Life Science & Medical Technology EXPO’s in Asia 2022 – Where you should start

Expo – a platform to open new business opportunities

Expos, trade fairs, and shows are a way to build business networks and search for partners that open new potential markets. It brings a lot of positive exposure for companies and their innovations, builds customer interest, and opens doors for collaborative projects along the life science and medical technology value chain. Especially for the healthcare ecosystem, industry-specific conferences and trade fairs are essential to bringing the newest forms of treatment and healthcare-related technology available to everyone.

Unfortunately in 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic caused worldwide lockdowns, and the many expos got whether canceled or postponed. After the initial chock, online platforms and virtual events were the next steps in efforts to keep the progress ongoing. In retrospect, some of the virtual expos were well-organized, while most were not all that well thought in terms of visitor and exhibitor friendliness.

Now in 2022, as the pandemic hits the third year, expos, trade fairs, and shows are slowly turning back to live events. But in many cases, they have also integrated hybrid models so that online participation is also a possibility, and hopefully with a little more thought on user-friendliness.

As the fastest growing market, Asia – Southeast Asia and the Asia Pacific specifically – is dependent on well-organized expos to enable healthcare ecosystem growth. One of the reasons why the region is hosting an incredible amount of different trade fairs and shows of different levels.

Asia-Pacific is the fastest growing market for life sciences and medical technology.

Expos not to miss in Asia 2022

Here is a list for the first half of the year 2022 of most interesting Expos, as it is an arduous task to figure out which to participate in the region and which are not that essential. Traditionally, Japan has been dominating in this domain, but South Korea has been shorten the lead by arranging life science expos on a larger scale in terms of visitors and exhibitors. On the other hand, in some developing countries, such as Malaysia and Indonesia, only one medical and hospital expo might be arranged that is worth consideration.
