This activity is approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™

The new dates for ME-OTO 2020 are 5-7 October 2020


 After close consultation with our partners from around the world, Informa Markets has taken the decision to postpone ME-OTO 2020 until later this year. 

Following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), travel restrictions are in place in a number of countries and whilst local government guidelines and the World Health Organisation have not currently recommended specific control measures in the UAE, we believe it is in the best interest of our delegates, exhibitors, colleagues and all participants to postpone the show.

We have chosen the soonest available dates that ensure the venue can facilitate our vision of bringing a world-class healthcare event to Dubai.

We wish to thank those who participate in and support ME-OTO and we greatly appreciate your patience and understanding with the event postponement. We sincerely hope that you understand that this decision is being made in the interest of the ENT and wider healthcare community, who would better benefit from attending the show on the new dates.

The new dates for ME-OTO 2020 are 5-7 October 2020. Please note, the venue remains same and your booking stays confirmed.
