100 years International Dental Show – shaping the dental future!
40th IDS in a new dimension
The upcoming 40th International Dental Show is enjoying great popularity – to date there is more than 850 exhibitor registrations from 50 countries. The 40th IDS can already be eagerly anticipated with many proven and innovative concepts and products. And here’s to “100 years IDS”!

According to the current number of registrations, conditions for a diverse exchange of ideas are very favourable. The over 850 registered exhibitors include many international market leaders and exciting international group participations. Registrations are increasing weekly.

The biggest exhibitor contingent up to now is Germany, followed by Italy, Republic of Korea, France, Switzerland and the USA. A number of international group participations have also already confirmed they will take part, for example from Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and the USA. IDS 2023 will cover Halls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 of the Cologne exhibition centre with a gross exhibition area of approximately 180,000 square meters.

This loyalty and high presence of the international dental industry makes the 40th IDS 2023 an anchor of stability and a beacon for orientation in a turbulent time – with a clear vision for the future, in the full spirit of the IDS motto: “100 years IDS – shaping the dental future”.

For about one hundred years the IDS has been successfully bringing dentists, dental technicians and their teams together with industry and sales representatives to an intensive expert exchange. It constantly involves direct, important development of products and system solutions for practice and laboratory with concrete benefits for patients as well as resulting increasing opportunities for all involved.

The International Dental Show was and is a stabilising factor in the past one hundred years, even in turbulent times such as now. This is because the history of the fair began in the middle of a crises year with massive hyperinflation, which eclipses everything that we experience in inflation at the present time. The IDS has defied all challenges and negative conditions in 100 years and consequently followed its aim of being a cosmopolitan event in fair performance-based competition before a highly competent and critical specialist audience.

The dental industry in Europe takes on a pioneering role with its innovation strength in many future-oriented key technologies. The specialist dental trade is an important support and link between manufacturer and end user of dental medical technology. With its presence and consultancy expertise it brings the parties together, both at the fair itself and also in the daily routine of dentists and dental technicians and contributes overall to a high level of service.

The opportunities to inspire patients for customised dental and dental laboratory services are good. The Corona pandemic, in particular, has sensitised many people for healthcare issues. An increasing number of people are prepared to invest more in their oral and dental health, because it significantly contributes to the quality of life.

The anniversary edition of the IDS will again present a wealth of innovations, which will support and broaden the treatment diversity of dentistry and dental technology.

The GFDI – Society for Advancement of the Dental Industry mbH, the VDDI – Association of German Dental Manufacturers, and the Koelnmesse are on the same page: “The IDS is the global leading trade fair for the dental industry, which as a platform for innovations and market trends ensures long-term success. The anniversary edition 2023 will demonstrate this impressively.”
