“… It goes without saying that I will visit the fair personally, meet up with plenty of trade visitors and hold interesting discussions with them."
Said Dr. Martin Rickert, Chairman of the VDDI (Association of the German Dental Manufacturers). And in the same way as Dr. Rickert, BDM Tristan Elliott and MD Brian Combe of i4 Product Design Consultancy will be visiting the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne this month. Although having travelled to Germany on numerous occasions for other medical trade-shows with support from Scottish Development International such as Medica, this will be our first time at IDS with the aim to introduce ourselves and network with a wide variety of businesses attending on the 24th of March.
The IDS is the worlds largest biennial dental show that promotes the latest innovative dental devices, with around 2,199 exhibitors from 59 countries and more than 139,00 trade visitors from 150 countries expecting to attend. To be able to meet with businesses from all over the globe under one roof is exciting and a rare occasion, so we are motivated to take full advantage of this opportunity.
You can meet Tristan and Brian at the show. We are very interested in approaching Dental/Medical Device manufacturers to learn the latest trends in dental care and to see where we can best apply our product design & development expertise. We have a wealth of experience working with both international brands such as the Nikon Group and growing UK based medical device manufacturers. Over the past 13 years we have grown our design and engineering team, which has now supported our clients with the successful delivery of 150 products to market.
The IDS requires a lot of preparation as it is one of the largest exhibition i4 has ever attended. Thanks to i4’s marketing team, we have a packed schedule with some very interesting companies, which we are excited to see.
If your company does have an interest in the further development of your product(s), it would be great to connect during the show to learn more about your existing range and discuss any opportunities. This event is held once every two years, so let’s make the most of it!
If you would like to meet, you can get in touch with Maj at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a meeting on the 24th.
