Agora is hosting its 7th edition of the Healthcare Disrupters Congress on February 27, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The Healthcare Disrupters Congress leverages the experience gained through the hosting of the first 6 editions of the event and ensures maximum return on investment for all our sponsors.

This is an exclusive, closed-door, by invitation-only event. We are expecting more than 200 delegates to attend, all of whom are C-level executives and leaders in the Healthcare Industry, from the government and private organizations, and more than 100 corporate buyers with a combined budget of over 500 million dollars. This format guarantees the best return on investment of your time and money.

The MENA countries have made significant improvements within the Healthcare industry. This sector has faced a major transformation. The recent pandemic has challenged healthcare organizations to build a more resilient model, embrace digital innovations, and explore new funding models to deliver person-centered care, as healthcare now revolves around the patient and not vice versa, with better health outcomes at more affordable sustainable costs.

The Healthcare Disrupters Congress will contribute to the advancement of digitization in the Healthcare industry in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by bringing together leaders from the government, healthcare institutions, insurance companies, investors, and solution providers to discuss the challenges and opportunities in this sector.
