More than 20 buyers from United Arab Emirates, Oman and Kuwait are visiting the Midlands this month (March 2018), all of whom are looking to strengthen business ties with life science companies based in the region.

The Midlands Engine region is home to more than 1,000 life science companies and over the past five years, UK delegations have visited Arab Health making strong connections and reinforcing our trade commitments between the two countries.

As part of the three-day visit to the Midlands, cutting-edge companies from across the region will be able to set up one-to-one meetings with the buyers at a Meet the Supplier event on 21 March. The event is being hosted by Simon Hall, Director Exports & Investment Midlands Engine, Department for International Trade and will take place at the Manufacturing Technology Centre in Coventry.

“Life sciences is a huge sector for the Midlands, where there’s a range of pioneering science work taking place in centres for clinical excellence and universities,” said Simon. “This visit is a great opportunity for businesses to introduce their products to buyers who are actively seeking products and services that will benefit their markets.”
