Expert presentations in Speakers' Corner at the IDS deal with the latest trends, products and methods from research and the laboratory
Programme for Speakers' Corner now online - Another specialised supporting programme makes the IDS the most comprehensive information platform with added value for the national and international visitor alike in 2009
With over 1,750 exhibitors from approximately 55 countries, this year's 33rd International Dental Show, IDS, is not only the largest international Dental Show ever - it is also the world's leading information and innovation platform for dentistry. Proof of this is the new schedule of presentations in Speakers' Corner IDS Hall 3.1, near Entrance South. During all five days of the show, from 24 to 28 March 2009, several speakers will be making 30-minute presentations on the latest trends, innovations, products and methods from the research laboratories and think-tanks of the many exhibitors participating.
The topic areas in Speakers' Corner are as versatile as the fair itself: for example implant systems, dentures, tooth aesthetics, CAD/CAM, laser technology, practice organization and much more. A constantly updated overview of the participants as well as the topics and dates of the presentations is available for download on the Internet www.ids cologne.de (For visitors/Supporting programme). In addition to Speakers' Corner, the interesting range of specialised topics on offer at the IDS 2009 includes other supporting programme highlights from the German Dental Association (BZÄK) and the Association of German Dental Technicians' Guilds (VDZI).
