The BDCDS and DTS events will now take place 13th-14th May 2022
CloserStill Media, organisers of the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show (BDCDS) and Dental Technology Showcase (DTS) have made the carefully considered decision to postpone the event until May 2022. The joint event will now take place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May 2022 at the Birmingham NEC, hall 5.
Martin Woodrow (above) Chief Executive of the BDA said: “As we are all aware, the COVID-19 situation in England is continually developing, and after careful consideration, the decision to reschedule feels appropriate given current circumstances and ongoing uncertainty. However, I have no doubt that the 2022 conference will be the biggest, best and most impressive event yet!”
Talking about the postponement of DTS Steven Campbell, President of the Dental Laboratories Association (DLA) added: “As we are all aware, the COVID-19 situation in England is continually developing, and after careful consideration, the decision to reschedule has been made out of an abundance of caution. However, I have no doubt that 2022’s DTS will be more than worth the wait”
The BDCDS is the UK’s leading two-day exhibition and conference for dental professionals, and DTS is the leading event for dental laboratory owners and dental technicians. Together they provide clinical, technical, leadership and practical training via an extensive educational programme and hands-on workshops.
BDCDS is the UK’s largest event of its kind, attracting over 9000 unique delegates and over 400 exhibitors, while DTS attracts over 2000 delegates and more than 60 exhibitors. In the meantime, CloserStill Media will be focusing on how they can support the profession as the team continue to work through this very challenging time.
Alex Harden, Event Director for BDCDS and DTS at CloserStill Media said: “Over the past few months, we have been diligently assessing the landscape of the return of in-person events for the dentistry community. This decision has been made due to the lack of clarity around future government restrictions on large scale gatherings due to COVID-19 and the fact that the safety of our communities is of upmost importance to us.
“Our team is more devoted than ever to creating engaging, practical resources for continuing education and industry growth in a digital world. Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times and we trust you and your families are safe and well.”
