- The in-person IDEM 2022 will be held at Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre from 7-9 October 2022.
- Trade exhibitors comprise 90% of returning exhibitors and 10% of new exhibitors to launch and showcase a variety of brands and products.
IDEM 2022, themed “Building Resilience in Dentistry”, will be held from 7 – 9 October at Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands. Organised by Koelnmesse and the Singapore Dental Association, IDEM 2022 will feature over 30 scientific conference sessions, including hands-on workshops, a full-day masterclass, and exhibits complemented with hybrid elements to ensure a holistic experience for all participants. This is the first physical IDEM after a hiatus brought about by the pandemic.
“As organisers of IDEM, we are excited to bring back the exhibition and conference in-person after four years. While continuing education has been ongoing digitally, based on feedback we have received from our partners, exhibitors, and delegates, the in-person experience cannot be replaced. A physical event will ensure that participants will once again get to connect face-to-face with speakers, exhibitors, and peers to learn about the latest developments in dentistry.” said Mr Mathias Kuepper, Managing Director of Koelnmesse Pte Ltd.
IDEM Singapore is the leading dental exhibition and conference in the Asia-Pacific region. This year, participants at IDEM 2022 can look forward to a series of programmes curated for the dental community:

“We have curated a slew of exciting conference sessions for IDEM 2022 and are excited to introduce one of the brand-new programmes, the Singapore Speaker Series to showcase our local speakers. The IDEM conference will provide participants the opportunity to learn about the latest in clinical research and pick up practical skills as well,” shared Dr Lawrence Yong, the President of Singapore Dental Association. “We are excited to have our SDA Masterclass Speaker Maurizio Tonetti as part of the IDEM Conference and remain committed to delivering the best experience for all delegates by continuing to bring them high quality continuing education sessions,” added Prof Patrick Tseng, Scientific Chairperson of the IDEM 2022.

New IDEM highlights:
- On-site Exclusive — A Singapore Speaker Series featuring Singapore speakers covering a carefully curated selection of topics on comprehensive, conservative approaches to dentistry (not available on the Digital Platform – IDEM360+).
- IDEM360+ — a brand-new digital community platform that offers participants more opportunities to network, connect, share, and learn information before and after IDEM 2022.
- Innovation Arena — a brand new initiative that aims to nurture young companies to grow with IDEM and assist even those in the non-dental sectors to expand their network at IDEM 2022. The Innovation Arena will feature insightful presentations showcasing the latest innovations and products targeted for the dental market.
While the conference will take place in person, it is supplemented by IDEM360+, a digital community platform that adds another layer of experience to IDEM. IDEM360+ enables participants to do business matching, find networking opportunities with the on-site lead generation feature, book meeting slots, watch on-demand content after the actual event day, and more. IDEM360+ also marks a shift towards sustainability for IDEM. In a bid to reduce bulk printed materials, the IDEM360+ digital platform and app will be used as an all-in-one tool for scheduling and navigating the event.
