The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre has scooped a twin win, being awarded the bid to host the International Osteoporosis Foundation

The Oman Convention & Exhibition Centre (OCEC) has scooped a twin win, being awarded the bid to host the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) Regionals - Fourth Middle East & Africa Osteoporosis Meeting in 2017 and the Sixth IOF Regionals in 2021.



Announcing the successful win of the conference and noting its importance for the OCEC, Trevor McCartney, the OCEC General Manager commented, “With the completion of Phase Two, comprising two tiered auditoriums, 13 meeting rooms and the Grand and Junior Ballrooms, the OCEC will be able to host conferences, as well as exhibitions, meetings, gala dinners and live events. This will launch a new and exciting phase in Oman’s business events industry, creating wide-ranging contributions towards the economic diversification and development of the Sultanate.”


The OCEC has attracted enormous interest and currently has 22 international, regional and national exhibitions and conventions in its forward calendar. In its seven year forecast, the OCEC expects to host almost 450 events by 2022 and welcome thousands of visitors a year.


According to Judy Stenmark, IOF CEO, the OCEC had been a stand out choice for the IOF for a number of reasons, “The IOF Regionals Middle East and Africa Osteoporosis Meeting is a key event in the calendar for the bone, muscle and joint community. It is the leading educational and research forum for osteoporosis and related diseases in the region and we are committed to delivering the highest quality scientific content, as well as optimising the overall delegate experience. The venue plays a central role in the success of the meeting and the OCEC provides exceptional facilities. What is more, it is backed by an expert and experienced team of professionals who understand the specific needs of congresses such as ours. Oman itself was a factor in our decision - it is a central and well-connected location for our delegates, has a growing reputation as a medical hub and, of course, it is a wonderful country to visit.” 


IOF Regionals Fourth Middle East & Africa Osteoporosis Meeting will be held 7-9 December 2017. Expected to attract more than 1,000 delegates, the IOF Congress is a leading bone event in the Middle East and Africa and the leading educational and research forum for osteoporosis and related diseases. Dedicated to motivating people to take action to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease, it attracts regional and international experts and promotes an increasing awareness and understanding of osteoporosis.
