Messe Düsseldorf Asia announced that MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND will not be held in 2022 as planned but will return from September 13 – 15, 2023 at BITEC in Bangkok. The focus will now be on MEDICAL FAIR ASIA and MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA, to be held concurrently at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore from August 31 – September 2, 2022.
The on-going ban on large scale events in Bangkok and the varied quarantine requirements for returning international travelers has made it extremely challenging for all involved to plan their participation. Since it is impossible to predict how the situation will develop in the coming months despite falling COVID-19 cases and increased vaccination efforts in Thailand, cancelling the 2022 edition of MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND rather than rescheduling the exhibition was the most feasible option due to the upcoming staging of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA and MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA in Singapore.
Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messed Düsseldorf Asia, commented: “Given the time frame, with a little over four months until the exhibition, international exhibitors will need to start making preparations now. With 90% of the exhibitors and 40% of the visitors coming from abroad, we felt it was in the best interest of all participants involved to move MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND to 2023 to avoid potential economic and health risks. However, we will continue our efforts to offer our exhibitors and visitors a business platform and gateway to Southeast Asia that is highly effective and tailored to all our current needs and focus on a stronger showcase and enhanced edition of MEDICAL FAIR ASIA in 2022 which will co-locate with MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA, to be held in Singapore. We believe that with this announcement ahead of time, it will benefit all attendees and pave the way for better planning and stronger participation at MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2022, as the world transits to the endemic stage of COVID-19 by Q3 2022.”

Daphne Yeo, Senior Project Manager, medical and healthcare portfolio at Messe Düsseldorf Asia, stated: “The decision to cancel MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND 2022 was a difficult one, and required a careful and open dialogue with industry partners, representative offices and exhibitors. Fortunately, we have been able to make our decisions in agreement and are very thankful for the encouragement and support from all involved. We look forward to welcoming the global medical and healthcare community to MEDICAL FAIR ASIA in Singapore next year against a backdrop of greater market confidence and optimistic travel conditions, to deliver customer expectations and performance success with a highly relevant, innovative and future-ready trade fair.”
