COLOGNE, Germany: From 14 to 18 March 2023 in Cologne, the International Dental Show (IDS) will be celebrating its 40th edition. As the leading dental trade fair, IDS has been shaping the future of the global dental industry for 100 years. Early in the coming year, it will continue its success story, as over 1,600 exhibitors from 60 countries have registered for the event so far, and 14 group stands from 12 countries are planned.

IDS 2023 will cover a unique, wide-ranging combination of areas, including dental medicine, dental technology, infection protection, maintenance, customer service and communication. According to the organisers, no other dental trade fair presents such a wide spectrum of product offers and services.

After the largest exhibitor participation, which comes from Germany, the next strongest international participation currently comes from Italy, South Korea, France, Switzerland, Spain, Turkey and the US. Additionally, Argentina, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Israel, Italy, Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore, Turkey and the US will be represented by group stands.

IDS 2023 will be staged in Halls 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 and 11 of the Cologne fair grounds on exhibition space spanning around 180,000 m2. A detailed overview of the exhibitors who have already registered for IDS 2023 is available here.


In addition to the physical exhibition, the digital platform IDSconnect will provide information on products and system solutions and enable the streaming of various events, including seminars, webinars, press conferences, corporate presentations and product presentations. It will also allow one-to-one interactions with industry decision makers, increasing international reach and providing a successful trade fair experience. Trade visitors to IDS can go live or call up content at any given time.

IDSconnect is easy to use and intuitive and does not require previous digital experience. All functions are presented as video tutorials on the IDS website, from navigation to networking.
