Healthcare Business Seminar


The healthcare business seminar at Arab Health focused on the current healthcare
business environment and future landscape in the UAE and KSA.

Each day of the exhibition highlighted a specific country that is making an impact in the medical devices and products industry. For each of the country highlights, attendees had the opportunity to meet with them on their dedicated day in the Dealers & Distributors Zone to discuss how they can facilitate new business relations.

The seminar was brought to you in partnership with Deloitte and Touche, RAKEZ and Right Health.

This event is now closed. Check in with us on the Arab Health website in the coming months, to see what we have in store for next year.
