The continued success of MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND is attributed to numerous factors including its staging against a dynamic backdrop of a booming medical and health care environment. Healthcare demand in Southeast Asia is increasing rapidly, driven by population growth rates, an ageing population, and more discerning customers looking for quality health care. Thailand's health care spending is estimated to rise by 8% each year through to 2018 to reach an estimated US$18.7 billion.
Other key growth factors include the growing private health care market, increased demand for quality medical products and services and Thailand's growing position as one of Asia's most prominent medical tourism hotspots. Thailand's ability to attract medical tourists with its affordability and high quality of service as well as its natural attractions, allows patients to combine medical treatment with a vacation, making Thailand a winning combination.
Admission to MEDICAL FAIR THAILAND is free and is only open to those involved in medical and health care. Trade visitors can register onsite. For the more information, log on to www.medicalfair-thailand.com
