Dear Esteemed Colleagues and Participants,
It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we extend a warm welcome to all of you to the 9th MENA
Stroke Congress, scheduled to be held from 28 to 30 September 2023 at the InterContinental hotel in
Riyadh, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. As the largest stroke congress in the MENA region, we are honored
to gather here following the tremendous success of our predecessors held in the United Arab Emirates,
Bahrain, and Egypt in 2022, 2021, and 2020 respectively.
The 9th International Middle East and North Africa Stroke Congress serves as a timely and essential
platform for addressing the challenges of stroke prevention, management, and rehabilitation. Our focus
lies in fostering innovation and collaboration in the field, and we are privileged to organize this congress
in collaboration with the Saudi Stroke Society (SSS) and the Saudi Society of Neurological Interventions
What makes this gathering truly exceptional is the simultaneous hosting of the 11th Annual Saudi Stroke
Society Conference and the 1st Annual Saudi Society of Neurological Interventions (SSNI) Conference. By
combining these prestigious events with the 9th MENA Stroke Congress, we have created a unique
opportunity for experts in the field to exchange knowledge, share insights, and collaborate towards
enhancing stroke management.
The congress committee has worked diligently to build upon the historical success of previous
congresses, and we are proud to present a robust program featuring renowned international and
regional faculty. Over the course of two days, more than 50 speakers of distinguished caliber, including
experts in neurology, cardiology, radiology, neurointervention, and rehabilitation, will present cutting-
edge topics related to stroke. The knowledge shared during this congress will undoubtedly contribute to
advancing stroke care and improving patient outcomes.
