Arab Health is the largest gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in the MENA region, held annually in the last week of January. In 2017 it welcomed more than 96,000 visitors from 159 countries, highlighting its strength at the Middle East and North Africa’s leading exhibition in the healthcare industry.

Why join the Midlands Engine delegation?

The Midlands is at the cutting-edge of the UK life sciences sector and a priority sector for the Midlands Engine. As part of the delegation you will have use of the facilities on the Midlands Engine stand. This includes communal meeting space, access to internet and refreshments. 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.
