A Crowd of people in arab health
From 29th January to 1st February 2018, the emirate of Dubai will welcome more than 4,200 exhibiting companies and around 103,000 attendees from over 150 countries at the 2018 Arab Health Exhibition and Congress in what is clearly the largest gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in the MENA region. With 90% of exhibitors at last year’s event rebooking their space for the 2018 edition of the show, the success and strength of the event as the region’s leading exhibition and conference in the healthcare industry has been validated beyond doubt.

In addition to hosting more than 40 dedicated national pavilions, the 43rd edition of the event showcasing the global healthcare industry in the Middle East, gives a truly international representation of hospital equipment, medical devices and medical technology on display at the exhibition. Occupying the entire exhibition space of the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre, Arab Health 2018 will enable companies to showcase progress and achievements in the sector, and help facilitate the exploration of new business opportunities in the global healthcare field. The exhibition also provides an important platform for the MENA healthcare industry to build relationships with international stakeholders.

From its inception 42 years ago in Dubai, UAE, as a small trade show under a tented canvas to its emergence and transformation as the MENA region’s foremost global healthcare industry platform and education hub, the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress enjoys the continuous patronage of healthcare professionals in the region and beyond.
Accompanying the exhibition will be 19 business, leadership and Continuing Medical Education (CME) conferences providing the very latest updates and insights into cutting-edge procedures, techniques and skills. Arab Health Congress 2018 is one of the largest multi-track medical conferences accredited to CME worldwide and will see the participation of more than 8,000 delegates and 500 speakers from the region and around the world as it aims to bridge the gap in medical knowledge. 



This is the new platform at Arab Health 2018 that will enable personal healthcare device manufacturers and service providers to showcase new technology, products and services to thousands of decision makers both regionally and internationally. Exhibitors will display the latest in “smart” healthcare technology that connects patients to physicians and hospitals/clinics.

Wearable technology is becoming an essential part of our daily lifestyle. With diseases such as diabetes and obesity becoming increasingly prevalent, smart personal healthcare devices have the potential to help patients and clinicians to monitor these conditions, as well as keep track of fitness, blood pressure, and even sleep quality, amongst others.

This Zone also includes Connected Health as an overall theme with Big Data, Telehealth, Healthcare Software, 3D Medical Printing, Patient Monitoring, Homecare Devices and many others.
