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.

Register Now for ADX SYD & SIDCON22

Australia’s premier dental industry event just got a whole lot bigger.

The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) and the Australian Dental Association of NSW (ADA NSW) have combined to deliver the largest oral health and networking event of 2022.

ADX Sydney and the Sydney International Dental Conference (SIDCON22) will be held over four days - 16 to 19 March 2022 - at the Sydney International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour.

SIDCON22 16-17 March, 2022, is a new event showcasing International Speakers presenting the latest breakthroughs, regulations, news and insights. From SIDCON22 delegates will go straight to Australia’s premier dental industry event, ADX Sydney 17-19 March.

A highlight of the combined event will be the Wednesday evening ferry ride from Darling Harbour to Luna Park to watch the sun set over the Harbour and play your part in what will be Australia’s largest oral health networking event.

“This event is a great opportunity to further empower dental professionals and improve the delivery of oral health for all Australians,” said ADA NSW President Dr Kathleen Matthews.

“The combination of ADX Sydney and SIDCON22 underlines our commitment to delivering the best possible value for our respective members.

"I expect the combined event will bring more than 10,000 delegates through the doors and over the next six years grow to be one of the largest oral health events in the Asia Pacific Region,” said ADIA CEO Kym De Britt.
