Large-scale events focused on medical equipment are annually held worldwide, providing a valuable business hub that encourages companies from around the world to enter into new markets and new alliances, developing new innovation and business opportunities.

Japan Health aligns with the goals of Expo 2025 Osaka, Kansai, the theme of which is "Designing Future Society for Our Lives." Building upon the legacy that Expo 2025 will leave on Osaka and Japan, Japan Health is planned to continue annually in 2026 and beyond.
