Grow Your Export Sales


While the U.S. Pavilion at the 2015 IDS Meeting in Cologne, Germany is sold out, options are still available for you to join the more than 150 U.S. and Canadian companies exhibiting. U.S. companies can purchase exhibit space for IDS but probably won’t have a booth located in Hall 4.2, the U.S. Pavilion. Please contact Franz Balve  or (732) 933-1117 to reserve booth space. In addition, DTA has a number of discounted hotel rooms close to the meeting still available. Just how discounted are they? Exhibitors can typically save $100 per night per room by booking their hotel rooms through DTA. Click here for hotel availability and pricing

Additionally, there are several great opportunities for U.S. manufacturers to find authorized distributor partners and government, clinic and hospital purchasers in other parts of the world looking for American dental products and equipment.

FDI and DenTech

Two important dental meetings where you can find these potential partners are the September FDI Meeting in New Delhi and the October DenTech China Meeting in Shanghai.

The FDI Meeting is a joint Dental Congress and Exhibition with the Indian Dental Association. A larger and more international group of attendees is expected in New Delhi for the meeting and exhibition including distributors from all over India, Pakistan and the closest bordering countries of Southeast Asia. The DTA has a small U.S. Pavilion supporting DTA member companies looking to expand their Indian exports.  Please contact Mark Alt with Kallman Associates for booth space at

More than 35 U.S. companies will be at the U.S. pavilion at the DenTech China Dental Meeting in Shanghai. This is the fourth year that DTA has taken a group of U.S. companies to the Dentech China Meeting, which boasts a large group of attendees from the China coast, Vietnam, Laos and Thailand. The Dentech China Meeting is known for the group of sanctioned hospital and university buyers looking for U.S. dental products. Shanghai has quickly become one of the important crossroads sales of dental products in Asia.   Please contact Sandra Shen to reserve booth space. or +86-21-6157 3953

Export Group

The DTA Export Group meets twice a year to discuss new dental meeting opportunities to help U.S. companies highlight their dental products and find new authorized distributor partners. The group meets each February in Chicago during the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting and at either the ADA Annual Session or at the Greater New York Meeting in the fall. Other international meetings being considered for a U.S. Pavilion include Sao Paulo and Dubai. Please consider sending a representative to join our export group if your company is interested in growing your international sales.

The DTA Export Group also helps DTA companies find reliable distributor partners in other parts of the world, links manufacturers with international distributors at the DTA Preview Show in Chicago each February.
