May 25, 2015

This week, the 6th edition of Hong Kong International Medical Devices and Supplies Fair (Medical Fair) featured more than 250 exhibitors from 11 countries and regions. The three-day fair ran from 18th to 20th May at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) welcoming nearly 10,000 buyers.

Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and co-organised by the Hong Kong Medical and Healthcare Device Industries Association, this year’s Medical Fair featured two inaugural pavilions representing Canada and the Taiwan Medical and Biotech Industry Association. Ten sector-specific zones were also set up this year including: the Hospital Equipment zone, the Rehabilitation and Elderly Care zone, Household Medical Products, Medical Cosmetology, Medical Supplies and Disposable, Physiotherapy, Tech Exchange, Business of IP Zone, and the Building Technology and Hospital Furniture zone.

Benjamin Chau, HKTDC’s deputy executive director, said, “Buyers from Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and Vietnam recorded significant growth. It is an indication of Asia’s strong demand for medical supplies and services. An ageing population and increased health consciousness are also factors boosting the demand for healthcare equipment in the region.”
