The Medical & Health
Exhibition of Qatar!
QMED is the main brand name of Qatar’s International Medical and Health Exhibition, jointly organised by local Doha based Sogha Exhibitions and Conferences along with London based ExCo Media. The event will be held at the brand new, world-class and prestigious Qatar National Convention Center (QNCC) One of the largest and most technologically advanced venues in the Middle East.
Due to the large nature of the global Medical and Health industry, the QMED Exhibition has been split into ten (10) parts in order to make exhibitor participation, sponsorship, conference topics and visitor attendance structured and more accurate. These areas of Medical and Health have been created based on the local and regional needs of Qatar and the Middle East, respectively.
These parts are as follows:
The universal colour of Diabetes is Blue.
There are approximately 382 Million Diabetes sufferers in the world with the number expected to increase by 55% to 592 Million by 2035! Qatar is one of the highest per capita Diabetes suffering countries in the world with 22.9% of total population (number 10)! Dedicating a specific area of the QMED Exhibition faces this national condition in Qatar and supports resolving the issue long-term through world-class healthcare services and support, technologies and education ascertained nationally and internationally.
This special focus to a particular health problem for a nation and region of the world within the confines of a general Medical and Health Exhibition and Conferences is unique to QMED.
The organisers of QMED will provide 20% of all revenue generated from space sold in the QBlue Zone to the Qatar Diabetes Association.
