Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Arab Health, the Middle East’slargest healthcare exhibition and congress, which returns to Dubai next week from 30 January to 2 February at the Dubai World Trade Centre, will reaffirm the world is open for business with more than 45 country pavilions, including for the first time New Zealand, Singapore, Tunisia, Indonesia and Estonia.
In addition to an influx of new and returning international exhibitors, the event has also witnessed an uptick in regional exhibitors resulting in the show selling out in December, despite an additional five halls being added to the exhibitions’ allotted space. Arab Health is now effectively taking up all available space at Dubai World Trade Centre.
With more than 3,000 exhibitors taking part, there are over 51,000 healthcare professionals expected to attend the four-day event, which this year is being held under the theme of ‘innovation and sustainability in healthcare’ and follows a successful 2022 edition of Arab Health, which saw AED2.8 billion worth of deals secured at the event.
Ross Williams, Exhibition Director for Informa Markets, said: “The UAE will again be the epicentre of the healthcare industry when Arab Health returns next week. We saw a solid bounce back in 2022, and 2023 is at around 97% of pre-COVID-19 figures, underscoring the global demand, which is matched by buyers keen to witness first-hand the latest innovations and new technologies in the healthcare sector.
“With the increase in international pavilions, we are providing the ideal platform for the MENA healthcare industry to build relationships with stakeholders from around the world while reaffirming UAE’s position as a global healthcare hub.”
As part of Arab Health’s commitment to showcasing the latest technology and innovation, a series of new features have been added to the exhibition show floor, including the Intelligent Health Pavilion in partnership with the Intelligent Health Association. Located in Arab Health’s Healthcare Transformation Zone, the Intelligent HealthTM Pavilion will showcase several new technologies through live demonstrations, including a groundbreaking digital Intensive Care Unit, an intelligent Operating Room, and a revolutionary Emergency Room.
“This new feature will allow visitors to experience the most innovative and sustainable healthcare technologies improving patient care. We will also have a seminar theatre, which will provide exhibitors with a platform to reveal the latest cutting-edge healthcare technology,” said Williams.
Continuing the innovation theme, Arab Health will also host the second edition of the Future Health Summit at the Museum of the Future. The exclusive, fully-immersive event for C-suite executives from the healthcare industry will look into the future of health and healthcare possibilities in the Metaverse. Several world-renowned industry leaders, visionaries, metaverse experts, authors, and futurists on the topic will offer their insights.
The popular Innov8 Talks competition returns, providing 24 start-ups from all over the world the opportunity to showcase how they are developing unique and innovative solutions benefiting the healthcare industry. The competition will run from 30 February – 1 March, with the winner announced on Wednesday.
A host of government entities will support the event, including the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention, the Government of Dubai, the Dubai Health Authority, the Department of Health, the Dubai Healthcare City Authority, and Emirates Health Services.
