Location: Madrid, Spain

Approximately 16,000 dentists and dental team members are expected to travel to Madrid, Spain next year for the 2017 FDI World Dental Congress and, as a DTA member, your company can be a part of the U.S. pavilion so you can better reach these current and potential customers.

The FDI World Congress is a multi-disciplinary event featuring the most outstanding national and international experts from the main dental fields from Aug. 29 to Sept. 1, 2017. It includes custom practical workshops, is certified by the ADA and offers continuing education credits and will also feature a complete commercial exhibition with the presence of the sector industry which will showcase the latest technological developments at the Congress.

“In my opinion, it is the most important dental event in the decade and we’re convinced it will be complete success,” said the Chairman of the General Dental Council in Spain, Óscar Castro Reino. “We will have approximately 350 brands and state-of-the-art companies from around the world in the 7,000 square meters of exhibit space.”

Annual sales of dental equipment in Spain are well in excess of 65 million Euro, while growth in the dental market is estimated at 2 percent per year. Also, according to 2016 statistics by Eurostat, of the approximately 330,000 practicing dentists in Europe, nearly one-tenth are in Spain (32,429), making it the continent’s fourth largest dental market.
