Arab Health 2023 is expected to draw more than 3,000 companies from 70 countries to the Dubai World Trade Centre next week.

According to an exhibitor survey, AED 2.8 billion in healthcare industry-related contracts were secured last year at Arab Health 2022. The exhibition plays an integral role in supporting United Arab Emirates (UAE) government initiatives such as "Make it in the Emirates", according to Informa Markets.

The theme for this year's edition of Arab Health is "Innovation and Sustainability in Healthcare."

"Arab Health has an instrumental role in bringing together regional and international policy drivers, thought leaders, and healthcare professionals through trade and innovation," said Ross Williams, an exhibition director at Informa Markets. "This helps to address healthcare challenges but also showcases the initiatives undertaken by the government in the UAE to support the entire healthcare ecosystem, be that through ease of access to set-up in the region or by providing a platform for the adoption of innovative new technologies and creating partnerships with leading hospitals and medical technology companies."

Arab Health 2023 will feature nine product sectors, showcasing the latest technology and innovation in disposables, orthopedics, healthcare and general services, imaging, medical devices, IT, wellness and prevention, and infrastructure and assets.

Rounding out the product sectors is the Transformation Zone, which will include startup companies and innovators showcasing their latest products and talking about the future at the Transformation Talks session, as well as Product Showcase and the popular Innov8 Talks, which will provide startups and entrepreneurs from around the world with the opportunity to present their healthcare innovation to a panel of industry experts and potential investors. 

A total of 10 continuing medical education (CME) conferences will take place during the four days of Arab Health 2023, welcoming an anticipated 3,200 delegates and 550 international speakers. Internal medicine, pediatrics, and anesthesia and pain management are new additions to the conferences this year. Popular returning tracks include obs & gyne, orthopedics, total radiology, surgery, emergency medicine, and quality management.

Under sustainability themes, Informa Markets has introduced the "Better Stands" initiative, which will encourage exhibitors to move away from disposable exhibition stands and ensure all core elements, such as walls, archways, and counters, are constructed in a way that can be reused. Arab Health will also be powered by renewable energy.
