IDS 2023 once again with IDSconnect - IDS 2023 is not only celebrating its 40th edition, as the leading trade fair the International Dental Show has meanwhile been shaping the dental future of the global industry for 100 years. And the success story continues: So far, over 1600 exhibitors from 60 countries, including 14 group stands from 12 countries, have registered for the world's largest trade fair for the dental industry, dental medicine and dental technology, which is being staged from 14 to 18 March 2023. As such, the entire dental industry including all of the international market leaders is represented at IDS. A unique, wide-spanning constellation of areas is covered, ranging from dental medicine, dental technology, infection protection and maintenance, up to customer services, information, communication and organisational materials. No other dental trade fair presents such a wide spectrum of offers of products and services. And the online platform IDSconnect will allow all of the industry players to network, both physically and in digital form, and ensure they are up-to-date on the current themes.

In addition to the largest participation from Germany, the strongest international exhibitor participants currently come from Italy, the Republic of Korea, France, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey and the USA. Beyond this, group stands from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Israel, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Turkey and the USA are represented in Cologne.
