“We are looking forward to attending this year’s event as part of the wider Midlands Engine trade delegation, sharing our knowledge and developing new relationships. Arab Health is a unique event and an opportunity for us to meet with key professionals.

“Jake and I will be arranging more than twenty meetings over the four days we are there, and although exhausting, it’s a great way to build and maintain relationships with customers and specifiers that we wouldn’t otherwise be able to have face-to-face meetings with.

“We will also explore new market opportunities and gain valuable insights from industry experts about the future of the global healthcare sector by attending a number of seminars and forums.”

We are delighted to be attending Arab Health with companies like Midland Lead, it is the experience that they bring that make our presence at the event so strong.”
