Arab Health to feature 130 French firms
DUBAI, January 8, 2017
Arab Health 2017, the Middle East’s largest healthcare exhibition in Duba, UAE will feature 130 companies from France, covering a number of key areas of the healthcare sector.
The event runs from January 30 to February 2 at Dubai World Trade Center.
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 pavilion, 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 pavilion will be spread across two halls totaling 1,330 sq m of exhibition space.
Marc Cagnard, Middle East director at Business France, stated: “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 included contamination, 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 gynecology, orthopedics, 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 pavilionat 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
