For Manufacturers — Overseas Trade Shows

One of the best ways for local dental product manufacturers to reach new overseas markets is by being part of Australian pavilions at major international trade shows.

The Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) offers discounted space to member businesses participating in two of the largest B2B dental trade shows in the world, the IDS Cologne and IDEM Singapore exhibitions.

The support provided to businesses exhibiting within the Australian pavilion at these events includes provision of a fully-furnished exhibition booth with pictorial signage, a listing in the pavilion director, on-site locked storage and use of a hospitality area where you can meet with prospective clients. To raise your business’ profile, at the end of each day of the exhibition an informal reception is held.

IDS Cologne
9-13 March 2021, Germany

The International Dental Show (IDS) attracts around 2,400 exhibitors from sixty countries that present the latest products, developments, and trends of the dental industry. More than 150,000 international trade visitors attend IDS Cologne when it is held every two years. [Read More]

IDEM Singapore
24-26 April 2020, Singapore

One of South-East Asia's major tradeshows with a reputation of allowing manufacturers the ability to reach both distributors and dental professionals, the IDEM Singpore exhibition will showcase cutting edge technology to 9,000+ people from seventy countries.

ADIA's focus is to provide Australian dental product manufacturers with a cost-effective way to meet prospective distributors in new markets. One of the great ways we do this is by helping businesses attract Australian Government funding through programs such as the Export Market Development Grant (EMDG) scheme.

If your business is looking forward to expanding its overseas presence and would like to be part of something special, contact the ADIA Exhibitions Team via email at or by telephone on 1300 943 094 to review options to partipate in either the IDS Cologne or IDEM Singapore exhibitions.
