More than 12,000 buyers visit 2019 fair, up 8% on last year

HONG KONG, May 16, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - The 10th HKTDC Hong Kong International Medical and Healthcare Fair, organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) and co-organised by the Hong Kong Medical and Healthcare Device Industries Association (HKMHDIA), finished its three-day run (14 to 16 May) today. The fair welcomed more than 12,000 buyers from 61 countries and regions, an increase of 8% compared with last year.

Another Korean company, 1 Drop Inc, which was established two years ago, brought its portable blood testing device that uses a smartphone and plasma separating biosensors to detect several diseases with only one drop of blood, revolutionising the way tests are conducted. Company CEO Joowon Rhee said they joined the fair for the first time and were satisfied with the result, having met more than 100 buyers from the mainland and Southeast Asia on the first day alone. The encouraging response aligns well with the company's plan to expand into international markets later in 2019.
