EDI Manages Multiple State Groups at Arab Health 2015

Two of EDI’s senior staff people traveled to Dubai during the last week of January to participate in the Arab Health 2015 conference and exhibition, where a number of the company’s client states exhibited.  Illinois had 12 companies in the state’s booth in the US pavilion for whom EDI had set up more than 110 one-on-one pre-arranged meetings with potential business partners in the region.  For Pennsylvania, EDI arranged similar meetings for five of the companies exhibiting at its booth.  EDI represents the trade and investment interests of both states in this region.  Finally, Washington engaged EDI to set meetings for three of its companies who, while not exhibiting, did attend the event and wanted to meet potential business partners.

Arab Health, with over 3,800 exhibitors and in excess of 100,000 visitors, is the second largest life sciences event of its kind after MEDICA, which is held annually in Germany.
