IN line with “Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030”, Global Health Exhibition will provide a business platform for 10,000 attendees to make inroads into the kingdom’s healthcare market.

Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, the organisers of Arab Health, in collaboration with XS Conferences and Exhibitions, has announced the launch of Global Health Exhibition - Saudi Arabia’s healthcare platform for the global market to network with the Saudi healthcare sector pioneers and officials.

Taking place from September 10 to 12 at the Riyadh International Convention and Exhibition Center in Riyadh, more than 10,000 industry professionals are expected to explore +500 Saudi-based and international exhibiting companies showcasing the latest advances in health services, pharmaceuticals, training and education, and medical device technologies.

According to Peter Hall, president, Informa Middle East: “Diminishing market access barriers for foreign investment, coupled with huge investment in healthcare infrastructure, has positioned Saudi Arabia as a top-tier market for medical device manufacturers, services providers, and dealers and distributers from across the globe. Through the launch of Global Health Exhibition, companies now have an opportunity to promote their products and services to a whole new audience of buyers and make significant inroads into the Saudi market.”

As the largest and fastest growing healthcare market in the region, healthcare spend in the kingdom is estimated to reach $40 by 2020. Currently, 87 of the 150 major healthcare infrastructure projects in the GCC due for completion in 2021 are in Saudi Arabia.

Commenting on the launch of Global Health Exhibition, Meshal Al Rubiaan, Ministry of Health spokesman said: “The objectives set out by the ‘National Transformation Program 2020’ has enabled the Ministry to cultivate a favourable atmosphere to attract private healthcare providers and investors from abroad. We will continue to work closely with our strategic partners to support important economic trade platforms such as Global Health Exhibition that promote and facilitate the achievement of that vision.”
