Even 12 000 dentists from around the world are likely to participate in the FDI Annual World Dental Congress that will be held at MTP fairground in 2016. This is a tremendous success of Poznan. Such large and important meetings are still very rare in Poland.
The FDI Annual World Dental Congress will be the largest international medical congress in the history of Poznan. It will be held from 7 to 10 September 2016. The scientific and training event will be held in at least six MTP halls. During the four-day event, participants of the congress will get acquainted with the most innovative treatment techniques and innovations in diagnosis and therapy. The conference will be accompanied by a trade fair and a series of business, workshop and networking meetings.
Efforts to attract the FDI congress have been made for over a year. One of the most important stages of negotiations was the study visit of three representatives of the organiser in November last year. Such a prestigious partner and exhibitor has been acquired through the combined efforts of the Polish Dental Society, Poznan Convention Bureau, EXACTUS company and Poznan International Fair.
In addition to obvious business and image benefits for the city, arranging such a prestigious scientific event in Poznan will also be of great importance for the promotion of Polish science in the world. The congress will be attended by a large number of students of medical and dental faculties of nine university centers (Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk, Poznan, Lodz, Bialystok, Wroclaw, Katowice and Lublin) and young scientists.
Each year the congress organized by the FDI – World Dental Federation is held in a different location. Previous editions of the event were held, among others, in Hong Kong, Dubai, Mexico, Singapore and Salvador and New Delhi.
