Work hard and play hard in one of the most exciting destinations in the world. Singapore’s critical mass of healthcare expertise, strategic location and business-friendly environment fosters international healthcare events that are second to none, and the city’s exhilarating mix of leisure activities will make you never want to leave.
The ideal setting for healthcare events, Singapore is where the world’s foremost medical experts go to widen their horizons.
Asia’s biomedical, pharmaceutical and healthcare providers are gearing up for a surge in demand as the region’s population grows larger, richer and older. At the same time, the Asian governments are equally challenged to deliver efficient, affordable and quality care.
Singapore is at the frontier of healthcare in Asia, having attracted a critical mass of global biomedical research institutes and corporate laboratories. In fact, approximately US$1.2 billion is spent annually on biomedical R&D in Singapore, making it one of Asia’s fastest-growing bio-clusters.
A shining example of healthcare management and financing, Singapore’s public healthcare system was named Asia’s best by the World Health Organization in 2000. Furthermore, the Joint Commission International, whose Asia-Pacific headquarters are based in Singapore, has accredited 15 of the nation’s hospitals and six medical centres.
What’s more, Singapore is widely regarded as safe, clean, convenient and fun, with countless leisure experiences for every taste, from shopping venues and dining experiences to a vibrant night scene.
Against this backdrop, Singapore is perfectly poised to welcome delegates from across the region and around the world to an array or healthcare conferences, exhibition, meetings and events, where they can exchange knowledge and expertise across the private and public sectors.
“Hosting a regional Healthcare IT conference in Singapore presents as outstanding opportunity for our regional counterparts to converge and learn from one another on a range of healthcare IT issues and trends, from policy-making experiences to technological expertise, as well as workforce preparedness and infrastructure development,” says Simon Lin, Acting Executive Director, HIMSS Asia Pacific.
“Singapore was a natural choice for the World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) to hold our congress, not only because of its excellent air connectivity, but also because of the availability of world-class meeting facilities combined with a dedicated local association, the Singapore Physiotherapy Association,” reveals Tracy Bury, WCPT Director Professional Policy.
The above are some relevant events that will be held in Singapore in the near future. Sign up for them and turn your trip into an inspiring experience in healthcare.
