Premiere in Bangkok: First IVAM joint booth at the Medical Fair Thailand


The IVAM Microtechnology Network, a leading international association for high-tech companies will exhibit with its members for the first time at the renowned Medical Fair Thailand (MFT) this year. 

900 exhibitors from 50 nations will meet 12,000 trade visitors in September

From September 13-15, 2023, Medical Fair Thailand will open its doors in Bangkok, providing an excellent opportunity to network with companies in ASEAN countries. Thailand, with its emerging industry, also forms a good start for an ASEAN market entry. In particular, large government investments in the healthcare system make the market highly interesting for medical technology supplier companies. 

For the ninth time, the approximately 900 exhibitors from about 50 countries will welcome nearly 12,000 visitors at BITEC in Bangkok. Medical technology specialists will meet to exchange information on current technologies and trends and to present their product innovations to the Asian market.

New focus on the "Components and Suppliers" theme area
