The Scottish Dental Show has firmly established itself as one of the most important dates in the Scottish dentistry calendar and the biggest event of its kind in the country.
Organised by Connect, who also publish Scottish Dental magazine, the 2016 event welcomed nearly 2,000 people through the doors, a 23 per cent increase on the year before.
The speaker sessions also saw record numbers with two speaker sessions attracting crowds of more than 300, with five other sessions welcoming more than 200 delegates
The show also saw a packed trade show featuring 140 exhibitors and some of the biggest names in the industry.
Feedback for the 2016 event saw 88 per cent of delegates rating the show as either ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’ and 94 per cent saying they are planning on coming back next year.
Exhibitors were also generous in their praise with 77 per cent rating the show as ‘Excellent’ or ‘Good’, 92 per cent rating the organisation as ‘Extremely Organised’ or ‘Very Organised’ and 85 per cent saying they were either ‘Extremely Satisfied’ or ‘Satisfied’ with the show as a whole.
The 2016 Show also saw the fourth Scottish Dental Awards Dinner and Ceremony, held this year at the five-star Glasgow Hilton Hotel. Nearly 450 guests were in attendance to celebrate the great and the good of Scottish dentistry.
Planning for 2017 is well under way and the exhibition space is already more than 60 per cent full as the dental trade puts its considerable support behind the annual show.
