CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 22, 2015) - DIRTT (TSX:DRT) and NMG Medical Planners are supporting their significant international healthcare market successes with a 2,000 square foot showcase at Arab Health, the largest healthcare show in the Middle East.

Arab Health Exhibition and Congress, January 26 - 29, is the second-largest healthcare show globally. DIRTT and NMG, DIRTT's Middle East distribution partner, will connect with industry leaders from around the world. Healthcare has proven to be a strong market for the company internationally, with more than 40 projects completed in the Middle East and substantial projects underway in Asia.

"International growth is a key driver behind our success this year," says DIRTT President Scott Jenkins. He adds that in addition to more than 90 distribution partners in North America, the company recently expanded relationships in Singapore, South Korea and India. "Healthcare leaders around the world are beginning to understand our approach to building," Scott says, "and it's proving to be one of the fastest-growing markets for our company."

DIRTT and NMG's two-level modular Arab Health showcase features a patient room, dialysis area, clinic setting, doctor's lounge, conference room, nurses' station and pediatric area. Integrated technology and modular power/data throughout - something industry professionals now request - are controlled with web-based applications. Guests can also explore a healthcare space in virtual reality with DIRTT's ICE® VR Experience, featuring ICE software, Oculus Rift gaming goggles and Polhemus motion tracking sensors.

"Arab Health is great not only for our Middle East market, but for North America, Europe and Asia as well," says NMG founder Bassem Nassif, who will join the DIRTT team at Arab Health. "People see how our building approach allows us to deliver a complete space from A to Z anywhere in the world. This growing success is largely built on our speed of construction, easy accessibility and full customization, including unlimited aesthetic options, integrated technology, and modular power and data."
