We are delighted to announce that the 2017 Edition of the Asia Pacific MedTech Forum will take place in Singapore at The Star Performing Arts Theatre, on 7 – 9 November 2017.

“Transforming Healthcare through Innovation”

The accelerating pace of technological advancement, from artificial intelligence and augmented reality, to mobile health and big data, is profoundly transforming the global healthcare landscape. The scale and speed of change across the entire healthcare value chain is also unprecedented.

As disruptive technologies are emerging across the region, innovative models of care delivery are also challenging traditional practices, propelling MedTech players to rethink their business models and channels, and forge new partnerships to deliver the best patient outcomes.

This two-day Forum will explore the multifaceted approach to innovation within the healthcare ecosystem, with a specific focus on Asia Pacific, set to be the second largest market for MedTech by 2020.

Bringing together senior medical device executives, regulators, policy makers, healthcare providers, payers and governments representatives, the event will address how these new forces provide both unparalleled opportunities and challenges in solving unmet healthcare needs.

Indeed, the region remains one of complexity and contrast. Home to more than half of the worlds’ population, and a burgeoning middle class of healthcare consumers, vast discrepancies in needs and healthcare systems are observed across Asia Pacific.

The event programme will also focus on critical areas such as the regulatory environment, ethical business standards and compliance, as well as the promotion talent, and the sustainable development of products and services to address the unmet healthcare needs of this unique region.

Under the theme “Creating New Partnerships in Healthcare”, the 2016 Asia Pacific MedTech Forum, gathered over 500 delegates from 22 countries, and showcased 85 speakers taking part in 20 panel discussions.

The Asia Pacific Medical Technology Association (APACMed) aspires to improve access to high quality

healthcare through collaboration among all stakeholder to ensure that patients in the region have access to the most innovative, lifechanging healthcare products and services.

Join us in Singapore this November, and play your part in the future of healthcare in the region!
