The Arab Health 2020 event kicked off in Dubai today, making it the largest healthcare event globally.
Around 55,000 healthcare professionals and 4250 companies from 159 countries will take part in Arab Health 2020 and exhibit healthtech, different products and services and also showcase all the medical breakthroughs made in the Middle East and the North African (MENA) region.
The Arab Health 2020 event, which will run for 4 consecutive days, will also include the ‘Innov8 Talks’ segment which provides a platform for SMEs from the region to showcase their products and innovation when it comes to the healthcare sector.
Ross Williams, Exhibition Director at Arab Health told the media, “Now in its 45th year, Arab Health continues to be the leading platform for the MENA healthcare industry to build relationships with international stakeholders and to showcase the latest innovation and technology in the healthcare sector.”
“We have a very specific mandate to facilitate business opportunities within the region while also advancing industry knowledge, something we have facilitated successfully for over four decades.”
The event will also see the introduction of two new segments which will focus on investment in healthcare and infrastructure. While the Healthcare Investment Forum will address investment in healthtech, real estate, and future investment opportunities, the Healthcare Infrastructure Forum will focus on the lifecycle of a healthcare facility; starting from the vision, its design, development, management and operation.
Arab Health 2019 was a major success as it witnessed a 5.9 percent increase in business from $778 million in 2018 to $824 in 2019.
The event, which is organised by Informa Markets, starts at 10 am and will conclude at 5 pm.
