Oman Health – Exhibition & Conference is an international annual event that highlights the continued development of the healthcare sector in Oman. It targets all aspects of the health and wellness industry, opening doors for health products, services and facilities, and opportunities for new developments and trends, and trade and investment. It was launched in 2009 and is now in its Seventh edition. It was certified as a UFI-approved event in 2013.
The event provides participants with an excellent opportunity to network with government, regulatory authorities, colleagues, and learn up-to-date information, emerging trends, strategies, innovative approaches, management techniques and technologies that would help them enhance the quality of healthcare services in the country. It is recognized as Oman’s biggest healthcare platform.

The Oman government has put in place its Health Vision 2050, a long-term strategy to support its goal of having a healthy and productive population through a “well-organised, equitable, efficient and responsive health system.” The plan includes the construction of new hospitals, centers and clinics, the key being the US$1-billion Sultan Qaboos Medical City Complex, which comprises five major hospitals that cater to Oman residents and seen to offer local and international healthcare.
While the plan is being implemented, Oman, in the meantime will benefit much from the planned projects and partnerships with foreign companies to build high-quality centers and hospitals, bring in foreign expertise, specialists, specialized treatment and services, and state-of-the-art medical technology.
