Messe Düsseldorf Asia and SPETA (Singapore Precision Engineering and Technology Association), co-organisers of MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA have made the decision to cancel the 2020 edition of the exhibition. It was to be held from 9-11 September 2020 at Marina Bay Sands.
MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA – 5th Manufacturing Processes for Medical Technology Exhibition and Conference, is a specialist exhibition for Asia’s MedTech and medical manufacturing processes sectors and will now take place from 31 August to 2 September 2022. “The decision was made after careful consideration with our partners of the current situation surrounding COVID-19 and the business disruption to the local MedTech and medical manufacturing community.
Despite our combined efforts with SPETA and the local sectors, rescheduling the exhibition for later this year was not a feasible option. We have thus come to the collective decision that, under the circumstances, this is the best course of action for the industries we serve. This also reflects our desire to give all stakeholders involved ample notice to react in good time and together prepare for a stronger showcase in 2022,” said Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director, Messe Düsseldorf Asia.
The cancellation represents an unprecedented scenario for all concerned and as with the last four editions, MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA will continue to take every possible measure to carry over the successful status of the biennial trade fair to the new date in 2022. “We will continue to extend the necessary support to all exhibitors and partners to ensure a seamless transition, and look forward to welcoming participants in August 2022,” he said.
The MEDICAL MANUFACTURING ASIA team will reach out to all confirmed exhibitors and participants regarding event logistics and planning.
Co-located exhibition, MEDICAL FAIR ASIA 2020, has been postponed and will take place from 9-11 December 2020 at Marina Bay Sands and will be held concurrently with the 12th Occupational Safety + Health Exhibition for Asia. Both exhibitions are organised by Messe Düsseldorf Asia.
