Key events of the summit included China's top medical equipment and pharmaceutical exhibitions CMEF, PHARMCHINA and API China, which featured cutting-edge technologies such as VR, AR, wearables and AI as part of the new Intelligent Health exhibition, while traditional medicine was also highlighted at the show as China's own solution to treatment and prevention which runs parallel to modern medicine and drug development.
Leading companies with a major presence included medical device giants like GE, United Imaging, Siemens, Philips and Mindray as well as major pharmaceutical groups in China including Sinopharm, Shanghai Pharma and CR Pharmaceuticals. The majority of the most innovative companies in the medical field chose the show as their Global or Asia Pacific new product launch platform and more than 600 new product launches took place during the 4-day show.
