‘'Medical Korea & K-Hospital Fair 2016’

- An opportunity to advance as a World-wide Medical Fair via Public-Private Partnership -


Ministry of Health and Welfare (MOHW) announced that 'Medical Korea & K-Hospital Fair 2016' will be held from October 20th to 22nd at the COEX Convention & Exhibition Center in Seoul, Korea. The event is co-hosted by Korea Health Development Institute (KHIDI) and Korean Hospital Association (KHA) with special sponsorship from MOHW.


This convention is an integration of KHIDI’s 7th Global Healthcare & Medical Tourism Conference and KHA’s 3rd Korean Hospital Exhibition & Congress. This synthesis will foster professionalism and synergy in the Korea healthcare industry.


The Medical Korea & K-Hospital Fair 2016 is expected to have roughly 15,000 attendees from government and private sector in the field of healthcare industry and will be organized around the theme of “The Future of Global Healthcare: Innovation, Convergence, and Creation.” It will offer a unique opportunity to learn about the latest trends in global healthcare and the medical tourism industry through fruitful events such as the G2G summit, conference, exhibitions, business meetings, a Korean hospital familiarization tour, and an award ceremony.


A KHIDI source stated that this convention will be Asia’s largest global healthcare and medical tourism convention yet, while KHA one noted that joining together ‘Medical Korea’ and ‘K-Hospital Fair’ casts a long shadow in terms of the united efforts of Public-Private Partnership to further develop and expand the Korea health industry into the global market.


During the convention, invited government delegates will discuss cooperation strategies to address key issues in global healthcare, and participating companies will have a chance to expand their global network via business meetings.


Most importantly, the strength of Korea healthcare will be publicized to domestic and foreign participants through conferences and exhibitions such as ‘ICT-Health Special Exhibition,’ which demonstrates how Information and Communication Technology(ICT)-based digital medical technologies are being used for a surgical operation, robotic surgery, telemedicine, and so on.


More information about ‘Medical Korea & K-Hospital Fair 2016’ is available on its official website. (KHIDI) http://www.medical-korea.org / (KHA) http://www.khospital.org
