The Health Industry Summit (tHIS) 2015 organized by Reed Sinopharm will be held on May 15-18, 2015, at the National Convention & Exhibitions Center in Shanghai, China. Latest figures indicate that the expo will occupy a 280,000sqm hall space, making it the largest integrated health industry event in the world in 2015. The event is also expected to break attendance records with 200,000 professional visitors from 140 countries.
The organizer Reed Sinopharm is a joint venture between the world’s leading event organizer Reed Exhibitions and China’s leading state-owned pharmaceutical group Sinopharm. tHIS, combining China’s 3 top medical equipment and pharmaceutical exhibitions CMEF, PHARMCHINA and API China, will showcase an extensive and comprehensive display of quality and cost-effective products from 6,000 exhibitors covering cutting-edge medical equipment and equipment manufacturing, pharmaceutical formulations & ingredients, manufacturing technology and natural health and nutrition and much more.
The launch of this significant event will turn a new chapter for China’s healthcare Industry, marking a transition from localized industry developments into a maturing market with global reach. According to a state-issued strategic whitepaper in 2013, China expects its health sector will skyrocket to a massive USD 1.2 trillion by 2020.
A clear beneficiary of this growth is the medical equipment sector. From April 2013 to April 2014, records indicated an increase of 1,369 new hospitals in China, of which 99% are privately-funded and in need of new equipment and services. At this year’s tHIS, over 3,000 of the total 6,000 exhibitors will be suppliers of medical equipment and its related services, including top international and local exhibitors like GE, SIEMENS, Phillips, Mindray, United Imaging etc. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors focusing on APIs, formulations will take the other half of the exhibition. A new fast growing market segment within tHIS is the natural health and nutritional products represented by the Natural health and Nutrition China which has seen participation doubling in size in 2015.
Anticipating the explosive investment opportunities, the organizer of the event announced the launch of the China Healthcare Investment Summit as the main congress heading a list of 100 conferences and events that will take place alongside the expo.
