The EXPODENTAL 2024 project
There are signs that EXPODENTAL 2024 will attract a large number of participants, above and beyond the figures achieved at the 2022 edition, which had 329 direct exhibitors - 238 national and 91 international from 17 countries; 542 exhibiting companies and 26,154 trade visitors, primarily from Portugal, Italy, Germany, France, and Argentina. The stand allocation procedure for the new edition, which will occupy Halls 4, 6, and 8 on the Recinto Ferial, will take place on 26, 27 and 28 September on the IFEMA MADRID site.
This time, Italy will be the guest country at EXPODENTAL, an initiative organised at every event that focuses on a country or region of interest to exhibitors to encourage their trade professionals to attend by offering a series of advantages to facilitate their visits.
EXPODENTAL will also allocate a dedicated space to the Training Sector, with information about interesting academic opportunities in undergraduate, postgraduate, and continuing vocational training, with the participation of universities, training centres, scientific societies, universities, professional associations, and companies. The Training Area will also have a specific area for activities where participating companies can give presentations and talks with its own Speakers’ Corner.
Likewise, and as usual, the educational side of EXPODENTAL will include Student Day on Thursday, March 14, an activity open to 4th and 5th-year dental students, as well as future hygienists and dental technicians.
As well as the trade show, a series of presentations will be organised by exhibiting companies. These will be hosted in Speakers’ Corners at EXPODENTAL and will include explanations of new technologies, solutions and treatments developed in the last two years. At the 2022 edition, Speakers’ Corners featured 54 presentations that 1,125 attendees watched.
EXPODENTAL offers a hybrid formula in addition to the in-person participation of companies and professionals that makes use of the LIVEConnect platform. This adds value for all participants and is a proven tool for increasing opportunities for networking for exhibitors and visitors.
Dental Sector Market
The value of the dental market in Spain in 2022 is estimated to have a turnover of over 930 million euros. If we also consider the teeth aligner business has reached 1,1 billion euros, this means growth of 2.4% with respect to 2021, consolidating compared to 2020 when it had already grown significantly.
