OS+H Asia Hybrid Edition starts next week: 8 12 November 2021

The 12th OS+H Asia exhibition opens next week in the  form of a hybrid edition, bringing the best of both worlds — in-person
experience and online convenience — on the Integrated Virtual  Showcase (IVS). The ‘live’ component will take place at e2i West (Devan
Nair Institute for Employment and Employability) from 8-10 November,  while the virtual format runs from 8-12 November

With a focus on key issues dominating today’s occupational health and safety (OSH) landscape as well as knowledge building and upskilling opportunities for safety professionals, the hybrid edition is based on four key pillars:

Tech Innovation Stage | 8-10 November
Hosted Buyer Sessions | 8-10 November
Integrated Virtual Showcase | 8-12 November
Thought-leadership Industry Events | 8-12 November

The OS+H Asia Hybrid Edition sheds a spotlight on technology and innovation, with presentations and demonstrations by some of the top brands in the workplace safety and health (WSH) space such as ABBOTT, Carestar Robotics, Dräger, Fischer Bell, and Zoll Medical. The Tech Innovation Stage, streamed live and available on-demand, is at the heart of the hybrid edition. Presenting companies will be joined by invited WSH decision makers and buyers from six key sectors: building and construction, marine, transportation and warehousing, medical and healthcare, cleaning and environmental services, F&B hospitality, and manufacturing and processing.

Complementing the Tech Innovation Stage is the Exhibitor Showcase – a sourcing and procurement platform which will profile 60 companies and brands from 19 countries presenting their latest WSH products, newly launched innovations, and latest preventive solutions.

Commenting on this hybrid format, Mr Gernot Ringling, Managing Director at Messe D?sseldorf Asia, says: “This year continues to be a
page-turner, and the pandemic has shown us the importance of innovation and technology particularly in workplace safety, health, and
security. The challenges brought on by the pandemic have presented opportunities for us to rethink how we deliver our events, thus the Tech Innovation Stage will continue to be an integral part of OS+H Asia in future editions.”

“We are looking forward to reconnecting with exhibitors, visitors and industry partners and the return of in-person events albeit on a smaller scale for now. With the mandated Safe Management Measures in place, we are confident in a safe, secure, and successful business and networking experience for all involved,” he added.
