SYDNEY, Australia: The organisers of the 2016 Australian Dental Exhibition (ADX16) have encouraged dental companies to secure their exhibition space at Australia’s premier dental event. They have reported having already sold close to 95 per cent of exhibition booths in the first sales release. ADX16 will take place from 18 to 20 March 2016 and is expected to draw a record number of dentists and allied oral health care professionals.


The exhibition will span about 13,000 m² and showcase the latest products from Australia and overseas, many of which are to be launched on the Australian market for the first time at the event. The process of allocating exhibition space has almost been completed. The organisers will be opening the next sales release on 26 October to sell the remaining booths.

Since its establishment in 2006, ADX, which is held every two years, has cemented itself as the must-attend trade show for both the dental profession and the dental industry.

In 2014, around 6,000 visitors registered for ADX, including dentists (43 per cent), dental practice managers (11 per cent), dental assistants (10 per cent) and laboratory technicians (9 per cent), and similar numbers are expected for 2016 . In addition, there will be approximately 2,000 representatives of more than 140 product and service suppliers exhibiting. Thus, more than 8,000 stakeholders from across Australia’s dental community are expected to attend the event.

The Sydney Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island will again host ADX next year. The decision was made by the Australian Dental Industry Association based on extensive feedback from exhibitors and visitors.

ADX 16 will also feature a dental laboratory pavilion and an extensive continuing professional development programme.
