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.

Even heavy typhoon rains could not dampen the enthusiasm and attendance for the 20th anniversary of the DenTech China Meeting in Shanghai, China. More than 60,000 dental professionals from throughout southeastern Asia filled two major exhibit halls in the Shanghai World Expo Convention Center to see and learn about the latest dental innovations.

Approximately 35 U.S. and Canadian companies exhibited in the DTA U.S. pavilion or on their own during the four-day exhibition, taking advantage of the opportunity to meet privately with authorized distributors and buyers from the local Shanghai University Dental Clinics and teaching hospitals. The Dentech China Meeting is making it easier for U.S. companies to participate by helping U.S. manufacturers wishing to get their devices approved for sale in China as well as providing discounts on local hotels and offering transportation to and from the exhibition. DTA is planning to offer a webinar in early 2017 to show U.S. companies how to best register their devices to sell them in China to support future Dentech China endeavors.

The Dentech China Meeting is sponsored by UBM Showstar, several local Shanghai Universities and by the Shanghai Stomatological Association in accordance with Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China.
