Don't just take our word for it, the numbers speak for themselves:

Planmeca – Luke Broadhurst – Marketing Director

We come to this Show on a regular basis because we find that over the two days it brings in a mixture of the Dentists from Endodontists to Impact Dentists to Private Dentists, it brings everybody in through the doors, and because we have such a diverse product portfolio, we meet every category. This show allows us to get in front of customers over the course of two days.

It's been very busy, I think the collaboration with the BDA has been a very good move, we've had lots of positive feedback about that and it is very busy. The collaboration is fantastic, it's been called for, for a long time. It's great because it brings the whole profession together, which is what we should be doing, both in terms of exhibitors and delegates.

Acteon – Scott Rogers – Territory Manager

We always come to this show, and usually have a similar presence at the show each year. However, the combination with the BDA was a particular plus for this year, it's increased footfall. It's definitely a positive thing, amalgamating it into this has been great. Footfall has been really good, and we've been meeting high-quality leads during our demos. I really think this show is better than the BDIA.

GSK – Hannah Wilson – Regional Expert Sales Manager

We come here because we get quality interactions with dental healthcare professionals, everyone from dentists, hygienists, also having the DTS is really key for us. So, for us it's about being able to have quality interactions, but also showcase products and get the science of them out there. There's been a lot of these people as well, it's been extremely busy.

Having the BDA collaboration seems to have made the show busier. It's been great, it's been busy from the moment the show opens. We go to a lot of shows, here and abroad. This is definitely the show of the year, the biggest conference for us without doubt.
