Medlab Series to be held in five more cities
Dubai, December 23, 2012
Arab Health Exhibition and Congress has announced the launch of its international Medlab Series that will take place in five global cities.
The events will follow the Medlab Middle East Exhibition & Congress that will take place during the 38th edition of Arab Health from January 28-31, 2013 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The new events will take place in Riyadh, Johannesburg, Nigeria, Singapore and Sao Paolo.
The major driving factor behind Arab Health’s push for the expansion of the Medlab series of events is the expected in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry boom in emerging countries such as China, India, Russia, Brazil and the African continent driven by government funding and improved healthcare facilities, a statement said.
According to Simon Page, managing director, Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, organisers of Arab Health: “As an integral part of the Arab Health Exhibition and Congress, Medlab is the leading medical laboratory and technology event in the Middle East which attracted more than 15 per cent of the overall visitors to Arab Health in 2012.”
Medlab Middle East, the next event in the series taking place at Arab Health 2013, is aiming to provide a platform for an ‘Exhibition with Education’ which offers the medical technology field with an opportunity to experience new product ranges, material and other high-tech healthcare solutions focusing specifically on the latest innovations in diagnostic and laboratory equipment, hospital management and bio technology.
In addition to this, the estimated 20,000 attendees can participate in a vast range of CME accredited conferences and workshops. Exhibitors this year at Medlab Middle East include industry leaders such as Roche Diagnostics, Abbott Diagnostics, Beckman Coulter, National Reference Laboratory, Terumo BCT, Advance Technology Company, Gulf Scientific Est. for Laboratories and Siemens Diagnostics. – TradeArabia News Service
