SINGAPORE: The highly anticipated 13th International Dental Exhibition and Meeting (IDEM 2024) concluded on 21 April at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre with record-breaking success. IDEM 2024 welcomed 8,917 attendees from 74 countries and regions, exceeding the previous participation record by 36%. The event offered a showcase of cutting-edge dental innovations and expertise, spanning over 17,000 m2 of exhibition space.

Commenting on the event’s achievements, Mathias Küpper, managing director and vice president for Asia Pacific at Koelnmesse in Singapore, said: “The success of IDEM 2024 was based on the reputation and the credibility we have developed here in Singapore for over 20 years. The feedback from the exhibitors and the delegates has been excellent. We will build on what we have achieved this year here at IDEM and continue to emphasise a quality, high-level scientific programme and bring the latest technologies and innovations to future editions of IDEM.”

The exhibition floor hosted 500 exhibitors showcasing 629 brands from 35 countries and regions, covering prosthodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, paediatric dentistry and more. There were 12 national pavilions, representing Australia, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the US. Exhibitors presented their newly launched products and unveiled their latest technologies, highlighting IDEM’s role as a go-to launch pad for dental brands in the Asia Pacific region.

In addition to the exhibition, IDEM 2024 featured a comprehensive scientific conference programme and hands-on workshops, presented by 44 speakers. The sessions included the Dental Hygienist and Therapist Forum and the inaugural Asian Speaker Series and covered a wide range of topics across three tracks running concurrently. The lecture titled “SDA Masterclass: The black, white and gray of crack management” attracted 904 delegates, making it the most attended session of the conference programme.

The event also offered networking and educational opportunities for dentistry professionals and aspiring dentists at the Innovation Arena. Additionally, the student programme, themed “Crafting Bright Smiles, Shaping Future Dentists”, provided a platform for dental students to connect with industry leaders and build valuable connections with mentors.

With the resounding success of this year’s event, IDEM looks forward to welcoming attendees to the next edition, which will take place on 17–19 April 2026 at Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, promising even more innovation, education and collaboration.
