40th IDS: 100-year success story set to continue with 1600+ exhibitors so far

IDS 2023 is not only celebrating its 40th edition, as the leading trade fair; the International Dental Show has also now been shaping the future of the global dental industry for 100 years.

And the success story continues in 2023: So far, over 1600 exhibitors from 60 countries, including 14 group stands from 12 countries, have registered for the world's largest trade fair for the dental industry, dental medicine and dental technology, which is being staged from 14 to 18 March 2023. And the online platform IDSconnect will allow all of the industry players to network, physically and digitally.

In addition to the largest participation from Germany, the strongest international exhibitor participants currently come from Italy, the Republic of Korea, France, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey and the USA. Beyond this, group stands from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Israel, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore, Turkey and the USA are represented in Cologne. IDS 2023 will be staged in Halls 1 [new], 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 of the Cologne fair grounds in Germany on exhibition space spanning around 180,000 m2.


In addition to the physical exhibition, the digital platform IDSconnect, provides information on products and system solutions as well as enabling the streaming of webinars, press conferences, events and one-to-one interaction with industry decision-makers. This means consistent international reach combined with a successful in-person trade fair experience. Trade visitors of IDS can go live any time or call up content precisely when they have the time.

Furthermore, IDSconnect provides a range of digital offers that enrich the trade fair visit: from learning sessions, to online seminars, through to corporate and product presentations.

IDSconnect is very easy and intuitive for everyone to use - even without previous digital experience - bringing the world's largest dental show directly to your screen for an authentic trade fair experience. All functions are presented as video tutorials on the IDS website - from the navigation through to networking at
