Wu Yingping, president of the China National Health Association, said Zhuhai was chosen because of location and potential as an innovation bright spot in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. The city's biomedical industry had total output value of 25.19 billion yuan ($3.7 billion) in 2019 and plans are to increase that to 120 billion yuan ($17.6 billion) by 2035.

Their exhibits cover biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, medical devices and services, biomedical epidemic prevention technology and materials, hydrogen medical products, traditional Chinese medicine, and cosmetic medicine.
The event is intended to advance the Chinese medical and healthcare industry and optimize Zhuhai's biomedicine sector, which is embarking on a high-end, digitalized, and "intelligent" development path. Attendees are exploring the direction of innovation and development in Zhuhai and the Chinese medical and healthcare industry and providing suggestions for the development of Zhuhai's medical and health industry.
