CIHEA November Healthcare and Life Science mission

CABC has partnered up with CIHEA, a partnership of Canadian health professionals, educational institutions, national associations and businesses, all having strong interest in building collaborative relationships with companies and organizations in the region*.

In November CIHEA will be leading the second trade mission to the region with stops in both Turkey and the Gulf. Our mission will span eight days commencing November 14, 2019 with scheduled stops in Istanbul (November 14 & 15), Abu Dhabi (November 17-18), Dubai (November 18 (evening reception) & 19), Muscat (November 20) and Doha (November 21). Organizations being invited to participate in our meetings include, but are not limited to: universities, colleges, commissions, government ministries (education and health care) and the private sector.

We encourage medical, nursing, allied health, life sciences and technology companies and organizations to join the mission. In addition, any CABC members that also belong to CIHEA are invited to join.

This will be an opportunity to promote your organization’s offerings, to strengthen the relationships established in previous visits to the region, and to explore the vast untapped opportunities the region offers.

There will be information sessions and B2B networking events to increase the profile of Canadian organizations wishing to establish a presence, in or partnerships with, targeted firms in UAE, Oman and Qatar.
