Dubai, October 14, 2010
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) and Dubai Biotechnology and Research Park (DuBiotech), both members of Tecom Investments, will take part in an upcoming healthcare event in Abu Dhabi.
Organised by IIR Middle East, the fourth edition of the Abu Dhabi Medical Congress will run from October 17 to 19 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, and bring together leading international healthcare companies to showcase the latest products and services.
“Over the past five years, the UAE has registered substantial growth in the health and life sciences sectors,” said Dr Ayesha Abdullah, managing director of TECOM Investments Sciences Cluster.
“At DHCC alone, we currently have over 2,000 licensed healthcare professionals and 90 facilities providing a wide range of health and health-related services. At the same time, DuBiotech hosts more than 70 national and international companies from the life sciences sector.”
“International interest from these sectors in the region remains high as reflected by the number and status of companies we continue to welcome. The interest is also reflected on the size of this edition of Abu Dhabi Medical Congress, which we are delighted to be supporting. DHCC and DuBiotech will be exhibiting in the Patient Safety Area of the exhibition, one of the largest areas of the Congress,” she added.
Simon Page, group director of IIR Middle East, said: “Now in its fourth year, the Abu Dhabi Medical Congress occupies 5,000 sq m and aims to create the best global gathering in the Middle East for its chosen sectors of the world's healthcare industry, facilitating a broad spectrum of business opportunities for those engaged within these industry sectors.”
“As major players in the region, we are delighted to have the support of Dubai Healthcare City and DuBiotech for the Congress, which is the fastest growing event of its kind,” Page added.
Running alongside the exhibition, the Abu Dhabi Medical Congress 2010 will feature a major CME-accredited conference programme, which has already elicited the interest of more than 1,700 delegates, who are keen to hear from over 250 regional and international speakers. – TradeArabia News Service
