Successful Participation at CMEF Spring 2019

MREPC concluded another successful participation at the 81st China International Medical Equipment Fair, commonly known as CMEF Spring which was held from 14 – 17 May 2019 at the National Exhibition and Convention Centre in Shanghai, China. The event saw MREPC constructing its largest Malaysian Pavilion since participating at CMEF, taking up 153 square meters from 126 square meters previously. The pavilion accommodated 12 Malaysian manufacturers who showcased a wide array of rubber medical gloves and other rubber medical devices.

MREPC’s pavilion attracted many visitors who were keen in seeking high-quality made-in-Malaysia rubber medical devices. MREPC also received an encouraging number of trade enquiries with the majority from China and the Asian region. Concurrent business-matching sessions between the participating manufacturers and prospective buyers were conducted at MREPC's booth throughout the 4-day trade exhibition. MREPC also took the opportunity offered under the CMEF Spring Country Day to organise an educational seminar entitled “Managing Infection Control: Selecting the Right Gloves”. The seminar drew over 60 participants.

As part of promotional efforts to highlight Malaysia as the source of quality rubber medical devices, MREPC has enrolled for the E-CMEF online exhibition. This enables visitors to see MREPC’s pavilion 360 degrees through virtual reality (VR) technology. You may now visit all booths under MREPC’s pavilion throughout the year at CMEF official website http://vr.cmef.com.cn/2019/en.html and official WeChat account (WeChat ID: CMEF1979).
