DIT: Arab Health UK seminars

01-24-2022 7:00 AM - 01-27-2022 8:00 AM


The UK Department for International Trade (DIT), is delighted to be attending Arab Health in January and we would like to invite BCC AD to meet with us at the show.

In the UK, the government recently launched its UK Life Sciences Vision setting out a 10-year strategy for the sector to solve some of the biggest healthcare problems of our generation, including cancer and dementia.

The healthcare challenges all nations currently face is growing. One of our ambitions for this show is to share our learnings and debate these key issues, and the role this is playing in defining the future of healthcare.

We will be promoting the best of British innovations at the show and we hope you can join us.

Our Programme

DIT is hosting a programme of activity at the show: hosting a number of seminars at local hotel venues; hosting one to one business meetings; and bringing a delegation of NHS Trusts to the show, to explore new opportunities and collaborate with the region.

Our programme has a number of NHS and other government senior representatives from the UK and DIT market advisers from the Middle East and other countries in attendance.

At Dubai Expo 2020, from the 26 January, we are running a special healthcare focused week on the UK Pavilion. Our Expo team would be pleased to greet you to our special healthcare week. This provides you with even more opportunities to uncover a host of interesting discussions and debates.

Combining with the DIT activities on the UK pavilion stand, is the ABHI surgical simulations and their state-of-the art simulated operating theatre. It celebrates collaborations between healthcare providers, clinicians and healthcare technology
companies, allowing visitors to watch the UK’s best surgeons in action. Watch the latest developments the UK Healthcare sector has to offer by leading providers: Royal Brompton Hospital, Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, Bupa Cromwell Hospital and HCA Healthcare.

We would be delighted to meet with private and public healthcare providers. The UK is very interested to showcase UK innovations and work with the GCC region in continued collaboration.

Please do book meetings in advance or visit us on the UK Pavilion stand at the show.

A 60-minute session that will explore how health systems can adopt technology to empower citizens to selfcare, improving the overall prevention and public health objectives of the system. Health systems cannot cope with being reactive to those who are getting progressively sicker.

Systems need to move upstream and introduce interventions and touch points earlier in the people's journey of care. This includes adoption of medical technology or digital health.
