Singex & Fiera Milano launch Rehabtech Asia

News this week: A new trade show for the assistive technology, integrated care and rehabilitation engineering industry, RehabTech Asia, will be co-organised by Fiera Milano and Singex Exhibition Ventures in Singapore next year. The inaugural show will be held at the Singapore Expo Convention and Exhibition Centre from 27th February to 1st March 2013.

The three-day event will be supported by the Singapore Exhibition & Convention Bureau and will feature a trade exhibition that is supported by a conference, hosted buyer programme and business forum.

Ilaria Cicero, head of Fiera Milano’s legal department, said in the press release, “In 2010, the market for assistive devices in the E.U. had an estimated annual value of €30bn (US$38 billion). We anticipate the same trend in Asia, as the spotlight shifts to the needs of people with disabilities and their caregivers. We are confident of the business potential of Southeast Asia and beyond, and that RehabTech Asia will be a strong addition to the well-established ReaTech tradeshow circuit in Europe and South America.”

Fiera Milano also organises ReaTech Brasil, through its subsidiary and in cooperation with ReaTech Italia.
