MEDICAL FESTIVAL ASIA: New all-encompassing ecosystem comprising events for the region’s medical and healthcare sector

Medical Festival Asia, a 10-day online event for the medical and healthcare sector will take place from the 9 to 18 December 2020. The Festival will include four pillar components, a trade marketplace with an online exhibition –MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020 Digital Edition, thought-leadership conferences, an awards ceremony recognising the best healthcare companies, and knowledge-sharing seminars and technical presentations.

To be held biennially, Medical Festival Asia is a concept by Messe Düsseldorf Asia and GlobalHealth Asia-Pacific(GHAPAC), and will serve the region’s industry and medical professionals, medical and healthcare establishments, care services, academia and education, and other auxiliary services in providing a stimulating platform for the industry to connect and conduct business, and share best practices.

For Messe Düsseldorf Asia, organiser of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA, which recently announced its move to a digital edition for 2020, the all-encompassing concept of a festival has been an idea a long time in the making. The launch of Medical Festival Asia as a one-stop platform offering a multitude of activities represents a tailored approach in expanding the profile of the exhibition beyond a sourcing platform

Ms Daphne Yeo, Senior Project Manager for MEDICAL FAIR ASIA, Messe Düsseldorf Asia, said: “The trade fair component represents our international expertise in organising exhibitions under the global network of MEDICAlliance while Medical Festival Asia communicates the leading role of our trade fair portfolio and 23-year history, in creating a marketplace spanning end-to-end of the healthcare and medical ecosystem in this region.”

For GHAPAC, a leading healthcare and medical tourism platform, Medical Festival Asia pave the way for more global and cross-industry collaborations, which will, in turn, grow the stature of healthcare providers across the region. On co-creating, a festival-like event for the B2B landscape, Varun Panjwani, Chief Executive Officer, GHAPAC, said: “The Asia-Pacific region has seen an increase in demand for healthcare services, with the population and economic dynamics spurring incredible levels of activity. Medical Festival Asia will support the ecosystem growth and bring the industry together under one roof.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Andrew Phua, Executive Director, Exhibitions and Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board, said: MEDICAL FAIR ASIA is a key highlight in Singapore’s business events calendar. As our MICE industry weathers current challenges, Messe Düsseldorf Asia and GHAPAC’s initiative to launch an umbrella event such as Medical Festival Asia demonstrates both innovation and adaptability. As a preferred destination for MICE events, Singapore remains focused on helping the MICE sector innovate and meet evolving customer needs so as to emerge stronger from COVID-19. We look forward to supporting Medical Festival Asia, and are confident that the event will be a success.”
