From March 20-24, about 1,600 exhibitors from roughly 50 countries with 61 per cent coming from outside Germany will be presenting the latest trends and innovations in the international dental market. At present, the biggest contingents of registered exhibitors are from Germany, Italy, the USA, Switzerland, the Republic of Korea, and the UK. And next year companies from New Zealand, Norway, Egypt and Andorra will be exhibiting for the first time. The largest of the 19 group participations registered so far are coming from the USA, Korea, Italy, France and Brazil. Six of the groups will be taking part in IDS for the first time in 2007 from the UK, France, Taiwan, Turkey, Hungary and China.
More than 250 first-time exhibitors have registered to take part next year at this platform for the global dental industry. This turnout combined with the desire of many exhibitors who have taken part in IDS in the past for larger exhibit areas will make the next IDS the largest dental fair ever held.
At www.ids-cologne.de, exhibitors and visitors can book rooms in one of over 70 Koelnmesse partner hotels as well as travel packages (flights, hotel and rental cars) and services in Cologne, including transfers, guided tours and tickets for cultural events. The packages are significantly cheaper than booking each component separately.
