Arab Health and Medlab Middle East return to Dubai World Trade Center

Dubai, UAE: Arab Health and Medlab Middle East, the largest exhibitions for the healthcare and laboratory industry in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) are scheduled to return to Dubai World Trade Centre, June 21 to 24 this year under the theme, “United by Business.”

The events generated more than AED 3.7 billion worth of business during the 2020 edition of the show, a year-on-year increase of 3.7%. The exhibitions also contributed over AED 389 million to the Dubai economy through direct and indirect spending from visitors and exhibitors.

Furthermore, according to recent research by Informa Markets, 85% of healthcare and laboratory key visitors surveyed stated they would like to attend live events again. This underscores the pent-up demand to attend and support the local economy when visiting Arab Health and Medlab Middle East this year.

Wouter Molman, Executive Vice President for Informa Markets, said their survey results “clearly indicate an appetite to return to a physical event format, with face-to-face networking at the forefront of what our key audiences are looking for.”

“Based on our research, we can safely expect both events to attract 61,000 visitors, roughly half of which will attend the in-person event, with the other half attending the event online,” Molman said.

“The UAE government’s commitment to vaccinate the population and facilitate a safe environment for people to come together while adhering to all safety protocols has been a defining factor in the confidence to get back to business. We are in one of the few countries in the world where this is possible as a result of the incredible government work,” he said.

A host of government initiatives since the onset of COVID-19 has fast-tracked the country’s  recovery and permitted the opening of hotels and exhibitions before elsewhere in the world.  

In the month preceding the live event in Dubai, both Arab Health and Medlab Middle East will host a series of dedicated online focus days to allow participants to find the correct contacts to meet and do business, with a showcase of the latest products and technological advancements, and a host of focused informative sessions drawing in medical and healthcare trade professionals from the region and beyond.

The online event platforms for Arab Health and Medlab Middle East will launch on May 23, 2021 and will remain available to participants until July 22, 2021.
