In line with the Medlab Middle East theme, ‘paving the way for technological advancements and sustainability in laboratory medicine’, various exhibitors will showcase their latest products in fields such as disposables, imaging, IT systems, and medical equipment, among others, contributing to the rise in exhibitor numbers. Apart from a full line-up of exhibitors on the show floor, Medlab Middle East will launch its Hosted Buyer program, which will match exhibitors with senior decision-makers belonging to the healthcare industry. The show floor will also offer a series of seminars and workshops to allow visitors to learn first-hand about the latest medical laboratory innovations from the exhibitors.

At Medlab Middle East, the newly-launched Labpreneur competition will invite promising diagnostic start-up companies to pitch groundbreaking ideas that can transform the laboratory market to a panel of experts who will select the winner on the final day of the exhibition. This year, the Medlab Middle East Congress will also return, providing education and solutions to advance laboratory skills and improve laboratory functions to over 5,000 conference delegates. With 12 conferences, the Congress is the largest CME-accredited multi-track medical laboratory congress in the world, featuring 130+ local and international speakers. This year's conference program will include eight core lab conference tracks, with 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. For the first time, Medlab Middle East will showcase a new Entertainment zone – The Village, which will provide a more relaxed environment to the attendees for networking.

“It has been an incredible year of growth for the medical laboratory industry and Medlab Middle East. This year we will welcome 650 exhibitors from 180 countries, many of whom are making their debut at the event by highlighting the latest technological advances on the market,” said Tom Coleman, Group Exhibition Director, Informa Markets Healthcare. “We are also welcoming back several of our Asian counterparts who have been unable to travel due to restrictions in their home countries as well as stalwarts of the event Abbott, Biomerieux, Beckman Coulter, Randox, illumina, bioMérieux, Randox and Mindray, amongst others.”
