inside the exhibition halls
  • safe distance in queues and rest / dining areas
  • visitors and exhibitors are asked to wear a mask and to ensure good personal hygiene

On the following page, the organizer will continuously provide up-to-date information from the Ministry of Health, Ministry of Trade and Industry and the Singapore Tourism Board on the COVID-19 situation in Singapore: https://www.medicalfair-asia.com/faq.php
