The 45th edition of Arab Health, the Middle East’s largest healthcare event, kicks off on Monday to be held at Dubai World Trade Centre and 55,000 visitors from 159 countries are expected to throng to three-day event between January 27-30.
The theme for Arab Health 2020 is Connectivity for better healthcare delivery, promoting the shows commitment to bringing together stakeholders from the full spectrum of the healthcare industry to support improvement in the sector. To achieve this goal, ‘sectorization’ will form a major focus for the event with the show floor split into eight distinct sectors, including medical equipment and devices; disposable and consumer goods; healthcare infrastructure and assets; imaging and diagnostics; and preventive and post-diagnostics treatments, among others.
With innovation anticipated to be a hot topic of discussion on the show floor, the much-lauded Innovation Hub returns with a dedicated area at Arab Health. Located in the Plaza Hall, the Start up zone will feature start-ups, SMEs and innovators providing the opportunity to showcase and demonstrate their new products and innovation shaping the future of healthcare.
Ross Williams, Exhibition Director, Arab Health, said: “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.”
