It is with great pride and pleasure that I look forward to the second International AYUSH Conference & Exhibition (IACE) to be held at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre. Since the first edition of IACE in 2017, the second coming together of AYUSH stakeholders in Dubai is taking place after a gap of over 5 years! The Covid pandemic held us apart in these intervening years. In that context, the second IACE holds enormous importance for all AYUSH stakeholders in this part of the world for the simple reason that the demand for AYUSH systems of medicine and treatment has been growing tremendously across the world, especially in this region.

Outreach activities like IACE would surely go a long way in helping AYUSH stakeholders reach out to residents of this region and vice versa and reap the wellness attributes of AYUSH systems of medicine benefitting all concerned. I am confident that the second edition of IACE will turn out to be one of the most significant events, which will carry forward the legacy of traditional Indian systems of medicine to the unreached thus far.

I congratulate the Science India Forum and the World Ayurveda Foundation for organising the event on a grand scale. I am sure, this will emerge as a powerful platform for the AYUSH scholars, students, policy makers and practitioners to congregate at the conference. This will serve as an update of the evolving trends in the practice of Indian medicine.

I wish the AYUSH Conference and Exhibition a grand success.

Vd. Rajesh Kotecha
Secretary, Ministry of AYUSH,
Government of India


It has been the endeavour of the Ministry of AYUSH to reach out to all parts of the world to promote AYUSH system of medicines. The very fact that AYUSH medicines have been practised in India for thousands of years and is still going strong bear testimony to the efficacy of India’s traditional system of medicines.

India, from time immemorial, strongly believes that knowledge shared is knowledge gained. AYUSH is rooted in India. And India, with all humility, would like the whole world to reap the benefits of AYUSH from the wellness perspective. The International AYUSH Conference and Exhibition (IACE), to be held in Dubai, is a humble initiative towards that end.

The focal theme of the second IACE is ‘Non-communicable Chronic Diseases: Prevention and Management through AYUSH’. Since the first IACE in 2017, India has done considerable work on this topic through a number of R&D exercises. I am sure, research scholars and experts on area would be sharing their knowledge through this platform.

I have been informed that about 1500 experts and participants from India, Middle East, Far East, Africa, Europe, Australia and America are expected to take part in this conference. Exchange of information and knowledge among the participants is surely a great way to further strengthen and propagate AYUSH all over.

Being an Ayurveda doctor myself, I am eagerly looking forward to be a part of the second IACE, be amongst you during the event, and share whatever knowledge I have, and of course, learn from all of you too. I am also excited about the AYUSH Exhibition, wherein prominent AYUSH businesses will be displaying all their products, including the new ones.

I congratulate Science India Forum and the World Ayurveda Foundation for organising this conference. Wish you all the very best!

Vd Rajesh Kotecha

It has been the endeavour of the Ministry of AYUSH to reach out to all parts of the world to promote AYUSH system of medicines. The very fact that AYUSH medicines have been practised in India for thousands of years and is still going strong bear testimony to the efficacy of India’s traditional system of medicines.

I am extremely happy to learn that the second International AYUSH Conference & Exhibition (IACE) is going to be held in Dubai during 14–15 January 2024 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre (IACE). Although it took over 5 years to hold the second edition of IACE due to various reasons, including COVID 19 pandemic, it does not take away the importance of this Conference in any way.

So much knowledge and wisdom have been generated over the past 5 years in AYUSH streams of medicine and second IACE remains the only platform available to stakeholders residing in this part of the world for sharing the same. To that extent, this conference holds high relevance to all stakeholders. Even the Exhibition will be a great source of information and knowledge related to new medicines and R&D developments in AYUSH.

I urge all stakeholders out there to not only take part in the Conference but also get the message out to the general public in that region. End of the day, India’s traditional system of medicine is for the benefit of humankind, wherever they are.

I take this opportunity to compliment the Science India Forum and the World Ayurveda Foundation for spreading the message of AYUSH in the Middle East through organising the event on a grand scale. May this platform flourish and be a source of information, knowledge, and inspiration towards spreading the message of AYUSH to all.

I wish the Conference and Exhibition a grand success.

This Conference will bring together global AYUSH leaders and professionals as well as AYUSH friends and partners from around the world, to discuss the opportunities and challenges for AYUSH and to develop possible strategies to make innovative healthcare services to cater to the community. The theme of the Conference, Non-Communicable Diseases- Prevention & Management through AYUSH’ is a very relevant theme in the present time. AYUSH systems provide a more holistic approach to deal with Non-Communicable diseases such as cancers, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, back pains etc. The theme also underlines the need for collaboration and cooperation of public, medical professionals. researchers and health policymakers

The Exhibition during the event will enable AYUSH businesses to showcase their services and products to an array of attendees, delegates and buyers. A large number of physicians, scientists, paramedics, researchers, product specialists, innovators, decision makers and trade visitors are expected to attend this AYUSH event. I am confident that with the growing health consciousness among the people of UAE & Middle East they will not miss the chance of meeting the specialists of AYUSH at Dubai

with the 2 Intonational AYUSH Conference & Exhibition Dubai, the very best and grand success like the edition in 2017 and call upon all AYUSH stakeholders, to take advantage of this unique event in Dubai.


A Healing Touch from India

Ayush is a medical system practised in India, which consists of Ayurveda, Yoga, Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homeopathy. There is great curiosity for Ayush systems of medicine especially due to growing challenges in treating Non- Communicable Diseases (NCDs), lifestyle disorders, chronic diseases, multidrug-resistant diseases, the emergence of new diseases etc. Ayush medicines are cost effective, safe, and time tested.

The recognition of AYUSH systems by Government of UAE and a strong presence of 500 plus AYUSH practitioners across the United Arab Emirates vouch for the growing credence of AYUSH amidst Gulf nations. Dubai’s strategic location and connectivity to the other continents played a key role in the choice of venue. In November 2017, Science India Forum & World Ayurveda Foundation successfully organised the First edition of International AYUSH Conference & Exhibition at Dubai World Trade Centre with the support of Ministry of AYUSH, Govt of India and under the patronage of Indian Embassy and Indian Consulate Dubai. 25 countries, 1000 plus AYUSH delegates and 25000 plus visitors attended the event.

We aspire that the second edition of the conference will be a stunning opportunity to build an efficient platform for communication and co-operation among the experts in the healthcare industry. The conference will bring together global healthcare leaders and professionals, researchers, and health policymakers from around the world, under one roof.
