Reed’s Shanghai Healthcare Show Spans 290,000 Sqm

May 25, 2015

Last week, Reed Exhibitions’ joint venture subsidiary, Reed Sinopharm, organised the 2015 Health Industry Summit (tHIS) for the first time at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (NECC) in Shanghai. The mega umbrella show spanned a total exhibition space of 290,000 m2 and drew 210,000 visitors from 150 countries and regions. The first day of tHIS alone reportedly attracted 100,000 visitors.

There were media reports of teething problems at the relatively new NECC venue. Visitors reportedly complained about chaotic organisation ranging from poor signage in the venue and parking lot, hour-long queues for food and beverage, inadequate connections for transportation and insufficient hotel accommodations.

Running from 15th to 18th May, the four-day show featured 6,800 exhibitors showcasing the latest in medical equipment and equipment manufacturing solutions, pharmaceutical formulations and ingredients, manufacturing technologies, natural health and nutrition products. Notable exhibitors included healthcare equipment giants such as GE, Siemens, Philips, Mindray, and United Imaging.

Reed Sinopharm confirmed tHIS will become an annual spring fixture in Shanghai’s exhibition calendar.
