About The Event

With a booming population and high incidences of lifestyle diseases, demand for high-quality and accessible healthcare services has been growing at an unprecedented rate in the Middle East. Healthcare spending in the GCC is expected to hit $69 billion by 2020.

Realizing the massive potential, and with constant technological advances changing the industry around them, investors are eagerly scouring the market for opportunities, while healthcare providers search for funds to match their service delivery to the level of demand. But these stakeholders are facing a number of barriers, as well as a fast-paced digital future.

At its inaugural healthcare event, Forbes Middle East will provide a platform for regulators, senior leaders, experts and investors to discuss the challenges they are facing during this transformational phase and share lessons from the best practices across the world.
