According to Wikipedia, the city-state Singapore is currently one of the ten most visited metropolises in the world with more than eleven million foreign tourists a year, and is considered Asia's most important financial centre alongside Hong Kong. And this despite the fact that the total area is just about the size of Hamburg. Personally, I am fascinated by the aesthetics and cleanliness of this city.
A special sight worth seeing in Singapore is the tropical garden "Gardens by the Bay". Here you are in good hands if you want to enjoy Asian and international street food dishes in a special atmosphere.
We started doing business in Singapore in 2012, due to the fact that the international medical market became more and more important for our members.
Every two years Singapore hosts the trade fairs Medical Fair Asia, which can be compared to MEDICA Fair in Düsseldorf, and the co-located specialist exhibition for medical manufacturing MMA, which can be compared to COMPAMED in Germany.
As COMPAMED has grown in importance from year to year for international micro and nanotechnology companies, the interest in the "sister fairs" in Asia has also grown.
Since 2012 we have participated every two years in the MMA with our joint stand. All exhibiting companies agreed on one point: Singapore is an excellent stepping stone for European and American companies to enter the Asian markets.
Great flight connections, a highly developed infrastructure and political stability: these advantages are appreciated all over the world and ensure a high number of international visitors at trade shows.
Here I would like to share some impressions of the fair and our exhibitors from the past years with you.
In conclusion, the following can be said: professional events like trade fairs in Singapore offer the unique chance to get in contact with potential customers and suppliers from Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and Korea at the same time.
The economy of the ASEAN countries is developing rapidly. It is expected that the coming years will see more investments focus on the medical technology field. Singapore, with its strong economy and important research institutions, works as the engine of economic development.
From August 31 to September 02, 2022, the MMA will again take place in Marina Bay Sands, Sands Expo and Convention Center.
Main topics of MMA 2022 are innovations from micro- and nanotechnology like:
