#idscologne - IDS 2021 is preparing itself for the international dental industry

Spacious food service areas ensure the trade fair participants a safe stay

The time will have come round again in just over seventy days: The 39th edition of IDS, the International Dental Show, opens its doors in Cologne on 22 September 2021. The leading global trade fair of the dental industry is a secure, stable anchor in turbulent times and the best place to compare one’s own company with the competition and position it on the global market. Dentists and dental technicians can gather information and ideas here that enable them to make future decisions for their practice or laboratory. The international dental industry is a strong community, characterised by common values, which is reflected by IDS, as the most important industry platform and with its role model function: flexible, innovative, creative, service and customer oriented, cosmopolitan and community-promoting. The organisers of IDS 2021, the GFDI (Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Dental-Industrie mbH) and Koelnmesse have taken all conceivable precautions to make the extremely important personal exchange and networking between the international industry participants in Cologne safe and pleasant.

The personal dialogue, networking within the industry and the extensive world of experience of IDS, which addresses all senses, are irreplaceable. Visiting IDS 2021 will take place under almost normal framework conditions. Regarding business discussions at the stands of the companies, hospitable and communicative encounters will also be possible in September.

Snack points, temporary food service offers and self-service restaurants with "front cooking" will satisfy the culinary needs of the visitors and exhibitors. Additional, extensive space is designed and planned for all food service areas to guarantee sufficient social distancing. Furthermore, a "Food Court" in Hall 4.1 with diverse culinary offers and generous layouts is at the disposal of all trade fair participants, where discussions can be continued over lunch.

The networking will also continue long after the trade fair closes. The city of Cologne and the local restaurants are looking forward to IDS 2021 and the trade fair participants, who will also come together here in larger groups. The exhibitors and visitors of IDS can enjoy the late summer and the "traditional Rhenish lifestyle" in the cosy breweries and beer gardens.
