On average, each year, over 550 companies from 12 countries worldwide participate, and more than 50,000 individuals, including buyers, dealers, medical professionals, and hospital staff, attend the exhibition.
In this exhibition, five leading medical device manufacturing companies representing Gyeonggi Province will participate, showcasing products such as mobile X-ray fluoroscopy devices, real-time gene amplification devices, portable X-ray imaging devices, epidural catheters, and automated hemoglobin measurement devices in the Indonesian market.
On September 6, Gyeonggi Province held a seminar on entering the medical device markets in Vietnam and Indonesia, providing medical device companies with information on the market environment, medical device registration policies, and related topics.
