Informa Markets, in partnership with Impact Muang Thong Thani, have confirmed that Medlab Asia and Asia Health will take place in Thailand for the first time when the co-located events return live and in-person at the Impact Exhibition Centre, Bangkok, from 19 - 21 October 2022.
The exhibitions, the leading events in the ASEAN region for the healthcare and laboratory industry, will showcase the latest techniques and innovations while also welcoming visitors and suppliers from around the world to meet, discuss and do business in the burgeoning healthcare hub of Thailand.
According to government data, sales of clinical laboratory services in Thailand are expected to increase to US$8.3 billion in 2026, from US$4.5 billion in 2016. The healthcare sector in the country has also seen a surge in the number of international patients it welcomes, with current figures standing at 2 million. However, this figure is expected to increase.
Tom Coleman, Exhibition Director for Informa Markets, said: “We are delighted to be relaunching Medlab Asia and Asia Health as a co-located event in Thailand. Both events have been integral to developing the healthcare and laboratory sectors in the ASEAN region over the last decade.
“This is something we are committed to continuing, to ensure the latest technology and insights are given a platform in the region and that both events continue to play a pivotal role in connecting those within the healthcare and laboratory industries.”
The co-located events are expected to welcome more than 4,200 attendees during the 10th edition of both events, with more than 300 exhibitors from over 20 countries showcasing the latest innovation in product development and new technologies and insights supporting the healthcare and laboratory industries. Both events are once again expected to be supported by a host of government entities, industry leaders and influencers in their respective sectors.
Forming a vital attribute of both events are the CME, CMTE, CNEU & CPD accredited conferences, each designed to provide peer-to-peer networking while fostering knowledge through insights and expert analysis. Medlab Asia will host six conference tracks, including Laboratory Management, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology, Molecular Diagnostics & Therapeutics, Hematology and Covid-19 Updates.
The congress focus for Asia Health will look, in detail, at Hospital Procurement, Sterilisation, Decontamination & Patient Safety, Doing Healthcare Business in Thailand and Total Radiology. This will be supported by workshops featuring latest technologies in the ASEAN healthcare sector.
Loy Joon How, General Manager, Impact Muang Thong Thani, said: “The healthcare industry has faced unprecedented challenges in recent years; however, the industry should be applauded for its efforts in supporting the recovery of businesses globally while also ensuring economic recovery.”
A host of exhibitors have already committed to attending the three-day showcase. They include, amongst others, Randox laboratories Ltd, Singapore-based GenScript Biotech, College of American Pathologists, Trivitron Healthcare, Sysmex Asia Pacific, BGI Genomics Co, and Sansure Biotech.
As part of Informa's commitment to providing the highest hygiene and safety levels, the event will again take place under the protocols introduced via the company’s Informa AllSecure health and safety mandate. The enhanced measures include 35 guidelines covering all aspects of cleaning and hygiene, social distancing measures, screening, and a track and trace in conjunction with local authorities.
