DUBAI, UAE: The UAE International Dental Conference and Arab Dental Exhibition (AEEDC) in Dubai is the gateway to the emerging and far-reaching dental market in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia (MENASA) region.
Again in 2020, and for its 24th edition, a wide range of dental products, equipment and services will be showcased under the theme of “Education and Innovation Transfer”. As one of the largest dental events in the MENASA region, AEEDC Dubai will host a number of practical and interactive activities that will run alongside the exhibition halls from 4 to 6 February.
Since its inception in 1996, AEEDC Dubai has brought the most innovative minds and brands to the stage and floor. Every year, the event unites stakeholders from across the dental spectrum to advance their knowledge and network with like-minded peers. With every edition, the organisers aim to go beyond the usual approach to continuing education. With all the scientific activities, including pre-conference courses, hands-on workshops, competitions and poster presentations, it is an opportunity for participants to become better dental professionals and clinicians. They also gain valuable continuing medical education credits.
Boasting hundreds of international companies distributed over nine exhibition halls and 16 national pavilions (the largest being China, Italy, Germany and South Korea), AEEDC Dubai Exhibition provides a platform to engage customers, demonstrate products, drive brand awareness, conduct face-to-face business and make sales. But the networking possibilities do not stop there: during the coffee breaks, luncheons and AEEDC Dubai Night activities, such as the gala dinner, the event organisers have allowed plenty of time for participants to exchange ideas and discuss the happenings of the day.
Tariq Khoory, AEEDC Dubai honorary chairman, said: “It is immensely satisfying to witness the phenomenal success achieved by AEEDC Dubai over the past 20 years, which owes its tremendous progress to a rich scientific programme, top-quality conference sessions, scientific lectures, workshops, poster presentations, the participation of world’s best scientific talent and more importantly the support of the global dental fraternity.” He continued: “Keeping this in mind, AEEDC Dubai 2020 presents a comprehensive agenda featuring a number of highly specialised pre-conference courses such as Dubai World Dental Meeting and advanced speciality courses to address the most critical topics in dentistry. In addition, high-profile international scientific gatherings, including AEEDC Dubai World Orthodontic Conference 2020, AEEDC Dubai World Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Conference 2020 and World Federation for Laser Dentistry 2020 Dubai Congress, offer advanced dental training to attendees.”
Elaborating on Khoory’s comment, AEEDC Dubai Scientific Chairman Dr Nasser al-Malik explained that “as part of our efforts in the scientific committee, we have prepared an exciting conference programme keeping in mind all the recent advancements in oral healthcare while also addressing the newest digital frontiers and dental traumatology standards via many forums, such as the Digital Dentistry Society Forum, the UCL Eastman Dental Traumatology Forum and the GCC Preventive Dentistry Forum. Running parallel to the conference, AEEDC Dubai Exhibition will host an even larger number of companies, attracting more than 4,000 dental brands and companies from over 50 countries showcasing their newest and most advanced products in dental care with particular emphasis on quality and research in dentistry”.
AEEDC Dubai is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al-Maktoum, deputy ruler of the Emirate of Dubai, minister of finance of the UAE and president of the Dubai Health Authority, and he will officially inaugurate the event tomorrow on 4 February.
