CMEF are the largest Medical Equipment exhibitions in the Asia Pacific region attracting over 120,000 visitors from over 100 countries and regions. If you are interested in doing business in China, this is the event to attend!

The exhibition covers a wide range of medical technologies including medical electronics equipment, optical equipment, dental equipment, radioactive equipment, ultrasonic equipment, diagnostic and therapeutic instruments, physiotherapy/orthopaedic technology, lab equipment, commodities and consumer goods for surgeries and hospitals, rescue and emergency equipment, medical furniture and equipment, medical magazines and services.

The Chinese Healthcare market is the 3rd largest in the world in medical devices, 2nd in pharmaceuticals and its healthcare service market is also becoming one of the largest in the world. Growing disposable income, an ageing population and increasing government support is driving the growth of the Chinese healthcare industry, providing opportunities for partnerships between Welsh companies and local enterprises.

Market size reached £12 billion in 2010 for the medical devices industry in China, with a 23% growth rate. The Chinese government’s investment promises huge potential for the medical device market and it is predicted that £17 billion will be invested on medical device purchasing. Whether selling, trading, investing or franchising, China offers opportunities in abundance to Welsh companies, large or small.

The Welsh Government is inviting you to join the Life Sciences Wales trade exhibition to the Autumn CMEF 2012 in Chengdu, in the heart of Western China, either as exhibitors or visitors.

When joining the Welsh Government trade exhibition, Welsh companies will benefit from comprehensive support and services

The increasing demand from companies around the world to exhibit at CMEF means that space is limited and I therefore ask that interested companies please contact me on 07789 371306 or Karine.Davies@wales.gsi.gov.uk.
