Consumers in the Middle East spend around AED272 billion on health and wellness products every year, the organiser of the Wellness and Spas Middle East conference has claimed.

The event, which will take place at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from June 7th to June 9th, will offer Emiratis the opportunity to witness the very latest developments in the health and wellbeing market.

Among the exhibitors will be Technogym Emirates, Gammaco and Berrywell, as well as major firms from Denmark, France, Ukraine and Slovenia.
