The Australian Dental Industry Association has reported that all exhibition space for the upcoming Australian Dental Expo - ADX 2008 - has sold out. Some 128 companies are participating with a total of 420 booths spaces occupied for the 3-day event being staged on March 28-30, 2008.
"ADX is fully subscribed and we have a waiting list of companies wanting to exhibit," said ADIA executive office, Duncan Campbell. "For the dental community, this means it's a great opportunity to inspect and discuss all things dental with the vast majority of dental suppliers in Australia."
ADX 2008 will cover two full halls at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre at Darling Harbour and some 4,500 visitors are expected to attend.
Visiting the 3-day ADX show is an ideal way to be rapidly educated on all the latest products and services available and meet the people promoting them first hand. In addition, it is often a chance to meet many of the technical and specialist representatives from dental companies in Australia and internationally and quiz them about their offerings.
"If you're considering a refit or renovation at your practice, then ADX is the perfect opportunity to see, touch, feel and purchase the gamut of dental products and equipment," Mr Campbell said. "You can also speak first hand to surgery design and fit out companies to help make the dream a reality as well as specialist finance companies who can help ease the fiscal burden.
"In dentistry, the most precious commodity is time and organising a major purchase or purchases throughout the working day and trying to solicit information from multiple vendors is always a challenge. Blocking off a day or two for ADX means you can see everything under the one roof and focus your attention to the project and accomplish much more in a shorter period of time."
Mr Campbell said often the quest for that one unique product that will solve a dilemma can be found at the show as well as complete alternate solutions.
"When you're considering a new or updated practice, the choices you make now are with you for years to come, so ADX ensures you are aware of all the options. The new look ADX is designed to make the trade show experience more enjoyable to the point where the only difficult thing to do is make a choice."
ADX is a professional trade show and is open to all members of the dental community. Free online registration is now available on the ADIA website located at www.adia.org.au. ADX is not open to the general public and registration in advance is encouraged to avoid delays.
