The highlight of the dental industry continues to gain significance:
the International Dental Show 2017
The 37th International Dental Show (IDS) will be opened by the Federal Health Minister Hermann Gröhe in Cologne on 21 March 2017.
"We are delighted that Minister Gröhe is honouring the leading world dental show with his visit, is opening the 37th IDS and is going to gain a personal impression of the performance of the dental medical technology. As such, Minister Gröhe is underlining the high standing of IDS in Germany and abroad," commented Dr. Martin Rickert, VDDI Chairman.
IDS is a top event in the Cologne trade fair portfolio and has been growing for years both in terms of the number of exhibitors and visitors. Record figures are awaited once again for 2017.
The official opening will take place at 10:30 a.m. in the corridor between Halls 10 and 11. We would like to invite you to attend as a representative of the media and editorial offices.
