The signing ceremony
KOELNMESSE, Persatuan Dokter Gigi Indonesia (Indonesian Dental Association) and PEO Traya Eksibisi Internasional have signed an agreement to jointly stage the first Indonesia Dental Exhibition & Conference.
On why Koelnmesse decided to stage a dental event in Indonesia, managing director Mathias Kuepper said: “Indonesia’s healthcare industry is expected to grow by up to 20 per cent yearly, which points to an emerging need for a platform for dental professionals to learn more about well-established and effective technologies, research and skills.”
Farichah Hanum, president of Persatuan Dokter Gigi Indonesia, added: “Indonesia has over 27,000 dentists nationwide, who face unique challenges in their daily practice. The city of Jakarta, with over 5,000 dentists, was chosen to host this new event because it is the central business and travel hub for Indonesia.”
The event will take place in Jakarta from September 15-17, 2017.
It will be held every odd year, alternating with IDEM Singapore, a regional dental exhibition and conference that caters to the South-east Asian market. In contrast with IDEM Singapore, the Indonesia Dental Exhibition & Conference will offer an extensive trade exhibition, localised educational programme, and provide a platform for manufacturers keen on penetrating the emerging Indonesian market.
