Aussie Dental Product Manufacturers Take On Asia

Aussie Dental Product Manufacturers Take On Asia

24th Apr 18

Summary —

Australia’s leading manufacturers of dental products showcased their reputation in the Australian pavilion at the IDEM Singapore dental show held over 13-15 April 2018.

Key Issues For The Dental Industry —

The Australian Pavilion at the IDEM Singapore provided an opportunity for the nation’s leading suppliers of dental products to reach new markets in South-East Asia. 

Along with the ADX Sydney dental exhibition, IDEM Singapore is recognised as a key business-to-business event where Australian dental product manufacturers are able to cement relationships with key regional distribution partners and also discuss their innovative products first-hand with dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals from across the region.

The Australian Pavilion at IDEM Singapore is an initiative of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA), the peak business organisation representing dental product manufacturers and suppliers.  The pavilion included a hospitality lounge that provided a forum for the conversations that drive the growth of Australian business and dental product exports.  Businesses participating in the pavilion included:
