Medic West Africa Exhibition and Conference is poised to make its highly-anticipated return to Nigeria, offering a unique platform for leaders to shape the future of healthcare in the region. With a track record of facilitating $30 million in business deals, this event serves as the largest gathering of healthcare trade professionals in West Africa. From September 26th to 28th, 2023, healthcare experts and stakeholders will converge in Lagos for this influential event.


Last year, Medic West Africa attracted 3,260 healthcare professionals from 84 countries, and this year promises to be even more impactful. The upcoming conferences will feature sessions led by renowned organizations such as the Healthcare Federation of Nigeria, the Association of Nigerian Private Medical Practitioners, and the Society for Quality in Health Care in Nigeria. Additionally, Informa Markets, a leading global exhibitions organizer, will celebrate the 10th anniversary of Medic West Africa and introduce Medlab West Africa in collaboration with the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN).


Medlab West Africa serves as a premier medical laboratory event, providing manufacturers with exclusive opportunities to connect with a diverse audience of buyers. From distributors to senior end-users, this event facilitates unparalleled networking and knowledge-sharing within the West African healthcare and medical laboratory community.


Tom Coleman, the Exhibition Director of Medic West Africa, emphasized the mission to transform healthcare infrastructure in the region. He highlighted the increasing demand for quality healthcare services due to the rapidly growing population of West and Central Africa. While governments have made significant investments in improving healthcare infrastructure, Medic West Africa plays a vital role in driving the progress of the industry. By creating an environment that fosters connections, discussions, and exploration of the latest healthcare advancements and solutions, this event contributes to the overall development of the sector.


The 2023 Medic West Africa event will feature the Medlab Congress, which includes laboratory conference tracks focusing on laboratory management, clinical microbiology, immunology, and molecular diagnostics. Renowned experts in the industry, including Dr. Donald I. Ofili, Dr. Akyala Ishaku, and Dr. Abdul Karim Sesay, will serve as facilitators, sharing their insights and expertise. These sessions will also be eligible for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation by the MLSCN.

This event is an exceptional opportunity for healthcare professionals, stakeholders, and manufacturers to unlock the potential of West Africa’s thriving healthcare and laboratory sector.
