Kenneth Seymens, the Managing Partner of MedicaIQ and the Health 2.0 Middle East Partner was recently asked, "Why convene a healthcare conference a day before and the first day of Arab Health?" He replied, "We get that question a lot. Health 2.0 isn't just another healthcare conference, after thirteen successful conferences across the globe, Health 2.0 has become the place to see and be seen for global leaders in health care technology and innovation. Arab Health is an excellent medical equipment exhibition. However, it's not a health innovation show, full stop."
