Two of Southeast Asia’s leading medical and occupational safety trade fairs recently closed, reporting many successes. Held concurrently in Singapore, Hospimedica ASIA 2006, 6th International Exhibition on Hospital, Diagnostic, Pharmaceutical, Medical & Rehabilitation Equipment & Supplies, and OS+H Asia 2006, 5th Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition for Asia, presented a comprehensive range of the latest equipment, supplies, innovations and services.

A total of 350 international and national exhibitors from 32 countries – including the 13 country pavilions from Australia, Austria, Belgium, China, France, Germany, Great Britain, India, Korea, Pakistan, Singapore, Spain and Taiwan – took part in Hospimedica. The show attracted 5,445 trade visitors, only 40 percent of whom hailed from Singapore – the majority came from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and India. A significant number of buyers from Vietnam, Taiwan, Philippines and China were also present.

OS+H featured 125 exhibitors, brands, agents and distributors from 17 countries, including some 200 delegates who attended the show’s annual business advantage conference, OSH. The conference also hosted 4,012 visitors, with 20 percent of the attendees coming from outside of Singapore.

Among the Southeast Asia countries, Singapore has one of the more vigilant occupational safety and health practices. The recent introduction of Singapore’s new Workplace Safety and Health Act (WSHA) in March 2006 and the Workplace Safety and Health Risk Management Regulations in September 2006 attracted more safety officers and decision makers to the conference.

The next Hospimedica ASIA and OS+H Asia events will be held concurrently from Sept. 16-18, 2008 in Singapore. In 2007, Messe Düsseldorf Asia will organize Hospimedica Thailand from Sept. 12-14, to be held in Bangkok.
