Sino-Dental cancels 2020 event
BEIJING, China: The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose major challenges for the dental industry, especially regarding events. In light of the current restrictions, the organisers of Sino-Dental have decided to cancel this year’s edition, which was supposed to take place at the China National Convention Center in August. For now, the event, the 26th China International Dental Exhibition and Scientific Conference, has been rescheduled to 9–12 June 2021.
In a press release, the Sino-Dental organising committee expressed its regret at the cancellation: “The safety of our partners and exhibitors is always our priority. In spite of our every effort in the past months to push forward with all the preparatory work as scheduled, with the pandemic lingering, we have failed to obtain the essential approvals from relative authorities for the preliminary date of mid–late August.”
Sino-Dental is planning to present a series of selected flagship events online, to initiate virtual workshops and to release a report on dental development in the country in the coming weeks. More details will be released on its website.
As one of the largest dental exhibitions in China, Sino-Dental has become a benchmark dental show that enjoys an excellent reputation in both China and Asia generally and has a 24-year history. On an exhibition area of 50,000 m2, more than 800 from 30 countries and regions around the world were expected to showcase their latest innovations to thousands of visitors. In 2019, almost 130,000 participants attended Sino-Dental.
Sino-Dental strives to introduce and promote advanced technologies and products; to provide a platform for national and international dental companies to demonstrate images, gain access to market information, learn advanced technologies and develop new products; and to provide opportunities for exhibitors and dental professionals to communicate and exchange experiences.
