DTA & Midwinter Meeting

Taking Full Advantage of Your Chicago Midwinter Meeting

The Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting is a busy week for the dental industry. It is one of the first major dental meetings of the year and a growing international dental event. Take full advantage of your time in Chicago by attending a number of DTA sponsored activities that are designed to enhance your Chicago Midwinter opportunities.

Arrive in Chicago on Wednesday, February 25th for the Future Trends Forum followed immediately by the DTA Preview Show at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place adjacent to the McCormick Center and Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Exhibition. This year, the Future Trends  Forum takes on a provocative subject –gray market sales. Find out how companies are dealing with the challenges of unintended dental products sold or re–imported back into the US market. Learn from leading professionals how they address this issue. Understand how the implementation of Unique Device Identification (UDI) impacts the sale of gray market dental products.

Immediately following the Future Trends Forum is the Preview Show, the best business-to-business event for dental companies in the US. Manufacturers will be highlighting their latest products and small equipment. US and foreign distributors will be attending the Preview Show looking for new companies to partner with and for new technologies to bring to the dental office. This year’s Preview Show offers a number of new innovations including private meeting spaces, sign–up sheets to request a private meeting with a manufacturer (ahead of time or on–site) and VIP passes for attendees who want to beat the competition to meet with table top exhibitors before the crowds arrive.

The following day, the Emerging Leaders are hosting a Wine and Food Pairing – so executives can learn more about serving the proper wines with great food when entertaining clients. A leading sommelier from Midmark Corporation will lead the group through a half dozen different wine tastings and food pairings. This event will be marked by plenty of great food, top wines and a lot of high level networking. The event takes place Thursday evening, Feb 26th at the Omni Hotel, 676 N. Michigan Avenue from 6:30 to 9 pm. Highly recommended for all your sales managers and executive team.
