Swedish medical device company Bactiguard has been exhibiting at the health care exhibition Arab Health in Dubai since 2008. This year will be the 7th time the company is present at the exhibition. Arab Health plays a crucial role for not just health care in the Middle East-region, but also in a global perspective and makes an excellent arena for meetings and new contacts.

Bactiguard is represented at Arab Health with CEO Christian Kinch, Senior Vice President & COO Johan Rugfelt, President Middle East Peter Mårtensson, Vice President International Affairs Linda Nyberg, Country Manager Iraq Kefah Esmael and Sales Director Middle East & Africa Omar Al Rayess.

Bactiguard will welcome a large delegation coming from Iraq to Arab Health this year. Johan Rugfelt Senior Vice President & COO, Bactiguard: “The Middle East is one of our most important markets and last year we greatly expanded our business in the region. One example of a new market for us is Iraq, where we have had great success with our infection protection portfolio. At Arab Health we are hoping to establish new contacts and potential partners eager to join us in our mission to reduce health care associated infections around the world”.

On the 29th of January Bactiguard, together with Business Sweden, invites to a seminar in Infection Control at Arab Health, Radisson Royal Hotel, 49 Sheikh Zayed Road, Trade Centre District, Dubai.
