The 22nd edition of Medlab Middle East Congress, is taking place live, in-person from 6-9 February 2023, in Dubai with a 100% increase in exhibitor numbers. Co-hosted with Arab Health for the last two years, Medlab Middle East has more than 700 exhibitors displaying the latest laboratory innovations and technologies to an audience of over 20,000 visitors representing more than 180 countries throughout the show's four days.

The 2023 edition of Medlab Middle East, the MENA region’s largest medical laboratory exhibition and congress organized by Informa Markets (London, UK), has returned as a standalone event following unprecedented demand from exhibitors and visitors to attend the show. This year’s exhibition theme ‘paving the way for technological advancements and sustainability in laboratory medicine’ underscores the rate at which laboratory technology has advanced in recent years. In addition to a showcase of products ranging from high-performance solutions and advanced technology to affordable alternatives, Medlab Middle East is revealing a range of new and returning features.

Making its debut at the show is Labpreneur, which gathers the most exciting and promising medical laboratory start-ups from across the world as they actively address the unmet challenges and revolutionize the medical lab industry. The competition features the top 10 innovative early and middle-stage start-ups from across the world, pitching their ground-breaking ideas and battling on stage in front of an esteemed panel of judges, which includes investors, industry experts, and entrepreneurs. Sustainability is also in focus and is being highlighted during the Lab Sustainability Awards. The awards encourage action on various sustainable laboratory areas and link to one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with the winners announced during the last session of the “Sustainability in the lab” conference.

Medlab Middle East is also hosting the LabQ, an inter-college quiz competition focusing on the area of pathology and laboratory medicine for senior graduating college and university students majoring in medical laboratory sciences in the UAE. In addition, the scientific poster competition returning in 2023 is dedicated to helping grow the medical laboratory industry by providing a platform to gain recognition and be published. The winner gets the opportunity to speak at Medlab Asia 2023, which takes place in Bangkok, with flights and accommodation included.

The Medlab Middle East Congress also returns this year, providing education and solutions to advance laboratory skills and improve laboratory functions to over 5,000 conference delegates. With 13 conferences, the Congress is the largest CME-accredited multi-track medical laboratory congress globally, featuring 130+ local and international speakers. This year's conference program includes eight core lab conference tracks​, with a further four new additions addressing Point of Care Testing (POCT), Tech Advances and Clinical Impact, New Trends In Laboratory Medicine, Quality Management in the Lab, and Sustainability in the Lab.

“We have seen the demand for clinical laboratory services increase significantly in the last two years. As such, we’ve witnessed a surge in demand from visitors and exhibitors. COVID-19 undoubtedly put increased focus on the laboratory market. Subsequently, we have seen a wealth of new technology and innovation being adopted, which is driving automation and collaboration with the lab and critical external stakeholders,” said Tom Coleman, Exhibition Director for Inform Markets. “More generally, we have seen factors such as the rising prevalence of chronic illnesses and the resulting need for early diagnostic testing contributing to the growth in the size of the lab market. The speed of technological advances in raising productivity and cost savings will also be a key factor in driving the industry’s growth.”
