The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) is organizing the state’s delegation to attend 2014 Arab Health: a premier global trade event for the medical industry. The delegation will be led by the International Trade Division and will feature Georgia-based companies in the medical device and health IT (HIT) sectors. Arab Health 2014 will take place January 27-30 in Dubai, UAE. Last year Arab Health hosted more than 3,500 exhibitors from 64 countries.

This is Georgia’s first time exhibiting at Arab Health. The state’s pavilion was located within the prestigious U.S.A. Pavilion GDEcD was joined by:

  • Abatement Technologies
  • DominateHealthcare
  • Myelotec
  • Sensiotec

By exhibiting with the state, these companies received market intelligence, increased brand recognition, substantially reduced exhibit costs and follow-up assistance from GDEcD.

The state of Georgia joins other members of the United States delegation, which, as a country, is the second-largest global exporter of medical products. In 2013, Georgia exported $1.1 billion in life sciences products and continued to expand as the nation’s HIT capital. Emphasis on the industry has grown as observers expect global markets to exceed $400 billion over the next five years. Responding to global trends, the trade show will focus on the medical devices and technologies, electromedical equipment, diagnostics, laboratory equipment, and HIT markets.

In Fiscal Year 2013, the International Trade Division facilitated 420 deals at a value of $35.8 million.
