This Month we get to know better Medcon Information Consultancy Co., Ltd.


What was your motivation to join ICCA?

In 2023, Medcon took a significant leap forward in the internationalization of its products and services by undertaking a comprehensive upgrade of its SaaS based conference management platform. This involved adopting an Amazon Web Service global server deployment strategy and implementing seamless language switching among multiple interfaces, among other technological optimizations. Later that year, Medcon boldly declared the strategic slogan "Go Global or Go Out," a targeted move underscoring the company's ambition to conquer international markets.

We also had our English website updated at the end of 2023 and we are preparing the English promotional materials for our products at the same time.

By becoming an ICCA member, it serves as a strategy for our business internationalization process and expansion into international markets. Medcon will undertake multi-level initiatives to align more closely with international standards and practices, including:

  • Adopting and developing cutting-edge conference technologies
  • Optimizing conference management processes for international events
  • Building an internationalized/localized professional team
  • Compliance with international regulations and standards
  • Forging strategic partnerships
  • Assuming corporate social responsibility


Tell us your story. How Medcon Information Consultancy Co., Ltd. get started?

Medcon Information Consultancy Co., Ltd, established in 2006, is a prominent conference system service provider and high-tech enterprise centered on SaaS cloud platform technology within the conference industry.

As early as 2007, Medcon's on-site check-in and badge printing products had been successfully deployed to our first international conference, an event that not only attested to the company's innovative prowess and professional competence in the realm of conference technology, but also laid a solid foundation for its subsequent development. Since then, Medcon has steadfastly pursued a dual-track strategy encompassing both domestic and international markets, eagerly embracing cutting-edge concepts and advanced technologies from abroad while simultaneously forging ahead with determination in the international conference arena. The company has consistently strived to evolve into a globally influential "International Conference Technology Services Provider."

In recent years, Medcon has earned recognition due to its professional technical solutions. An increasing number of domestic and international academic associations and institutions have turned to Medcon to provide full support and services for various significant academic conferences.

What is your favourite success story from your organisation?

To be frank, each international client or conference we engage with presents a unique and valuable learning experience for me. The 17th International Congress of Endocrinology was held in Beijing at the year of 2016. In the context of this conference service, I was entrusted for the first time to represent the organizers from China, which is the Chinese Medical Association, in communicating and meeting with international organizing entities, overseeing comprehensive planning and implementation for the conference. Moreover, during the preparatory phase, I acted on behalf of the organizer, attending and promoting the conference at the ENDO2016 in Boston. We have had a great success for this joint event.


What can we expect to see from Medcon Information Consultancy Co., Ltd. in the future?

In summary, with our successful admission into ICCA, Medcon will confidently embark on a path towards greater internationalization.
