#idscologne - 100 years of IDS: Very good number of confirmations for the anniversary event after the initial application phase

Over 850 exhibiting companies have already confirmed their participation at IDS 2023

In just over ten months, it will be time once again: The entire global dental market will meet up in Cologne for the International Dental Show 2023, which is at the same time also celebrating its 100th birthday next year. Once again, the event will cover the comprehensive spectrum of the dental world - from the dental and dental technology section, infection protection and maintenance, through to services, information, communication and organisation systems as well as organisation tools. The preparations for the 40th edition of IDS are currently in full swing. Over 850 companies from 50 countries have already confirmed their participation, including many international market leaders. And new applications are coming in daily. The Society for the Promotion of the Dental Industry (GFDI), the commercial enterprise of the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI), and Koelnmesse announced in a joint statement: "IDS is the leading global trade fair for the dental industry and as a platform for innovations and market trends it secures the sustainable success of the sector. The anniversary edition will impressively demonstrate this."

An initial list of exhibitors containing the companies that have registered for IDS 2023 is available immediately under Opens external link in new window Preliminary exhibitor list of IDS Cologne 2023 | IDS (ids-cologne.de). In addition to the largest participation from Germany, Italy, the Republic of Korea, France, Switzerland and the USA currently represent the strongest international exhibitor participation. Numerous foreign group participations have already confirmed their participation, for example from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and the USA. IDS 2023 will be staged in the Halls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 of the Cologne fair grounds on exhibition space spanning around 180,000 square metres.

IDS is celebrating a double anniversary next year: Not only the fortieth edition is being staged from 14 to 18 March 2023, the leading global trade fair of the dental industry 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.
