Three major French hospitals will make their first
appearance at Arab Health

Arab Health to feature 130 French companies

DUBAI, January 29, 2017

Arab Health 2017, the Middle East’s largest healthcare exhibition upcoming in Dubai, UAE will feature 130 French companies covering a number of key areas of the sector.

Arab Health runs from January 30 to February 2 at Dubai International Exhibition and Convention Centre.

France has a bigger presence this year with a quarter of the companies from the country attending the event for the first time. Significantly, the France pavilions, organized by Business France, will host for the first time three major hospitals – Paris Saint Joseph Hospital, Saint Grégoire Private Hospital in Rennes & American Hospital in Paris – which are specialized in disciplines that meet the needs of the Gulf region.

Other participants include manufacturers of high-end hospital furniture and equipment as well as companies with cutting-edge knowledge in decontamination and waste management. The massive French pavilions will be spread across two halls totalling 1,330 sq m of exhibition space.

The French healthcare system has long enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best in the world, and its healthcare industry is supported by a number of innovative companies, with 94 per cent of them in the small and medium enterprises sector. France’s offering covers crucial areas such as diagnostic imaging, disposable devices, implants, prostheses and ortheses. Innovative devices are being used in promising sectors like surgery to treat pathologies linked to ageing and aesthetic surgery.

Marc Cagnard, Middle East director at Business France, said: “France is known for its world class healthcare system, and has played a leading role as a pioneer in the medical field. Highlighting the importance of France as a major contributor to the medical industry, pharmaceutical giants such as Sanofi, Bayer AG and AbbVie have chosen to make the country their home. The France pavilion at the Arab Health exhibition this year features a much larger number of companies, reflecting our keen desire to contribute to the development of the healthcare system in the region.”

Taking into account sanitary issues faced by hospitals, majority of the French companies attending Arab Health 2017 are involved in the fight against nosocomial, contagious and parasitic diseases. Their areas of specialization include decontamination, sterilization, ventilation, air treatment, oxygen generation, equipment disinfection and waste management.

The three hospitals represented at the exhibition will showcase their expertise in the latest research technology, multidisciplinary care and high-quality treatment techniques in areas of significance to the Arab region such as obesity and diabetes treatments, cardiology and vascular surgery, oncology, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, sports medicine, healthcare assessments, etc.

With the help of regional partners such as Centreco-Centrexport, Lille Eurasanté and, for the first time, Bretagne Commerce International and Medicalps (the Grenoble-Isère healthcare technology cluster), each of which will be represented by about ten companies, the France pavilions at Arab Health 2017 will highlight the latest French innovations and technical expertise that meet the demands of the fast-growing local market. – TradeArabia News Service
