100 years of IDS: Leading global dental trade fair celebrates anniversary in 2023
After the application deadline on 31 March 2022, the layout of the world’s largest dental trade fair will begin
IDS, the leading global trade fair of the dental industry is celebrating a double anniversary next year: Not only the fortieth edition of the International Dental Show will be staged from 14 to 18 March 2023, IDS is also looking forward to its 100th birthday. The success story of the dental world is inseparably linked with IDS, because the leading trade fair is based on a system of values that makes it unique. 100 years of IDS stand for the depiction of the industry in its entirety, for innovations and market trends, for a consistent and open comparison of performance in the sense of the Olympic principle and last, but not least for a leadership claim as the largest international industry platform that has been repeatedly confirmed for decades. When the online applications kick off in February, the anniversary edition of the world’s largest trade fair for dentistry and dental technology will be under starter’s orders. In the run-up to the trade fair, Koelnmesse has already received numerous inquiries for stand area from companies. After the application deadline on 31 March 2022, the first planning phase will begin.
Companies that have confirmed their participation by the official application date at the end of March, will be directly taken into consideration in the initial layout planning of the halls of IDS 2023.
The success story and the anniversary of IDS are also an outstanding result for Koelnmesse, because the International Dental Show has been conducted at the trade fair location in Cologne for over thirty years. At the time, the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI), decided to provide IDS with a permanent home in Cologne from 1992 onwards and to entrust Koelnmesse with organising the trade fair.
