Euroconvention Conferences and Medical Wellness Tourism, in collaboration with IFC, OPIC and the Health Ministers Council for the GCC States, is pleased to invite you to "A Healthcare Infrastructure Investment & Finance Summit.

The Middle East healthcare business is expected to be worth some US$60 billion by 2025 as the need for investment in services and facilities increases. It is the only region in the world that faces such a rapid increase in demand and this growth is creating new opportunities for construction and consulting companies, financial, banking and private equity sectors, as well as medical equipment suppliers and the pharma sector in particular.

Due to the absence of sufficient wellness facilities in the MENA Region to date quality healthcare needs are currently being provided by many Asian countries at extremely competitive prices. In fact, many Asian governments are now making concerted efforts to promote their 'health tourism' sector to woo even more visitors from the Middle East countries.

This has become central focus to private sector operators who have seen the opportunities in this growth sector, particularly in Dubai, Jordan and Lebanon. Healthcare tourism will therefore generate considerable investments throughout the whole region in the coming years bringing with it considerable management and HR input.

Cairo promises to provide a unique opportunity to exploit these opportunities in the presence of the key decision-makers from the Public Sector from the whole Region, the buy side private and public sector Hospital Management and the key European and US suppliers of services, equipment, construction and funding.
