Madrid will host the 105th edition of the FDI World Dental Congress from 29 August to 1 September

Madrid. 22 June 2017. - Madrid is getting ready to host the FDI World Dental Congress 2017 at IFEMA from 29 August to 1 September.

The FDI World Dental Congress is one of the world’s oldest international events and is held annually by one of the oldest medical organisations. The FDI Congress is the main international meeting point for sharing policy, information and ideas about dentistry and oral health. It is also a highly reliable source of continuing education that allows dentists and other oral health professionals to stay abreast of the latest technologies, techniques and practices. It regularly offers courses in more than 30 countries. It also includes the World Oral Health Forum, which is an opportunity to debate what is happening in oral health and related matters.

This multidisciplinary congress has an exceptional scientific programme, which attracts top level national and international professionals to give talks on the latest technological advances in dentistry and oral health. It is a great opportunity for dentists wanting to up-to-date information on different fields of the profession, since this knowledge can be put into practice.

Continuous education is still an extremely important aspect of this meeting, as well as practical workshops, meetings with speakers, working lunches and visits to the trade exhibition.

  A dynamic sector

The dental industry is an essential partner for the oral health profession. Their symbiotic relationship is even more important today, due to new materials, technology and treatment philosophies.  An indicator of this dynamism are the great expectations for the meeting, which is breaking all previous records, with 1,020 Abstracts (486 Posters and 534 Oral Communications) which have been received from authors in 46 countries, far more than the number of works sent to all previous FDI conferences, which will make it the dental event of the decade.

This four-day congress will be attended by visitors and exhibitors from more than 90 countries. In addition, around 350 exhibitors and more attendees to the Congress than ever are expected (there were 12,000 at the 2016 event). Among the attendees will be experts in Odontology, Periodontics, Endodontics and Oral Surgery from all over the world.

Madrid has hosted three World Dental Congresses, including one of the first annual meetings, in 1903, by invitation of Spanish doctor: Florestan Aguilar, who was one of the founding fathers of the FDI. He was once its President and General Secretary, and he was a member of the Federation for more than 30 years.

Spain, fourth European market

 According to Eurostat 2016 statistics, of the 330,000 dentists in Europe, almost a tenth are in Spain (32,429, meaning that it is the fourth dental market of the continent. Annual sales of dental equipment way are worth more than 65 million euro, while growth in the dental market is at an estimated 2% per year.

General programme:


The objectives of the Congress are:

• Gather scientific experts from around the world to catalyse and make progress in scientific knowledge on oral health, present the results of recent research, and promote and improve scientific cooperation around the world.

• Bring together community leaders, scientists and politicians to promote and improve programmed collaboration to better cover regional, national and local response to oral health problems around the world, overcoming the barriers that limit access to prevention, attention and services.

REHABITAR MADRID, a space specialised in home renovation and upgrades

This joint initiative by the Madrid City Council and IFEMA will be held in Plaza de España from 22 to 24 September


REHABITAR MADRID is a new event organised by IFEMA and the Sustainable Urban Development Department of Madrid City Council, to take place from 22 to 24 September in the Plaza de España, in Madrid. The initiative is part of the set of measures established in the Plan MAD-RE.


With the message "Looking after your house, you look after yourself", aimed at the public, and with free access, this innovative initiative, which combines an exhibition area and a large information area, is intended to serve as a platform for raising residents’ awareness of the benefits of upgrading and rehabilitating buildings, spaces and homes with criteria of comfort, efficiency and accessibility.


REHABITAR MADRID will be a gathering of social-economic agents, professionals and the interested public, to promote citizens’ knowledge of the values, benefits and solutions for rehabilitation of homes and buildings. It is intended to become a means of raising awareness among citizens of their duty to maintain their properties and an opportunity to become more energy efficient on the road to universal accessibility. All this is achieved with an educational campaign on the benefits of rehabilitation for users, from the point of view of improving wellbeing inside, reducing energy consumption and emissions, etc.


In this context, the event will be particularly important for spreading the word about the new grant and subsidy plan (PLAN MAD-RE) for homes, developed by the Governance Area to improve accessibility conditions, efficient energy conservation, and the Urban Regeneration Strategy that establishes a model focused on the existing city.


REHABITAR MADRID also seeks to stimulate the building sector and its potential to create local employment, by showing citizens some of the techniques available in this sector by means of prototypes, examples and past experiences. To achieve this, the exhibition space will contain exhibitions by 100 companies of their rehabilitation solutions. There will be everything from windows, floors and doors to building materials, lifts, climate control, lighting, home automation, to renovation companies, interior design, financial institutions, bodies and associations.


Plaza de España has been chosen as the ideal venue for REHABITAR MADRID, this being one of the most iconic spots in the city for the City of Madrid’s initiatives. It represents the value of rehabilitating urban spaces, with the winning project chosen by its residents, known as “Project X”.

The Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid, organised by IFEMA, will be holding its 66th edition from 14th to 19th September at Feria de Madrid. For six days this new edition of the biggest Spanish design showcase in the world will present proposals from the biggest creative names in our country, including new talents, confirming the huge wealth of creativity that exists today.


The fashion parades will take place from the 15th to 19th at Hall 14.1 of IFEMA-Feria de Madrid, and the day before then, on the 14th, the fashion shows and presentations will be performed outside IFEMA, by direct invitation from the designer. Furthermore, MBFWM will host an interesting side program.


The calendar of fashion parades, which will be disclosed soon, strengthens Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid's leadership as one of the greatest events in the fashion universe, and further demonstrates the permanent and decisive support that this show has offered Spanish fashion for over thirty years by progressively bringing the most important national designers into its programme. Since its inception in February 1985, the MBFWM fashion show has hosted the fashion parades of more than 300 Spanish designers.


As usual, the last day of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid fashion show programme will address the emergent design of Samsung EGO, an essential creative force for the regeneration of Spanish fashion that, in its eleven years running, has become an intermediary between young talents and the fashion industry, the media and textile companies. Furthermore, fifteen young creators will be exhibiting their creations at the Samsung Ego Showroom in Cibelespacio during MBFWMadrid.


With the 66th edition of the MBFWM fashion show the city of Madrid will once again become one of the major world capitals of fashion and, as in previous years, it will host a variety of fashion-related activities throughout the city.



The forthcoming edition of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Madrid will once again receive significant support from sponsoring brands. In total, 16 brands will be sponsoring the event. Mercedes-Benz, L’Oréal and Inditex are its main sponsors.


Samsung, Anna de Codorniu, Iberia, Solán de Cabras and Ciroc are sponsors; Facebook/Instagram, hotel Barceló Torre de Madrid, ESNE, Rowenta, Kaiku Caffé Latte Schweppes and Rodilla are collaborators, and Signus and Ecoembes are participating as sustainable entities.
