ADIA CEO Update: COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update

As depicted in the graph below, there has been a significant drop in the number of COVID-19 cases reported across Australia since the peak in January. If the trend continues to follow forecasting, this should see a boost in consumer confidence leading into March and hopefully a prosperous 2022 after the uncertainty we've had the last two years.

ADX Sydney 2022

With only six weeks to go until ADX Sydney 2022 kicks off at the ICC, industry confidence remains high with over 3000 delegate registrations and 180 exhibitors confirmed. We expect to put out the sold out sign by the end of the month given the current enquiries and increasing demand from organisations wanting to exhibit at ADX.

ADIA CEO Update - ADX Sydney 2022

ADIA CEO Update - ADX Sydney 2022


ADX Sydney 2022


The Australian Dental Industry Association wishes to advise members and exhibitors that the upcoming ADX Sydney 2022 at the International Convention Centre (ICC) at this point in time is still planning to proceed on 17-19 March 2022.


At this stage, the NSW Government does not envisage implementing restrictions to prevent large events from proceeding. The current medical advice from NSW Health indicates that we've reached peak infection rates and should see case numbers dropping over the next few weeks.


The ADIA will implement the same robust COVID-safe strategy we had at ADX Sydney 2020 and ADX Melbourne 2021, including the use of face masks, sanitisation stations, and controlled entry and exit points.


There are currently 180 exhibitors confirmed, with a waitlist of 56 organisations wanting to exhibit at ADX and only 24 booths remaining for sale.


Delegate confidence in the community remains high. At the end of this week in 2018, we had 1406 registrations. In 2020 we had 1605 registrations. And as of today, we have 2720, almost double the registrations for the same time in 2018.

Over the next three weeks, we will monitor the situation closely and continue to update members and exhibitors on a weekly basis to advise of any changes leading up to the event.




HAVE YOUR SAY! To ensure we are continuing to provide services that are most valuable to you, please complete this quick survey: Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
