after the announcement we were still unsure if the show would go onâ€Ś A message from MOH to proceed but without an official ribbon cutting, press blackout, and no spotlights outside the venue was the light at the end of a very long tunnel. With the entire country in mourning, this did not help with the visitor numbers; however we managed to draw around 2000 unique visitors. A partner Forum which was held alongside the exhibition, started on 18 June at the Park Hyatt with close to 200 participants. Positive comments about the programme from MOH to slate more healthcare conferences in Saudi sealed the success of the event. MEDEXPO is currently the only medical event in KSA and for the first time ever, is the only event to bring all the various medical societies together in one venue. The next edition of MEDEXPO Saudi Arabia is now set to take place from 2 to 4 April 2013, at the same venue, and is aiming for a larger share of local visitors and international exhibitors.
