Arab Health happened in January 26-29, 2015. 42 Brazilian companies participated at the event supported by the project named Brazilian Health Devices, which is promoted by the Brazilian Industry Association of Medical Equipment, Dental, Hospital and Laboratory (ABIMO) and Brazilian Agency for Export and Investment Promotion (Apex-Brasil).
According to ABIMO, Arab Health is now known to be the second biggest healthcare trade fair in the world and the biggest in the Middle East. There were more than 4 thousand exhibitors, 120 thousand guests from more than 150 countries. The bottom line is Brazilian companies were not doing business exclusively with the Middle East, since the fair has become a global networking venue. The companies are expecting a US$ 21 million in business as a result of the fair.
