Reed Sinopharm to launch health exhibition in Shanghai

News this week: Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions, a joint venture company between Reed Exhibitions and Sinopharm, China’s largest state-owned pharmaceutical group, will launch The Health Industry Summit (tHIS) in Shanghai next year. The organiser expects the event to attract more than 6,000 exhibitors and cover a total exhibition space of 260,000 m2.

The new event will be held at the National (Shanghai) Center for Exhibition and Convention (NSCEC) in Shanghai’s Hongqiao district. tHIS will run from 15th to 18th May 2015 and include a Summit program of over 100 conferences. Three other co-located exhibitions will form part of the four-day event including CMEF, PHARMCHINA, API China.

A spokesman from Reed Sinopharm was quoted saying, “With China predicting its health industry to grow into an RMB 8 trillion (US$1.2 trillion) industry by 2020, and a strengthening of health sector demand, the move is clearly intended to secure more international trade and influence for China’s already sizable sector.”
