MUSCAT: Oman­expo, Oman’s big­gest ex­hi­bi­tions and con­fer­ences or­gan­iser, held a press con­fer­ence for its health and med­i­cal show, Oman Health Ex­hi­bi­tion & Con­fer­ence, at Crowne Plaza Muscat yes­ter­day. The show’s 7th edi­tion is slated from Oc­to­ber 9 to 11 at the new Oman Con­ven­tion & Ex­hi­bi­tion Cen­tre.

The three-day an­nual in­ter­na­tional event, recog­nised as the flag­ship health and med­i­cal event in Oman, will once again make its mark in the health­care scene by bring­ing in close to 200 ex­hibit­ing part­ners from 18 coun­tries.

This year’s edi­tion will also see the show’s first-time as­so­ci­a­tion with Turkey as a coun­try part­ner, who will of­fer health­care and med­i­cal ser­vices from 20 lead­ing health estab­lish­ments. A note­wor­thy fea­ture will be the In­dia Health Plus pav­il­ion, which will pro­mote top med­i­cal con­sul­tants and spe­cial­ists from more than 30 lead­ing hos­pi­tals in In­dia. Adding value to the ex­hi­bi­tion are the na­tional pavil­ions of Ger­many, Thai­land and Iran, now an emerg­ing pre­ferred med­i­cal des­ti­na­tion for its world­class treat­ment and ser­vices, which will fea­ture con­sul­tants and med­i­cal spe­cial­ists rep­re­sent­ing over 30 hos­pi­tals.

Con­cur­rent to the ex­hi­bi­tion is a three-day sci­en­tific con­fer­ence, or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with the Min­istry of Health and the Oman Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion.

The con­fer­ence will fea­ture a no­table line-up of highly ac- claimed lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional speak­ers who will fore­ground is­sues, chal­lenges and case stud­ies in medicine, surgery, pae­di­atrics, ENT/oph­thal­mol­ogy, gy­nae­col­ogy, emer­gency and trauma.

As tes­ti­mony to the show’s value, cred­i­bil­ity and sta­tus as a sig­nif­i­cant event for the sec­tor, it has en­listed the spon­sor­ship sup­port of Sidra Med­i­cal & Re­search Cen­ter, one of the rep­utable bio­med­i­cal re­search cen­tres in Qatar; Sri Ra­machan­dra Med­i­cal Cen­tre, one of the best multi-spe­cialty hos­pi­tals in In­dia and one of the largest pri­vate health­care fa­cil­i­ties in South Asia; Aster DM Health­care, one of the largest and fastest-grow­ing con­glom­er­ates in the Mena re­gion; and the Min­istry of Health, Turkey. Oman’s health­care sec­tor is ear­marked by the gov­ern­ment as one of the pri­or­ity and po­ten­tial sec­tors for for­eign di­rect in­vest­ment un­der its Health Vi­sion 2050. The Min­istry of Health is cur­rently em­bark­ing on im­por­tant health projects all over the coun­try and is open­ing doors for new mar­kets and in­vest­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in Oman. It has al­lo­cated US$3.4 bil­lion of its ex­pen­di­ture on the health­care sec­tor, which is seen to rise by 12.9 per cent a year un­til 2020.
