- 130 companies to showcase country’s expertise at the tradeshow
- Three major French hospitals to make their first appearance
United Arab Emirates, December 29th 2016: France’s global expertise in healthcare is set to take the centre stage at the Arab Health 2017 as 130 companies from the country, covering a number of key areas of the sector, put on a strong display at the Middle East’s largest healthcare exhibition in Dubai from January 30 to February 2, 2017.
Building on the success of the country’s previous participation in the exhibition, 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 square meters of exhibition space.
The French healthcare system has long enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best in the world, and its healthcare industry is supported by a number of innovative companies, with 94% of them in the small and medium enterprises sector. France’s offering covers crucial areas such as diagnostic imaging, disposable devices, implants, prostheses and ortheses. Innovative devices are being used in promising sectors like surgery to treat pathologies linked to ageing and aesthetic surgery.
France has been winning the healthcare market share, consolidating its ranking as the 7th major healthcare supplier thanks to the positive image of its products and its strong reputation in research and development.
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 include decontamination, 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 pavilion at Arab Health 2017 will highlight the latest French innovations and technical expertise that meet the demands of the fast-growing local market.
