DORAL, Florida, Jan. 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) (“ETST" or the “Company"), an innovative biotech company focused on the cannabidiol (CBD), nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields, medical devices, and research and development, today announces that it will display its leading-edge medical device, Hygee™, at Arab Health 2019 in Dubai, the biggest annual medical trade fair in the Middle East & North Africa (MENA) region.

The Arab Health 2019 fair will take place January 28 – 31, 2019, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, where manufacturers and medical service providers can connect with clinicians, procurement professionals, dealers and distributors. More than 4,000 companies from 66 countries will display at the fair, which is expected to attract over 84,000 visitors and nearly 6,000 dignitaries.

Dermagate, ETST’s manufacturing partner for Hygee™, will officially represent the Company at the fair, introducing Hygee™ to the most important medical distributors in the Middle East and North Africa, ahead of the product’s launch expected in the first half of 2019.

“Introducing Hygee™ at an international event of this caliber is an important element of our product marketing plan,” states Dr. Michel Aubé, CEO and chief science officer of ETST. “We are pleased that Dermagate President Gaétan Houle will represent our brand in Dubai, and we intend to leverage his presence at the show to make key business contacts to connect to the region’s healthcare industry and market.”

Houle will attend the event in conjunction with an eight-company Quebec delegation organized by the Quebec Minister of the Economy and Innovation (“MEI”) and Global Affairs Canada. Houle has been invited to attend a related event at the Canadian Consulate, hosted by the Canadian Trade Commissioner in Chief based in the UAE. Working with the MEI organizer of the Quebec Delegation, Houle will also meet with Canadian Trade commissioners from other MENA countries, including Kuwait and Lebanon.

As previously announced, Hygee™ is on its way to being certified IS0-13485 and soon after it will be licensed by the US FDA and Health Canada. Moreover, ETST will apply for licensing Hygee™ in at least 5 other countries. This is notable, as many of North America’s largest medical device companies will attend Arab Health 2019, as will manufacturers and distributors from around the world,” says Houle. “I look forward to representing Earth Science Tech and its incredible Hygee™ device, and establishing relationships that could further brand recognition and networking.”
