The 20th edition of Dubai World Dermatology and Laser Conference and Exhibition ‘Dubai Derma’, concluded at the Dubai World Trade Center with over $156.4 million worth of business deals signed.

The annual global skincare conference in Dubai, themed “Skin Health is Our Concern,” brought together leading skincare specialists, top surgeons, and physicians from around the world to learn about the newest technical developments and medical treatments for different kinds of skin illnesses.

Dr. Abdul Salam Al Madani, Executive Chairman, Dubai Derma and Chairman of INDEX Holding, said, “the success of ‘Dubai Derma’ is a reflection of the UAE’s pioneering position as the ideal place to hold conferences, exhibitions, and world-class meetings.”

The success of the 20th edition of ‘Dubai Derma,’ was marked as the number of guests exceeded expectations, reaching 27,236 visitors from 110 countries, and the event concluded with over $156.4 million in business deals signed over the course of three days, a 15% increase over the 19th edition, according to reports.

It is an important forum for multinational, regional, and local organizations and brands to find and foster long-term business prospects and connections.

The conference’s third and final day covered a wide range of issues, including artificial intelligence in dermatology, filler injections, laser hair debates, laser therapy for pigmented lesions, and much more.

According to the organizers and dermatologists, cosmetic operations increased significantly following the lockdown. People were surprisingly looking at themselves more often, especially on computer displays during repeated online interactions.

Dubai Derma is annually organized by INDEX Conferences and Exhibitions, a member of INDEX Holding, in cooperation with the Arab Academy of Dermatology and Aesthetics (AADA).
