The organisers say there are many reasons for visiting the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne from 22 to 25 September 2021. For example, they list the following ten:
1. IDS is the leading industry event and the central forum for gaining information on dental themes. IDS offers all current developments at one location and is organised with great attention to detail. Dentists and dental technicians, representatives of the dental industry and specialised dealers meet up here to push dentistry as a whole and their own establishments forward.
2. It is finally possible to meet up again in person at international level. This is where the visitors review the overall situation: What worked well during the pandemic? Which supply chains could I rely on? Which partners supported me and which new partners do I need? Having a direct dialogue at IDS regarding these issues is fuel for the future success.
3. The augmented interest of broad levels of the population in health themes is causing a positive impulse in the dental industry. More people are thinking about the connections between oral health and general health – an opportunity for dentists and dental technicians to “collect” them right there. A visit to IDS is recommended in order to offer patients cutting-edge dentistry.
4. After our experiences during the crisis, IDS allows us to take stock and fine tune one’s business to a lesser or great extent. Dentists and dental technicians can take advantage of this opportunity to make a detailed comparison of concepts and products to determine the thrust of future innovations.
5. The whole dental team can experience industry trends up close, making them haptic explorers and sensory physiologists, they see, comprehend and assess. The event will be held under all the current protection regulations and the corresponding requirements of the authorities of North Rhine-Westphalia.
6. With #B-SAFE4business concept, IDS 2021 sets standards for safe meetings in the exhibition halls. Among other things, the concept encompasses an intelligent visitor flow via an indoor positioning system with the corresponding app (eGuard). This provides a safe environment in which meetings and business can flourish.
7. The aisles and hubs as well as the resting and food service zones in all of the halls are designed so that it is no problem to keep the minimum distances. Face mask can even be taken off in the restaurant area. A comfortable exchange among colleagues or teams is also possible there.
8. The admission ticket for IDS is exclusively available online this year – there is no box office on-site. The admission ticket for the trade fair simultaneously serves as a public transport ticket in North Rhine-Westphalia. In order to activate it, one has to provide digital proof whether one is vaccinated, recovered or in possession of a negative test.
9. IDS in Cologne is an international trade fair in the heart of Europe that can be safely and simply reached by bus, railway and airplane.
10. IDS lets the dental industry breathe out. After an intensive visit to the trade fair, the city of Cologne invites the participants to enjoy a safe and relaxing stay – all under the protection regulations and the requirements of the authorities of North Rhine-Westphalia.
Mark Stephen Pace, Chairman of the VDDI (Association of the German Dental Manufacturers e.V.) added: “The world and the dental world will keep on turning in spite of the pandemic, during the pandemic and above all after the pandemic. There is a green light for a sustainable upturn.
“Especially in this phase it pays for dentists, dental technicians and their teams to orient themselves and take investment decisions on a well-founded basis. IDS 2021 in Cologne from 22 to 25 September is the starting point.”
IDS takes place in Cologne every two years. It is organised by the GFDI Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie mbH, the commercial enterprise of the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI), and staged by Koelnmesse GmbH, Cologne.
