Digital tickets for IDS 2021 now available
COLOGNE, Germany: As the 39th International Dental Show (IDS) is rapidly approaching, the organisers have announced that registration is now open. Different from past years, tickets can only be obtained in a digital format, which will help to avoid close contact, a safety measure owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
IDS is one of the most prominent global dental industry platforms. Originally planned for March, the event will now take place from 22 to 25 September and will be comparably smaller in size to ensure a safe trade fair experience. According to organiser Koelnmesse, IDS 2021 will offer the dental industry a fresh outlook as it slowly resumes business, and the show will have around 830 exhibitors from 56 countries, including China, Russia and the US.
Those planning to attend the event can now purchase their digital, named-day-only tickets from the ticket shop on the IDS website and download the tickets to a smartphone in the form of QR codes. As the organisers explained, the online tickets will facilitate the collection of contact data for use in case of coronavirus infection. As safety is a major pillar of IDS 2021, participants will also be asked to provide recognised digital proof of vaccination, COVID-19 recovery or a SARS-CoV-2-negative test result upon entering the trade fair premises. Finally, those who are unable to attend owing to travel or other restrictions related to COVID-19 are invited to use the free digital event platform, IDSconnect.
