The UK, especially in the healthcare and life sciences industry, is a global player and has much to offer when it comes to exporting its know-how and capabilities to the world. Going to various trade shows in the space, there are always large UK pavilions, whether that’s at Medica in Germany or at Arab Health in Dubai.
Arab Health has become a show that attracts not only British companies but people from across the world. It is the largest healthcare event in the Middle East, organised by Informa Exhibitions-Healthcare.
Established 44 years ago, Arab Health provides a platform for the world’s leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to meet the medical and scientific community in the Middle East and subcontinent. The 2019 edition of the event is expected to welcome more than 4,150 exhibiting companies and 84,500+ attendees from 160+ countries.
The Arab Health Congress is reputed for delivering the highest quality programme of Continuing Medical Education (CME) to medical professionals in the region. Attended by more than 4,500 delegates from around the globe, 11 conferences will bring a global appeal with international speakers covering a broad spectrum of medical specialities and disciplines.
