Dubai, UAE:  The 12th Middle East Update in Otolaryngology Conference & Exhibition (ME-OTO), organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, will return to the Madinat Jumeirah Arena in Dubai on 19-21 April 2015. Two new conferences will run alongside ME-OTO 2015 to address the region’s ENT needs and concerns; the 1st Middle East Thyroid Cancer Conference and the 1st World Congress on Endoscopic Ear Surgery.
