Next March marks 100 years of IDS

IDS, the leading global trade fair of the dental industry is celebrating a double anniversary next year: Not only will the 40th edition of the International Dental Show be staged from 14 to 18 March 2023 in Cologne, Germany, IDS is also looking forward to its 100th birthday.


The success story of the dental world is inseparably linked with IDS, because the leading trade fair is based on a system of values that makes it unique.

100 years of IDS stands for the depiction of the industry in its entirety, for innovations and market trends, for a consistent and open comparison of performance in the sense of the Olympic principle and last, but not least, for a leadership claim as the largest international industry platform that has been repeatedly confirmed for decades.

When the online applications kicked off in February, the centenary edition of the world's largest trade fair for dentistry and dental technology received numerous inquiries for exhibition space from myriad companies. The first planning phase is now underway.

The success story and the anniversary of IDS are also an outstanding result for Cologne-based organiser Koelnmesse, because the International Dental Show has now been staged at the trade fair location in Cologne for over 30 years. At the time, the Association of German Dental Manufacturers (VDDI), decided to provide IDS with a permanent home in Cologne from 1992 onwards and to entrust Koelnmesse with organising the trade fair. Before this, the IDS was staged in different locations by different organisers.

Cologne (Köln) is the largest city on the Rhine River and the fourth most populous city in Germany. The city's medieval Catholic Cathedral (Kölner Dom), is a globally recognised landmark.
