Midlands Engine Market Visit: Arab Health 2019

Develop your business and see what your competitors are doing in the Middle East.

Arab Health is the largest gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in the MENA region, held annually in the last week of January. In 2018 it welcomed more than 84,400 visitors from 160+ countries, highlighting its strength as the Middle East and North Africa’s leading exhibition in the healthcare industry.

Why join the Midlands Engine delegation?

As part of the delegation you will have access to the Midlands Engine Product Showcase to promote and display your products or services at the heart of the UK Pavilion. The showcase is designed for companies who are new to the exhibition and the region, or those who are looking to increase their exports to the Middle East and the North African region primarily.

You will also have use of the Midlands Engine stand. The stand can be used as a venue for client meetings and is an excellent opportunity for both first time and regular visitors alike to make maximum use of their time at the show.
