For the first time ever, the Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) is to host the UK Pavilion at the Global Health Exhibition in Saudi Arabia to help strengthen collaboration between the two regions.
Global Health Exhibition is the largest annual healthcare gathering in the country.
This year’s event is set to attract 15,000 professional visitors, featuring 120 speakers and 164 exhibitors from 23 countries over three days.
Taking place from 29-31 October 29-31 in the Saudi capital of Riyadh, the UK Pavilion will provide a dedicated space within the Global Health Exhibition where UK health tech companies can showcase their expertise, strengthen their presence in the market and establish partnerships with key stakeholders.
The UK Pavilion will be located next to the Transformation Zone, ensuring maximum visibility and footfall.
The Pavilion offers a chance for UK health tech companies to connect with prospective partners and expand their reach in the Saudi Arabian market and beyond.
Michelle Michelucci, Head of International Events, ABHI, commented: “Recent years have witnessed Saudi Arabia making monumental strides in enhancing its healthcare infrastructure.
“We are delighted, therefore, to be offering a UK Pavilion within Saudi Arabia, at Global Health Exhibition 2023.”
The pandemic’s impact has accelerated the adoption of digital solutions and innovations, giving rise to a booming health tech ecosystem in Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, government initiatives to modernise the healthcare industry have further fuelled the growth of this market, creating a favourable environment for innovation and investment.
As a result, the health tech is currently one of the fastest-growing sectors in Saudi Arabia.
Healthcare accounts for 16.4 per cent of Saudi Arabia’s budget expenditure, and the government is encouraging private sector participation in this space.
There are plans to set up 20 healthcare clusters by 2030, presenting exciting opportunities for UK suppliers to support such an ambition.
UK HealthTech innovators looking to increase their international trade to Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East are encouraged to act fast to secure their spot amongst the UK’s finest industry players at this year’s event.
