This year’s event had to be scheduled a month earlier than usual, due to the Nuclear Security Summit drawing representatives from 50 leading countries to Seoul in March. Nonetheless, 1,436 international and domestic medical manufacturers were at KIMES 2012, taking the exhibitor record higher than ever. Breakdown: 458 Korean firms and 978 foreign, including the USA: 121, Japan: 75, China and Germany: 77, Taiwan: 36, Italy: 18 and England: 14 companies.
About 30,000 advanced medical devices, hospital equipment and healthcare products were exhibited for around 60,000 visitors, including 2,000 foreign buyers from 70 countries. Hosting the show, the Korea Medical Devices Industrial Cooperative Association and Korea Medical Devices Industry Association expected to make KRW 1.4 trillion from domestic consultations and $470 million from export consultations.
