Bangkok – Manila (12 June 2019)
VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific Co., Ltd is the leading market platform in the Laboratory industry and runs exhibitions and conferences in ASEAN, providing a network of more than 20,000 industry professionals per year. Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL is the annual trade exhibition and conference on analytical laboratory equipment & technology, biotechnology & life science and chemical & safety equipment. For the 9th edition, the exhibition space is larger and the organizer has decided to separate the halls to focus on life science and biotechnology namely ‘BIO Investment Asia’ in EH104, which will be held from 25-27 September 2019 at EH 102-104, BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand.
As our vision is to expand and stimulate the LAB technology industry in the Asia region, the Philippines is one of our focus countries this year. From the research, the Philippines medical equipment market remains a lucrative one for U.S. suppliers. Highly dependent on imports, the market continues to expand at a steady pace. Medical equipment is almost 100% imported, as are approximately 50% of medical disposables. Local production is limited to prototype units, spare parts (including improvised parts), and disposables such as surgical gloves, syringes, and needles.
The major factors impacting demand are population growth and hospital expansion and upgrading. Hospitals base buying decisions on quality, but above all, on price, so the Philippines is participating in the ASEAN Medical Device Regulatory Harmonization Workshop, which is part of an ongoing initiative to improve and standardize the medical device regulatory process in the region. This shows that the Philippines is eager to develop laboratory and medical equipment and biotechnology, and is developing new technology and innovations for domestic use. Consequently, we would like to offer a market platform where you can find the latest lab and medical technology at ‘Thailand LAB INTERNTIONAL 2019’ where we demonstrate we can stimulate the Lab and Pharmaceutical market in your country and the Asia region.
VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific would like to take this opportunity to invite top companies, associations and members of the press in the Philippines to participate in ‘Thailand LAB CONNECT: Philippines’ which will be on Thu.27 June 2019 at Century Park Hotel, Manila, Philippines. The highlight topic on this event will be ‘Philippines Laboratory and medical market trends in 2019’ by Mr. Ronaldo Esguerra Puno, National President of the Philippine Association of Medical Technologists (PAMET) and Vice-President of Asia Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (AAMLS), Another speaker will be Mr.Anucha Parnpichate, Head of Competence Center Technology, VNUE AP, who will talk about how Filipino investors can increase business opportunities in the Asia market at the press conference of Thailand LAB INTERNATIONAL 2019.
