The 2021 edition of Medlab Middle East, the MENA region’s largest medical laboratory exhibition and congress, took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 21-24 June, bringing the global healthcare community together under the show theme of ‘United by Business’.

A host of countries, including the UK, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Israel, Korea, Poland, Spain and the US, participated in the event. A range of key laboratory and trade professionals from across the region attended the live and in-person event. It featured a range of keynote speeches and scientific lectures, industry briefings, product demonstrations and networking opportunities, as well as a series of pre-arranged one-to-one meetings, with an emphasis on creating lasting relationships.

Underscoring the confidence within the industry and the increased demand from laboratory professionals to participate in a physical event, several companies and health authorities exhibited at the event. These included the UAE Ministry for Health and Prevention, the College of American Pathologists, Abbott Laboratories, Horiba, Randox Laboratories, Euroimmun, BioVender Group, Seegene, Stago and Erba Group.

Similar to last year, before travel restrictions and country-wide lockdowns, the event attracted over 23,000 professional visitors from over 140 countries and over 3,800 delegates. A total of 14 country pavilions were present at the 2021 edition of the show. The event featured eight Continuing Medical Education (CME) conferences during the live and in-person event and as part of the show's online element. New to the 2021 conference program was a dedicated focus on COVID-19 which addressed the latest scientific findings on the virus and discussed its impact on health in the region.

These were complemented by returning accredited conferences: Laboratory Management, Clinical Chemistry, Clinical Microbiology, Histopathology, Molecular & Genomic Diagnostics, Haematology and Blood Transfusion. A series of medical speciality days have also been scheduled, with experts presenting the latest advancements in specific clinical specialties, including multi-omics, genetics, and stem cells. Medlab Middle East also hosted a range of dedicated online focus days until July 22 to allow participants to continue to do business as well as featured over 180 educational sessions to choose from. The online event platform for both Arab Health and Medlab Middle East was launched on 23 May and will remain available until 22 July.
