UK Innovations Launched at Arab Health 2020

The Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) has revealed some of what it describes as ground-breaking digital health technologies, services and products being launched at the ABHI UK Pavilion at Arab Health 2020, taking place in Dubai from 27 – 30 January.


It’s that time of year again when MedTech heads for the Middle East’s largest medical exhibition. Taking place from 27th to 30th January 2020 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, the event is once again expected to attract over 100,000 attendees. As such it presents significant opportunities for companies to connect with buyers and clinicians in the region.

Each year, the UK’s leading health technology trade association (ABHI) runs its own pavilion. The aim is to provide an international launch pad for UK companies wishing to introduce their ground-breaking innovations to the thriving Middle Eastern healthcare market. ABHI and the UK Pavilion will be located in Hall 2,  stand G30.
