Arab Health, the leading medical equipment exhibition in the Middle East showcased the latest innovations in healthcare, in its post-pandemic edition. The event took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 21-24 June under the theme 'United by Business', bringing the industry together to learn, network and trade. Established 46 years ago, Arab Health provides a platform for the world’s leading manufacturers, wholesalers and distributors to meet the medical and scientific community in the Middle East and subcontinent.

From state-of-the-art imaging equipment to the most cost-effective disposables; developments in surgery to advances in prosthetics, all the latest medical technologies and innovative solutions were on display at the show. This year’s edition welcomed thousands of international healthcare companies and hosted over 51,000 attendees from 170 countries in-person and online during the four-day showcase. A range of strict precautionary and preventive measures were implemented to ensure that the event was held safely.

Furthermore, bringing together influencers from all major medical disciplines, under the theme of ‘Looking Ahead. Embracing Innovation’, Arab Health hosted nine CME accredited medical conferences and three health conferences on innovation and technology. The 2021 conferences included Total radiology, Surgery, Public Health, Orthopedics, PMR, Pharma & Drug Discovery, ENT, Digital Health & Innovation and much more. At the inaugural Pharma and Drug Discovery Conference held on the opening day, Qutaiba Al Manaseer, Government Affairs Director, Middle East and Africa, AstraZeneca, presented the session Oxford University and AstraZeneca partnership towards broad and equitable access to COVID-19 Vaccine.

“Our show theme is 'United by Business', which is indicative of the pent-up demand within the industry to get back to some form of normality and start doing business once again,” said Wouter Molman, Executive Vice President for Informa Markets. “There is undoubtedly confidence and willingness from exhibitors and visitors to get back to the show floor and attend conferences, not just to meet, learn and to do business, but to share and develop pioneering healthcare delivery solutions after what has been one of the longest periods of absence we’ve seen in a generation. Fortunately, we’re able to facilitate this demand thanks to the vaccination program, which is seeing a remarkable development in light of the huge support and potential provided by the UAE government.”
