U.S. Health and Medical Leaders Look to Build on Bilateral, Professional Partnerships During Arab Health 2017

  • A wide scope of United States science, technology and innovation for hospitals, clinics and practitioners will be on display in Dubai
  • More than 330 American exhibitors from more than 30 states are exhibiting at the show — 270 in the U.S. International Pavilion in Halls 1, 2, 5 and Za’abeel 6
  • Highlights include new diagnostic, imaging and monitoring devices; hygiene and safety solutions; strategies for improving patient outcomes, professional skills and institutional performance

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates and WALDWICK, N.J. / January 17, 2017 — U.S. experts and expertise, deeply connected as valued partners year-round in the booming U.A.E. health and medical community, are looking to expand bilateral trade, innovation and professional workforce relationships during Arab Health, January 30 through February 2, 2017 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

More than 330 American companies, facilities and interests — including more than 10 state economic development groups — are participating in this year’s show. From personal care and safety products to over-the-counter remedies, specialized medical devices, equipment and treatment strategies, U.S. exhibitors in Dubai represent a wide scope of America’s smartest science, technology and innovation.

The centerpiece of the national effort is the U.S. International Pavilion, organized since 1996 by Kallman Worldwide, Inc., in coordination with numerous government agencies, including the departments of Commerce and State. Comprised of nearly 3,000 sqm in Halls 1, 2, 5 and Za’abeel 6, the Pavilion is a well-established destination for buyers looking for an efficient way to meet a critical mass of leading suppliers, an on-site business center for U.S. exhibitors looking to maximize their exposure and impact at the event, and a networking forum for all to share ideas and insights.

The Pavilion will host 270 exhibitors, more than 85% of the total American contingent, 70 for the first time at the event. Ranging from publicly traded stalwarts to privately held small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), U.S. exhibitors know Arab Health is a premier event for initiating or strengthening business and professional relationships in the Middle East.

“When U.S. companies commit to exhibit at Arab Health, they’re saying they believe in the power of this event to attract real business prospects and customers. The steady growth and diversification of the show speaks for itself,” said Kallman Worldwide President and CEO, Tom Kallman. “As the organizer of the U.S International Pavilion for more than 20 years — even before the launch of Dubai Healthcare City — our team is proud to help exhibitors capitalize on this influential international business opportunity and contribute to the extraordinary level of investment in medical infrastructure and innovation in the U.A.E.“

“Over the past 20 years, Kallman Worldwide has been invaluable in helping us develop and deliver an exceptional Arab Health experience,” said Simon Page, Managing Director of Informa Life Sciences Division. “America’s participation in the event is always highly anticipated by the health and medical community in the Middle East, and exhibitors in the U.S. International Pavilion consistently present the world-class partnerships, insights and professionalism our attendees are looking for.”

In addition to organizing the national Pavilion, Kallman is inviting show attendees to visit U.S. exhibitors with its “Ask America” advocacy campaign. That message will be placed prominently on site, integrated into hospitality and VIP events during the show, and promoted in social media (follow on Twitter @kallmanEWC).

“The United States is among the biggest international exhibitors at Arab Health because it’s the world’s biggest health and medical supplier, but that’s no guarantee buyers will look to work with U.S. companies over others,” said Kallman. “As the organizer of the U.S. International Pavilion, we have a responsibility to advocate not only for our exhibitors, but for our nation in this highly competitive global marketplace.

“We invite every Arab Health visitor to ask America because we are listening,” he said. “Whether as manufacturers, suppliers, advisors or development partners, the United States supports the region’s health and medical professionals, and is dedicated to helping them improve patient outcomes and overall quality of life.”
