Medlab & Pharmaconex Unveil the Future of West African Healthcare



Medlab West Africa, the region's leading medical laboratory event, returns to Lagos, Nigeria for a standalone event this April.  This year, it joins forces with the inaugural Pharmaconex West Africa, creating a powerful duo set to reshape the healthcare landscape and accelerate innovation across the region.

The event, scheduled for 22-24 April, 2024, at the Landmark Centre, offers a unique opportunity for industry professionals, thought leaders, and businesses to collaborate and drive positive change. This comes at a critical time, as recent reports highlight a concerning exodus of medical laboratory scientists from the region. Medlab West Africa aims to address this need by providing a dedicated platform focused on the evolving needs of the medical laboratory sector.

A hub for knowledge sharing and innovation

Medlab West Africa will boast a comprehensive programme featuring over 3,500 visitors, 150+ exhibitors from more than 30 countries, and six high-level CPD-accredited conferences.
