MEDICAL FAIR INDIA 2018 continues on course for growth

Quality and quantity of visitors makes for high spirits among

MEDICAL FAIR INDIA, India’s No. 1 Trade Fair for Hospitals, Health
Centres and Clinics, impressively continues its rate of growth and keeps
pace with the positive trend in the industry. This conclusion can be drawn
from the successful course of MEDICAL FAIR INDIA 2018 in Mumbai. 16 –
18 March saw 12,350 trade visitors come to the Bombay Convention &
Exhibition Centre to learn from 551 exhibitors about innovations for health
care and current trends.

“This means that the number of visitors has gone up yet again by 15%
compared to the event at the same location two years before. In interviews
exhibitors said they were very satisfied with the quality of visitors and their
demands,” explains Thomas Schlitt, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf
India, and adds: “Rising incomes, population growth and increasing health
consciousness all result in steady market growth and a call for improved
health care. This is also reflected by the development of MEDICAL FAIR
INDIA. It is not only a platform for supply and demand. It is also about joint
ventures for product development, manufacturing and sales.”
Since there are currently only about 60 national medical device technology
producers, the majority of products and technologies for medical needs are
imported. This opens up excellent business opportunities for multi-national
vendors. At the same time, there is a need for them to closely cooperate
with Indian partners so as to rise to the challenges specific to the Indian
market in an optimal way. Underlining this on behalf of many exhibitors,
Simon Bensassi, International Sales Director of Surgival from Spain, said:
“This was the first time we have participated at MEDICAL FAIR INDIA. We
have reached many high-quality visitors. What was especially important to
us was gaining insights into the Indian market. Who are the decisionmakers?
What about the government and what about pricing? How much is
invested and where? These were questions we had interesting
conversations about.”
