The world is suffering from the aftermath of the novel COVID-19 which makes Arab Health 2021 significant as it set out to unite the healthcare and medical laboratory community once again by working side by side and getting the world through this tough time.
The live event which started on Monday, June 21st and will end on Friday, June 25th, 2021 at the Dubai World Trade Centre houses healthcare and trade professionals from over 150 countries with the theme of ‘United By Business, Driving The Industry Forward’.
The event set out to reinvigorate the healthcare sector following the challenges of the pandemic with more than 20,000 healthcare, laboratory and trade professionals in attendance.
Arab Health 2021 which is co-located with Medlab Middle East, is an hybrid event with a two-month online event campaign that has provided AI matchmaking and industry-specific content to thousands of international participants, all while supporting visitors locally to schedule face-to-face meetings at the live, in-person shows.
The Executive Vice President of Healthcare Informa Markets, Wouter Molman said: ”ArNJab Health and Medlab Middle East have been instrumental in supporting the UAE’s ambitions to become a healthcare hub for trade and business. The opportunity to host a physical event is testament to the UAE Government’s vaccination strategy, while also underscoring the appetite of those from the healthcare industry to come together to network, discuss the industry’s future, and do business.”
”The past 18 months have been difficult for everyone from both a personal and business perspective; however, the healthcare industry has worked tirelessly to overcome these challenges, and we are thankful to everyone who has contributed to steering us out of the pandemic. We now look to the future with renewed optimism thanks to the advances that have been made within the sector,” added Molman
