His HighnessSheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum said: “The organisation of Arab Heath and Medlab Middle East Exhibition and Congress 2021 as an in-person event reflects the leadership role Dubai is playing in the recovery of the international business events sector. The presence of industry leaders and professionals from across the global healthcare industry highlights the confidence they have in Dubai, which has emerged as one of the world’s safest venues for international events. With reliable high-quality healthcare playing a major role in the recovery of the worldwide economy, the organisation of the exhibition assumes particular significance. The event also signifies Dubai’s emergence as a major global destination for world-class healthcare and a hub for innovation in this vital sector.”

A total of 1,500 exhibitors from 62 countries will be showcasing the latest innovations and technologies as the healthcare sector bounces back from the repercussions of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Commenting on the opening of the exhibition, Wouter Molman, Executive Vice President for Informa Markets, said: “As the largest exhibitions for the healthcare and laboratory industry in the MENA region, we have an integral role in developing the healthcare sector at both a regional level and also globally.

“Last year, Arab Health and Medlab Middle East generated more than AED 3.7 billion worth of business during the 2020 edition show, denoting a 3.7% year-on-year increase. The exhibitions also contributed millions to the Dubai economy through direct and indirect spending from visitors and exhibitors.

“The past 18 months have impacted every sector of business in the world, none more so than the healthcare industry. Having the opportunity to return to a live, in-person event will be instrumental in supporting recovery.”

The opening day of the event saw the Ministry of Health and Prevention, the Emirates Health Services Establishment, the Dubai Health Authority and the Abu Dhabi Department of Health signing a bulk purchase agreement for medicines and medical supplies. The agreement aims to enhance cooperation between the signatories in the procurement and purchasing of medicines and medical supplies in line with applied policies and legislations, as well as ensure the efficiency of the supply chain and reduce cost.
