From December 4 through December 8 Moscow’s main exhibition venue Expocentre hosted an international scientific forum known as “Russian healthcare week”. Elamed team followed the tradition and participated in the event.
The forum’s history starts in 1974. A once minor exhibition has become a huge international medical conference since then. Today Russia’s high-ranking government officials emphasize the event’s importance by saying that Healthcare has been displaying achievements and development trends of the national healthcare for many years and can be considered the most effective platform for discussions on the modern day medicine.
The conference saw thousands of visitors during those five days it was running. Among those visitors were heads of the Ministry of Healthcare and the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
А s for the participants, all the leading scientific institutions associated with Russian healthcare were represented with their latest developments on display. Foreign companies and institutions were present as well each demonstrating their country’s up-to-date achievements in the sphere of medical care.
Here are some numbers to make it more specific. The 40000 square meter venue welcomed over 900 companies from 35 world countries including some very distant ones like Australia.
Elamed had two stands, one of them being part of the 11th international exhibition “Healthy living-2017” and the other one arranged as part of the Healthcare-2017. The number of new contacts that we received during the forum days is really impressive and most of the new potential partners were representing private medical centers.
The event has been huge indeed. And we can’t help noticing the interest to our products is growing with the forum itself evolving into a true healthcare trend-setter.
