Posted on 26 October 2016 (Permalink)

Arab Health is the second largest healthcare exhibition and congress in the world and the largest in the Middle East. Taking place at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, it offers an excellent platform on which to build relationships within the healthcare industry, to showcase progress and achievement in the sector, and to explore new opportunities with stakeholders in the healthcare field.

More than 4,000 exhibitors attended Arab Health in 2016, with more than 75,000 healthcare professionals visiting from 70 countries around the world. Visitor numbers are expected to reach 101,000+ in 2017, with over 160 UK exhibitors expected at the UK Pavilion alone - 2,500sqm dedicated to the UK, providing unparalleled visibility for UK companies.

The Midlands Engine initiative aims to boost economic growth across the region through enhanced trade and investment. By joining the Midlands Engine Group  Arab Health delegation, led by experienced Midlands-based trade advisers, you will be able to visit the show and participate in pre-arranged one-to-one meetings with overseas commercial advisers and buyers. You will also have the opportunity to take part in the additional activity arranged by DIT, including a networking reception and several optional site visits.

A commitment fee of £160+VAT for all delegates will cover some in-market event costs, but delegates need to meet their own flight and accommodation costs. The market visit is open to all Midlands exporters, and if you are an SME you may be eligible for a travel grant of £450.

This is an ideal opportunity both to develop your business and to see what your competitors are doing in the Middle East.
