Connecting Asia’s Healthcare Market

As the region’s leading medical products, services and technology exhibition and congress, Asia Health in Singapore is a vital stop for professionals within the industry. A global hub within healthcare in Asia, it will be third edition of Asia Health and the 6th edition of Medlab Asia Pacific, the leading medical laboratory show.


"The APAC clinical laboratory services market is estimated to register a CAGR of 5.0% and reach USD $53,044 by 2023 according to a report by,

says Group Exhibition Director Tom Coleman.

"With the APAC region estimated to be the fastest growing healthcare market, Asia Health and Medlab Asia Pacific is a key focus and is very important to our organisation.


Showcasing Innovation and Digitalisation

As medical technology grows ever more innovative, Asia Health’s Innovation Hub is the key area to see new ideas in action. With the latest Artificial Intelligence products on display, attendees can gain an understanding of machine learning in laboratory situations.


"Each year, we are able to witness how the medical laboratory and healthcare market has progressed with exhibitors showcasing the latest cutting-edge solutions and conference speakers revealing the latest medical techniques and processes,

says Tom.


With healthcare systems being complex, digitalisation will help organisations simplify and make streamline processes. Digitalisation in the healthcare industry will assist with constant monitoring and reporting of patient data that enables providers to identify and respond to patients’ needs more quickly.


This data also helps providers effectively communicate with suppliers to ensure they have an efficient inventory and drive preventative care as well as quality patient outcomes.


High tech medical solutions are playing an increasingly important role in oncology, from improved clinical detection to rapid decision making and treatment. Many of these new technologies are on display at Asia Health to show case the important potential in this rapidly growing area, tying in with the Oncology Conference that takes place at the same time.



Exhibition Highlights

Other CME conferences include Patient Safety & Quality Conference, Sterilisation & Decontamination Conference and Antimicrobial Resistance Conference, all highlighting the increasingly important areas in healthcare that threaten the progress made in universal healthcare to date.


Manufacturers offering PS solutions are showcasing their latest instruments and devices alongside the conference, showing how hospitals and other health care organisations can protect their patients from errors, injuries, accidents, and infections.


The Business Matchmaking portal returns for 2019 to match exhibiting suppliers will be matched with key buyers, both trade and clinical, based
on the interests and requirements of both parties involved. This advanced matchmaking considers both products interests and purchasing powers of the selected buyers to ensure that a high-profile line up of procurement heads are considered. Ultimately, the bespoke matches between exhibitors and buyers will be of the highest quality, ensuring suppliers/ manufacturers to meet and discuss valued business with exactly the right people for the best sales return.


“For procurement professionals, Asia health offers a complimentary Healthcare Supply Chain & Procurement Conference which will focus on the trends, challenges and opportunities regarding the impact of digitalisation on procurement in the healthcare sector and how to optimise supplier/ stakeholder outcomes through effective procurement strategies in the region,”

adds Tom.


As the healthcare and medtech sectors continue to grow with the increase of universal health coverage, coupled with major healthcare issues such as AMR, visitors to Singapore will be given ample opportunity to discuss solutions and strategies with colleagues facing similar challenges across the world.
