IDEM Singapore 2020 features conference programme on the cutting edge of dentistry

Reputedly Asia Pacific's leading dental exhibition and conference, IDEM, the International Dental Exhibition and Meeting, will take place at Suntec Singapore Convention and Exhibition Centre from 24-26 April 2020. IDEM is co-organised by Koelnmesse and the Singapore Dental Association.

"With each edition, IDEM has strengthened to become what it is today, the most established exhibition and scientific conference for dentistry in the Asia Pacific region," said Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director at Koelnmesse Pte Ltd. "For this next edition, we have given great consideration as to what is important in dentistry today, so that the 2020 edition will build new experiences for dental professionals from all aspects of dentistry, to add value in their day-to-day practice.

IDEM 2020 includes activities new to the exhibition hall such as workshops, a dedicated area featuring free live talks, along with a revitalised space to serve food and beverages.

IDEM 2020 Conference

The theme for the IDEM 2020 Conference is Striving for Clinical Excellence. In this spirit, conference delegates will gain practical knowledge and learn new techniques that can improve the oral health and well-being of their patients.

Influential speakers include:

  • Dr Shimon Friedman, Professor at the Faculty of Dentistry, University of Toronto, Canada;
  • Prof. Mark Wolff, Morton Amsterdam Dean and Professor at the Division of Restorative Dentistry, School of Dental Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, USA;
  • Dr Fadi Yassmin, Founder and Cosmetic Dentist at DFY Dental, Australia; and
  • Dr Roberto Turrini, Dentist and Educator, Dr Mauro Fradeani's Specialised Dentistry Clinic, Italy

"IDEM 2020 will have something meaningful for each person in the dental profession's ecosystem, as we understand that the entire dental team is instrumental when it comes to offering sound dental care to patients," said Dr Lim Lii, President of the Singapore Dental Association. "The conference programme is comprehensive, as it is designed to convey the latest industry trends through to sessions that will inform attendees about new practice areas in dentistry. The Singapore Dental Association is excited that IDEM, the region's top event for dentistry, continues to be anchored in Singapore."

For the first time in Asia, a full conference day will be dedicated to discussing the treatment of patients with special needs in a Special Care Dentistry Symposium. Additionally, together with the Association of Oral Health Therapists Singapore (AOHT), IDEM will also host the third edition of the Dental Hygienist and Therapist Forum. The forum teaches such therapists to manage matters such as dealing with dental fear and anxiety, periodontal probing and patient management, through behavioural and pharmacological techniques.

Global business opportunities

Some 9,000 visitors and in excess of 500 exhibitors will participate at IDEM 2020 which, along with the conference, comprises an exhibition across 20,000 square metres. Presently, 80% of the exhibition space has been pre-sold to global pavilions, manufacturers and distributors. 15 international pavilions will be featured, including first-time participants Spain and Russia.

Along with the exhibition, there are opportunities to network, participate in a buyer programme, or to use an expanded online business matching platform that systematically manages meeting schedules to build connections and unlock business opportunities between visitors, manufacturers and distributors attending IDEM 2020.
