What The Members Say

As a small business operating in South Australia our membership of ADIA is a real game changer. Not only do we get an effective voice in Canberra but the regional trade shows help our business reach so many new clients.
- Rick Brine Managing Director, City Dental Supplies

From the perspective of my business, a real benefit of ADIA membership is the opportunity provided to build a professional network from businesses big and small. It's great that we can set aside commercial interest and work towards our industry's shared goals.
- Ken McInnes Managing Director Pacific, Ivoclar Vivadent

Australian small businesses looking to export are facing immense challenges and ADIA has been there to support us along the way. From understanding the regulatory framework to overseas exhibition opportunities, ADIA membership is a central tool in our business.
- Andrew Stray Managing Director, Dentalife Australia

What's great about my consultancy's membership of ADIA is not only has it allowed us to attract new clients across the dental industry, it has provided me the chance to make a contribution to advocacy efforts that have contributed to cut government red tape, and progress regulatory reform.
- Clare Martin Principal, Clare Martin & Associates

ADX is a fantastic opportunity for us to meet with our existing and potential purchasers face to face. With everyone in one place, we achieve great brand exposure and receive really valuable feedback about our products from customers. If you want a platform to exchange ideas, talk to buyers and have your biggest sales month of the year, you can't afford not to be there.
- Erik Leinius, Curaprox

ADX provides a great opportunity for us to reach new members from across Australia in one place. Exhibiting at ADX enables us to meet with principal decision makers [or "buyers" if you prefer] and their teams and find out how we can help them be more successful.  By being present at ADX we can connect with our existing customers to simply say Hi, expose them to a new service or introduce them to our partner suppliers personally.
- Sally Williams, Dental Innovations Network

Participating at ADX is an exciting opportunity for our company to engage with the largest number of business decision makers from a national audience. The figures speak for themselves. With each event, the number of visitors to our stand, quality leads and sales continue to surpass previous years.
- Elizabeth Bozinovska, Ampac Dental

ADX is an effective pipeline to business owners and professionals who are ready to buy. The event is only every two years and it's a must-attend for lead generation and sales.
- Brad Race / Carlene Matkovich, Race Dental / Marda Investments

ADX is the biggest event we attend. It's a great way to get access to key decision-makers in the mood to buy, and generates a lot quality leads.
- Simon Taggart, A-dec

Corporate members manufacture, supply and/or distribute dental products within Australia. Consistent with their obligations under the Therapeutic Goods Act 1989 (Cth) the products that these businesses supply will appear on the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG) as managed by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA).
Affiliate members provide services to dental practices or sell products that are not listed on the ARTG (and not eligible to join under another category). Examples include suppliers of furniture and dental practice fit-out companies. Other businesses in this category also provide professional service firms such as accountants, lawyers, insurers, business consultants and marketing firms
The customers or major commercial focus of ADIA Associate Members are dental industry suppliers -  those businesses that manufacture and supply dental products and provide services to dental practices. Businesses in this membership category include publishers that derive advertising revenue from dental product suppliers, regulatory affairs consultants which provide advice to dental products suppliers, or financial institutions that may partner with dental product suppliers to provide finance for capital purchases.
International members do not have a presence in Australia, and do not sell products and/or services in Australia, but wish to maintain an awareness of changes to the Australian commercial, technical and regulatory environment.
