The organising committee of ‘Medicare 2019 – National Healthcare Exhibition’ has announced its partnership with FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry), for the second consecutive year. 

FICCI is the largest and oldest apex business chamber in India with its history closely interwoven with India’s struggle for independence, industrialisation, and emergence as one of the most rapidly growing global economies. Through its partnership with Medicare 2019, FICCI will facilitate and provide a platform for Indian companies to participate at the exhibition, allowing them to network and build lasting, mutually beneficial relationships in Sri Lanka. 

Medicare 2019, Sri Lanka’s premier healthcare exhibition is organised in collaboration with specialist medical associations, under the patronage of the Ministry of Health and is expected to feature over 220 local and international vendors, showcasing a wide range of products and services. The exhibition will take place from 1 March to 3 March at the Sirimavo Bandaranaike Memorial Exhibition Hall at BMICH, Colombo and is expected to attract over 15,000 visitors.

Founded over 10 years ago, Medicare’s goal has always been to bring together local and international healthcare experts under one roof, thus allowing medical experts, industry specialists and the general public to interact with each other. Medicare 2019 will feature vendors from various disciplines such as medical tourism, ayurveda, healthcare awareness and medical equipment suppliers and manufacturers.

Established in 1927, FICCI is a non-government, not-for-profit organisation and is the voice of India’s business and industry. From influencing policy to encouraging debate, engaging with policy makers and civil society, FICCI articulates the views and concerns of industry. It serves its members from the Indian private and public corporate sectors and multinational companies, drawing its strength from diverse regional chambers of commerce and industry across states, reaching out to over 250,000 companies.
