ADX16 Sydney Receives National Events Accolade

ADX16 Sydney Receives National Events Accolade

30th Nov 16

Summary —

The status of the ADX Sydney dental exhibition as the nation's premier dental event was cemented with recognition in this year's events sector awards presented by the Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA).

Key Issues For Consideration —

The Exhibition and Event Association of Australasia (EEAA) is the peak association for the exhibition and event industry in Australia and New Zealand and each year presents awards to showcase both nations' best trade shows.  The success of the ADX16 Sydney dental exhibition as a sales platform for dental product suppliers was recognised when it received a Highly Commended award in the category for industry association events presented at the new International Convention Centre Sydney on 30 November 2016.

Of particular significance was that ADX16 Sydney was a finalist in the category for best trade show over ten thousand square meters, placing it in the top-tier of all trade shows in Australia and New Zealand.  No other event in Australia's dental community has ever received such recognition.

The judges recognised the commitment of the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) to ensue that ADX Sydney was available to dental product suppliers as a platform to showcase the innovative diagnostic and treatment pathways that the dental industry offers dental and oral health professionals.

EEAA's recognition of the ADX Sydney dental exhibition is an important milestone in the transformation that will take place in ADIA's event management capacity as detailed in the 2016-20 ADIA Strategic Plan.  This will cement the status of ADX Sydney as the nation’s premier dental event through the introduction of exciting initiatives that increase visitor attendance.  Importantly, consistent with the ADIA External Stakeholder Engagement Strategy, ADIA will support organisations representing dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals wishing to convene components of their continuing professional development program at ADX Sydney.

Member Engagement —
