We aim to drive it forward to Asia’s economic hub and gate to the world to draw business people, trends and investments from all over Asia.

Medical Japan attracted great attention inside and outside Japan, MEDICAL JAPAN 2017 gathered exhibitors from 25 countries. With a special support system for foreign exhibitors, it has successfully become their dependable entrance to the Japanese market. This year’s exhibits represented cutting-edge technologies together with the particular situation in Japan –a country with the most rapidly-aging population that is prone to frequent natural disasters. Many exhibitors became increasingly aware of the market demand to deal with the situation. This will no doubt stay in the mainstream for some years to come.

Best Gateway for International Exhibitors’ Debut in Japan

Product manufacturers & Medical device of various nationalities held booths to introduce cutting-edge ideas/technologies to the world’s leading medical market, Japan. One of the exhibitors was WILAMED GMBH from Germany, who presented an innovative respiratory humidifier, “AIRcon”, which provides ventilated patients with optimally-conditioned respiratory gas.“AIRcon” was also introduced in Intensive Care Medicine Forum and captured great attention from clinical engineers with its modern technology and fresh design. In fact, most of such international exhibitors were newcomers to Japan and even did not apply for legally-obligated medical device registration. Show Management offered them a special support, called “Matching Support with Importers,” which enabled them to find right Japanese importers/distributors to start business by arranging over 400 meetings on site. The strong support makes MEDICAL JAPAN unrivalled gateway for all foreign exhibitors who aim to achieve success in Japan.
