Let’s celebrate 100 Years of IDS! Shaping the future since 1923

On behalf of the Koelnmesse Group, welcome to the world’s leading dental fair, the 40th edition of IDS in Cologne, Germany. This year we are excited to showcase products from 1,700+ exhibitors from 60 countries including our important group pavilions from 12 countries.

No other dental meeting worldwide can match the depth of IDS which is showing the newest in technology for suppliers, the trade, dental labs and dentists. Contributing to that spectrum of products are nearly 150 companies from the United States, Canada and Mexico here in Cologne!

A special welcome to the USA Pavilion in Hall 4.2 which features 90 exhibitors this year, a remarkable come-back signaling that the North American dental industry is ready to do business at IDS.

Recognizing that communication happens on many levels, we have boosted the in-person trade show with digital marketing opportunities and expanded IDS’ own APP along with IDSconnect – all tools to help exhibitors and visitors interact more effectively.

Best wishes to all North American exhibitors for a successful event and a big “Thank You” to the organizers of the USA Pavilion, our subsidiary Koelnmesse Inc., and the Dental Trade Alliance (DTA) who supports the international trade activities of its members.
