Why exhibit at ELDEX?
ELDEX Asia is the only B2B2C event in Asia Pacific that covers the complete spectrum on eldercare. These include the six exhibition segments of:
- Lifestyle & Wellness
- Architecture & Fittings
- Healthcare & Rehabilitation
- Technology, Digital & IT
- Financial, Insurance & Other Services
- The Great Beyond
ELDEX Asia is the region’s most dedicated exhibition for the rapidly growing eldercare industry. It creates an effective marketplace for international silver economy suppliers to meet and engage with Asia Pacific trade visitors and end-users. It will be held in Singapore, a hub and gateway to ASEAN markets and the rest of Asia including Japan, Korea, China and Australia.
Singapore currently has a sizeable elderly demographic segment with considerable purchasing power. By 2030, over a quarter of Singapore’s population will be aged 65 and above. The Singapore government has a clearly defined strategy and multi-pronged initiatives that tackle the silver tsunami that started as early as the 1980s. This includes the Singapore Programme for Integrated Care for the Elderly and more importantly, the Action Plan for Successful Ageing announced in August 2015. (A full history of the various government inter-agency committees may be found here.)
A supportive and visionary Singapore Government that plans ahead for the future to create a City for All Ages welcomes the early adoption of new technologies, products and services. Technology companies in particular will find that the Singapore ecosystem will be very welcoming to test-bedding new technologies in a nation that has very bold and strong smart city ambitions. The Singapore Government recognises that to meet the challenges of limited manpower and the need for efficient delivery of goods and services, the potential of technology and communications will have to be leveraged.
ELDEX Asia held in Singapore will facilitate the future distribution of such technologies, products and services to other neighbouring ageing economies including Malaysia and Thailand, and in the not too distant future, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam with rising living standards and quality of healthcare.
ELDEX Asia targets visitors from Southeast Asia's emerging silver markets such as Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore and secondary visitor markets from North Asian economies. They include eldercare product distributors, retailers, developers, architects, buyers such as hospitals, retirement homes, assisted living facilities and hospices, care givers, therapists, HR professionals and end-users (consumers). ELDEX Asia will organize a hosted buyer program for key high-level regional procurement teams.
