Land & Expand Your MedTech / Healthcare Solutions in Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia is expected to be the largest healthcare market in the GCC with an expected population growth of 3 million over the next 5 years. This, combined with an ageing population putting more burden on the healthcare system, will increase the need to expand, enhance technology and increase access to healthcare. The opportunities for UK digital and technology healthcare providers to support this demand are exponential.
Join us at this online, breakout-room workshop to connect with partners from the Saudi and UK government plus specialist in-country advisers from private hospitals, insurance groups, telecoms and technology infrastructure partners.
You will learn about compliance and regulatory networks necessary to set-up and sustain operations in KSA and select UK commercial partners, increasing opportunities and mitigating risk.
Who Should Attend
This event is for founders and C-suite executives of MedTech and Healthcare scaleups, actively looking to expand internationally.
A series of 30 minute 1-2-1 consultations with experts in different aspects of international trade tailored for your specific needs and scheduled over a 2 to 3 hour period.
Tailored To Your Needs
We'll contact you ahead of the event to understand your business status, needs & interests, so we can schedule your consultations with relevant advisors.
Get bespoke advice and guidance from regional healthcare specialists, investment bodies, infrastructure partners and critical in-country service providers, covering legal, accounting, operational, HR & financial considerations.
