Annual Dental Tradeshow Weathers Economic Storm
Date:3/11/2009

While attendance in general declined by 9 percent, a review of the attendance figures shows that the number of dentists attending decreased only by 7% and dental hygienists by 8%.

Below are the attendance numbers for select categories. 2008 figures are listed in parentheses for comparison.

  • Dentists 7,246 (7,772)
  • Dental hygienists 3,883 (4,216)
  • Dental assistants 3,161 (3,699)
  • Dental office personnel 2,248 (2,642)
  • Dental technicians 369 (464)
  • Dental students 675 (820)
  • Dental hygiene or dental assistant students 1,603 (1,398)
  • Dental trade 871 (1,262)
  • Exhibitor attendees 9,061 (9,991)

The category showing the steepest decline was dental trade, which includes dental product manufacturers and distributors. This 30% drop was not unexpected, however, as attendance among this group usually falls during years in which the biennial International Dental Show in Cologne, Germany, is held.

International attendance was 1,457. Although this represented a 26% drop from 2008, it was keeping with a decade-long trend in which international attendance waxes and wanes based on when the IDS is held.

The top five countries most represented at the meeting were:

  • Canada 411
  • United Kingdom 241
  • Mexico 143
  • Germany 66
  • Japan 60

In comparison, the top five states most represented at the meeting were:

  • Illinois 12,047
  • Wisconsin 1,987
  • Indiana 1,749
  • Michigan 1,691
  • Ohio 561
