The event provides the industry with opportunities to move the needle of influence across the dynamic market place of Qatar’s borders and beyond.

Abdullah Abdurazaq Haider, CEO QIMC said:

The inaugural QIMC set the tone for the regional medical industry; we experienced breakthrough medical innovation and suppliers signed huge deals. This year, together with our strategic partners, Qatar Ministry of Public Health, Hamad Medical Corporation and Primary Health Care Corporation, we will continue to support the local, regional and international medical industry by offering a knowledge sharing platform that brings together the most renowned names in medicine through our exclusive annual exhibition and conference.’
