The next frontier of Healthcare
Beyond the medical sciences
Singapore’s strong infocomm and technology infrastructure also supports the development of intelligent solutions for the healthcare sector. This infrastructure will be critical as the island’s healthcare industry gears up to support its ageing population.
Applied Health Sciences Business Events: Opportunities for growth
As Singapore and ASEAN’s Healthcare and Biomedical industries develop, there is rising demand and market relevance for healthcare thought-leadership conferences. The shift in focus on the continuum of care and preventive care studies is another trend that is surfacing. Alongside Asia’s demographic trends and Singapore’s medical specialities, there is also a captive regional audience for trade conferences and exhibitions on chronic and infectious diseases, cardiology, ageing and rehabilitation, healthcare technology, nutriceutical and medical sub-specialities.
