Preparations in full swing for 2020

After breaking previous records this year, preparations for the Scottish Dental Show 2020 – are well under way.

The two-day event, at the Intu Braehead Arena on 24 and 25 April, brings people from far and wide to meet fellow professionals and find out about the sector’s latest developments.

Voted a huge success in 2019 by visitors, exhibitors, as well as award nominees and winners, the show promises to be even bigger and better in 2020.

With more than 130 exhibitors demonstrating the latest technology and developments in dentistry, up to nine hours of CPD, and more than 60 lectures and workshops from professionals covering a multitude of topics, delegates will have plenty to see and do.

The show’s Education Programme, validated by NHS Education for Scotland, will feature dedicated streams on eCPD, Clinical Skills, Business & Management, and Education & Training. Those eligible can also claim CPDA for any session where they attended two consecutive lectures.

In an exciting development, the ever-popular Scottish Dental Awards will now be a stand-alone celebration held in the autumn (11 September 2020, at the Glasgow Hilton).

The decision will allow exhibitors and delegates to the Show more time to meet and engage with their fellow professionals as well as providing the Awards with a bigger platform to reflect the occasion’s growing status.

Connect managing director Alan Ramsay said: “The number of delegates approached  3,000 in 2019 – it’s clear that we have become the must-attend dental event in Scotland.

“More than 60 per cent of exhibition stands are already booked for 2020, and we’re gearing up for a fantastic two days of engagement and learning next April.

“Our awards have also grown to be the premier celebration for honouring the best in the Scottish dental profession, so establishing them as a stand-alone event in September gives the occasion the stature it deserves.”
