With the FDI World Dental Congress 2023 (WDC 2023) now well less than a year away (to held 24th to Wednesday 27th September 2023), it was fitting recently that key groups involved in the event gathered at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Sydney to preview next year’s exciting global dental event.
Among those who attended presentations, either in person or via video link, in the ICC venue which overlooks Darling Harbour where the WDC 2023 will be staged, were host organisation, the Australian Dental Association, the FDI World Dental Federation, key sponsors such as Henry Schein, Oral-B and TP, the the National Organising Committee overseeing planning of WDC 2023, Business Events Sydney, the ICC team and the ADA staff charged with making the event as successful as possible.
Not only was the event intended to stoke excitement for the first in-person World Dental Congress since 2019 in San Francisco and the in-real-life following to the highly ADA-hosted virtual World Dental Congress in 2021, but it enabled those who attended to grasp the full scope of the event to come.
By any measure, the 110th edition of the annual Congress will be impressive.
The four-day scientific programme, featuring leading dental experts from Australia and around the world, will be accompanied by a 25,000 square metre exhibition – excitingly the first booking was made on the day of the presentation – and over 200 hours of professional learning opportunities.
Plus with one of the most beautiful cities in the world on the doorstep – the ICC representatives pointed out that Sydney has the rare distinction of having its venue right in the heart of the city – there will be plenty of chance to network with friends and colleagues in all kinds of convivial settings.
With attendees expected in their multiple thousands from more than 130 countries across the world, and attendant events like the FDI Parliament, where the business of world dental governance takes place, and the FDI Young Dentists Forum, WDC 2023 is set to be the largest dental event ever to be held in Australia.
