Over 100 top companies to participate in Bangkok event

UAE, August 31, 2017

More than 100 international companies will showcase a full range of cutting-edge medical devices and services at the Medical Devices Asean (MDA) 2018, to be held in Bangkok, Thailand, next year.

The event, an international exhibition and congress on medical devices, technologies, services and general healthcare, will take place from July 11 to 13, 2018, at Hall 1, Impact Exhibition Center.

The participating companies will exhibit the latest surgery products, laboratory equipment, orthopaedic devices, orthotics and disability aids, imaging and diagnostics, radiotherapy, and general equipment and supplies, said a statement.

Thailand offers opportunities for medical companies looking to enter the Asian markets. The market size of medical equipment in Thailand is anticipated to expand by 10 per cent from THB48 billion ($1.44 billion) in 2016 to THB58 billion ($1.74 billion) in 2018, it said.

In 2015, imports of medical device increased 10.8 per cent and exports of medical device increased 8.5 per cent, reflecting the stable progress in Thailand’s healthcare sector.

Thailand’s medical device market has grown due to several factors. The rising number of medical tourists and the improvement of the living standards in Thailand, coupled with the government’s efforts to develop Thailand into a top medical destination, have led to improvement in this field.

Loy Joon How, general manager, Impact Exhibition Management Co., Ltd., said: “We are fully committed to creating the most comprehensive platform for medical devices, technologies, services and general healthcare industries, under the theme of ‘Building the Future of Healthcare’.”

“MDA is also featuring First-hand Innovative Technology – FIT Talk, where exhibitors can showcase their state-of-the-art innovation and live demonstrations,” he said.

“Visitors have the opportunity to operate the equipment and/or navigate systems, assisted by the service providers,” he added.

“In addition, the MDA Buyer Program offers business matching opportunities where exhibitors can connect with specially selected buyers, via pre-scheduled meetings,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
