Global Health Exhibition 2022 offers opportunities for visitors to connect with healthcare professionals, clinicians and policymakers.

Over the past few years, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) has made significant strides in refining its healthcare sector. It is entering a new era of opportunities, driven not only by the goals outlined by Saudi Vision 2030’s Health Sector Transformation Program to enhance the quality of life but also by the government’s focus on boosting healthcare infrastructure and digital health, enhancing public-private partnerships and providing value-based care.

Recently, the country announced investment opportunities in the vaccines and vital medicines industry worth US$3 billion and US$66 billion in its healthcare infrastructure. This year, KSA will also reportedly spend US$36.8 billion on healthcare and social development, which is 14.4 per cent of its 2022 budget.

All these developments and more will be in the spotlight at Global Health 2022, which is being held under the patronage of the KSA Ministry of Health (MOH).

As the country’s leading healthcare exhibition, Global Health is returning for a live in-person edition from 09 to 11 October 2022 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Centre (RICEC). After running two successful online editions during the pandemic, the exhibition is back to offer the healthcare community in the region and beyond the opportunity to get together and witness the transformation taking place in KSA’s burgeoning healthcare sector.

Under the theme of ‘A new era in healthcare’, over 10,000 attendees are expected to visit the three-day event, with more than 250 companies from 30 countries exhibiting. As the largest gathering of healthcare professionals in KSA, Global Health offers an array of opportunities for visitors to connect with healthcare professionals, clinicians and policymakers, learn about the latest medical findings and trends, and network and do business with the global healthcare community.

The Global Health Congress will also return this year, and host five conferences, including four CME accredited tracks such as Public Health, Quality Healthcare, Future of Medical Labs and Radiology.

One of the most popular features of the congress is the Leaders’ Forum that aims to enable essential dialogue between thought leaders and government officials on achieving Saudi Vision 2030, driving the digitalisation of healthcare, access to medicines and technologies, and leadership and governance.

New additions to this year’s show will include the ‘Medical Lab Zone’, highlighting the most up-to-date medical laboratory innovations and technologies and the ‘Innov8 Talks’, showcasing the latest innovations in healthcare and aspiring start-ups. Through live product demonstrations, visitors will witness innovations coming to life and be part of game-changing industry conversations.

The event is being hosted by Informa Markets, organisers of well-known healthcare exhibitions such as Arab Health in the UAE and Florida International Medical Expo (FIME) in the U.S.

Solenne Singer from Informa Markets highlighted: “We are excited to be back in person and meet with KSA’s healthcare community. Established as a must-attend event in the Kingdom, Global Health attracts regional and international healthcare professionals who value the power of learning, face-to-face networking and business.

“Moreover, the event offers the perfect platform to source the latest products and challenge visitors through industry-leading conferences. We look forward to major investment opportunities being announced at the show with hospitals, governments and innovators looking to deliver the next generation of healthcare services.”

As part of Informa’s commitment to providing the highest hygiene and safety levels, the event will take place under the protocols introduced via the company’s Informa AllSecure health and safety mandate. The enhanced measures include 35 guidelines covering all aspects of cleaning and hygiene, social distancing measures, and the use of PPE, screening, and a track and trace in conjunction with local authorities.
