Expo 2020 Dubai has announced that it will host a series of 10 medical conferences and specialised events at the co-located Dubai Exhibition Centre (DEC). The events are part of the organisation's commitment to fostering healthcare innovations and growing the UAE's knowledge-based economy.

The events will be organised during the peak six months of Expo 2020 by Medetarian Conference Organizing (MCO), a Dubai-based medical conference and consumer events specialist, according to WAM.

They include a Virtual Reality (VR) and Robotics Expo, alongside pediatric, orthopaedic and surgery conferences. New events focusing on technological advances such as VR, artificial intelligence (AI) robotics, 3D Printing and wearable technology will also be featured.

In light of the 10 signed contracts between DEC and MCO, which will see the latter lease a cumulative 160,000 sqm of space, Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, Executive Director, Expo 2020 Dubai Bureau, hosted MCO CEO, Dr Mohammed Abuelkhair.

Together they discussed the vision for hosting cutting edge medical conferences and expos in the UAE -- especially during Expo 2020, the largest event ever staged in the Arab World -- and the role of similar shows in fostering new scientific networks and building the knowledge-based economy.

Najeeb Mohammed Al-Ali, executive director, Expo 2020 Bureau, said, "The 10 cutting-edge medical conferences and specialist events that will be hosted at DEC during Expo 2020, under this significant agreement with MCO, will serve as an invaluable addition to the UAE's medical landscape, offering an opportunity for Expo 2020's international visitors and participants to engage in groundbreaking discussions regarding the global healthcare sector."

Dr Mohammed Abuelkhair, CEO, MCO, said, "The much-awaited Expo is a great opportunity for conference organisers such as MCO to take on new initiatives and build something unique for the future. We would like to thank the UAE Government, and Expo 2020 Dubai, for giving MCO the opportunity to show the world what the UAE has to offer in healthcare."

Expo 2020 will open on 20th October 2020 in Dubai and will run for six months.
