Expo 2020 Dubai to highlight healthcare innovations such as VR and robotics

Expo 2020 Dubai will organize a series of 9 medical conferences and specialized events during the six-month-long event.

The events – which will be held at the co-located Dubai Exhibition Centre – will focus on high-tech healthcare innovations including virtual reality, robotics, paediatric, orthopaedic and surgery technology, as well as 3D printing and wearable health-tech.

The conferences will be organised by the Dubai-based Medetarian Conference Organizing MCO, which will lease a cumulative 160,000 sq m of space.

“The 9 cutting-edge medical conferences and specialist events that will be hosted at DEC during Expo 2020, under this significant agreement with MCO, will serve as an invaluable addition to the UAE’s medical landscape, offering an opportunity for Expo 2020’s international visitors and participants to engage in ground-breaking discussions regarding the global healthcare sector,” said Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, the executive director of the Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau.

MCO’s CEO, Dr. Mohammed Abuelkhair, added that “Expo 2020 Dubai is a great opportunity for conference organizers such as MCO to take on new initiatives and build something unique for the future.”

Dubai is already hosting to a number of high-level healthcare and medical-related conferences, including the yearly Arab Health event.
