OPPORTUNITY: Virtual Digital Health Mission to Korea, Malaysia, Taiwan

The Department for International Trade is inviting you and other innovative digital health companies to apply for our Virtual Digital Health Mission to Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan which will be taking place from the 21st September to 8th October.  

Dates: 21/09/20 - 08/10/20 (the mission will consist of a programme of short sessions taking place between these dates)

This Virtual Trade Mission will ensure that companies can continue to benefit from the resources, networks and knowledge of the DIT network overseas in a challenging time for the world. This will help companies to continue to build on their international growth ambitions without travel.  

This mission gives the opportunity for UK digital health companies to experience three different markets in the Asia Pacific region. All three of the countries are developed economies with rapidly growing digital healthcare sectors, however their digital healthcare sectors are at different levels of development. This is an opportunity for UK digital healthcare companies to connect with a diverse set of markets and cover multiple opportunities without having to travel to the region. There will be opportunity to learn about the markets as well as make valuable Buisness 2 Business connections. 

All events are entirely online and free of charge for the selected companies. Events will include in depth market briefings, a virtual pitch session to a regional audience of potential buyers and partners, roundtable sessions with key local stakeholders and 121 meetings with interested parties.

The aim of the mission is to enable the selected companies to learn more about the region and to make the connections they need for their business to succeed in the markets.
