MARYLAND COMMERCE LEADS STATE DELEGATION DURING ARAB HEALTH 2023 TRADE SHOW
11 local companies will travel to Dubai to promote Maryland’s healthcare assets, including small and mid-size companies, to a global audience
BALTIMORE, MD (January 30, 2023) — The Maryland Department of Commerce this week is leading a delegation of several Maryland companies to Arab Health 2023, one of the world’s largest healthcare exhibitions. Held in Dubai, this is the ninth year Maryland Commerce has exhibited at the trade show, promoting the state’s healthcare assets as well as a number of small and mid-size companies to a global audience.
Maryland Commerce recently awarded several rounds of ExportMD grants, and many recipients utilized the funding to travel to Arab Health. ExportMD grants are provided to small and mid-size companies on a monthly basis to assist with travel and marketing costs associated with international trade shows.
“Annual events like the Arab Health exhibition help showcase Maryland and its innovative businesses to an international audience,” said Maryland Commerce Assistant Secretary of Business & Industry Sector Development Heather Gramm. “With a robust life sciences industry and numerous healthcare companies, we can easily demonstrate that Maryland is the prime destination for global industry leaders looking to expand to the U.S.”
The 11 Maryland companies traveling to Arab Health as part of the delegation include Alliance Care Technologies (Easton); BC3 Technologies (Baltimore); ClickMedix (Gaithersburg); Homeland Custodial Services (Columbia); Integrated Pharma Services (Rockville); Konsyl (Easton); Man & Machine (Landover); OMM Collection (North Bethesda); PediaMetrix (Rockville); Pevco (Middle River); and Supplema (Hunt Valley).
Alliance Care Technologies, an artificial intelligence-driven healthcare company, traveled as part of Maryland’s Arab Health delegation for the first time in 2022. The Talbot County company is looking forward to expanding on last year’s success, as well as the potential for more sales and new customers.
“We were thrilled with the opportunities for partnership and networking last year,” said Michele Tarnow, CEO of Alliance Care Technologies. “Exhibiting again at Arab Health will help us build stronger partnerships in the Middle East, Africa, and South Asia region. In addition, our team members will continue to build beneficial relationships with the Maryland delegation for mutual interests and future growth.”
