The HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair (Medical Fair) will take place at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) from 14 to 16 May. Organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and co-organised by the Hong Kong Medical and Healthcare Device Industries Association (HKMHDIA), the 10th edition will gather over 280 exhibitors from 8 countries and regions, showcasing the latest medical devices and technologies, medical supplies as well as healthcare products. In 2018, the fair attracted more than 11,500 buyers from 70 countries and regions.
Specialist Zones for Easy Sourcing
The fair will feature six specialist zones to facilitate buyers’ sourcing needs. Ageing populations and increased health awareness continue to boost the demands for medical products. The World of Health & Wellness presents lifestyle, cosmetology and fitness products, as well as functional foods and health supplements.
The Rehabilitation and Elderly Care zone showcases products and services tailored to elderly care and rehabilitation. A Hong Kong exhibitor has developed a wandering prevention system, which will notify the caregiver or family member immediately if the elderly with dementia run away from home unexpectedly. This helps ease the pressure on family members or caregivers.
The zone also hosts exhibitors serving not only the silver market but also the younger market prone to sports injuries, including mobility aids like wheel chairs, orthopaedic equipment, monitoring devices, and more. Another highlight zone, the Medical Supplies and Disposables zone provides such medical supplies as antiseptics, alcohol and medical gloves while the Hospital Equipment zone gathers ultrasound, other imaging equipment, anesthetic equipment and surgical instruments.
Building Technology and Hospital Furniture zone displays hospital construction and design service.
Tech Exchange and Startup Zones to Showcase Innovation
To help start-ups gain exposure and meet potential investors, the fair once again featured the Startup zone, where cutting-edge medical products and ideas will be presented by start-ups. The Tech Exchange zone gathers a number of higher education institutions, displaying their latest innovations. It offers matching opportunities for buyers and exhibitors to transform concepts to be applicable.
Concurrent Hospital Authority Convention
The Hospital Authority Convention 2019 (14-15 May), another influential event for medical professionals in the Asia Pacific region, will be held on the first two days of the Medical Fair at the HKCEC, creating strong synergy with the fair. Over 5,000 delegates are expected to attend, with some 90 distinguished overseas and local speakers to share their research studies and insights, as well as interact with delegates.
