Dear friends of WID,
2020 was a turning point for all of us in many ways. The lock down and the resulting decrease of sales figures were massive for many of you in spring 2020. The ODV, Austrian Dental Association, cancelled the WID 2020 before this restriction became known in order to save exhibitors planning and production costs. At the same time, all contracts were immediately reversed. But, what was really painful, after decades of annual dental trade shows, the joint appearance of dental traders and dental industry at the WID and the traditional social interaction could not take place.
We are all looking forward to the coming year 2021! We were able to change the usual WID period from the beginning of May to the end of June 2021 and so we will organize our trade fair in the period 25-26 June 2021. At this time, the vaccination coverage in Austria – but especially among our visitors and exhibitors – will be well over 50%. Talking with our visitor target groups show that there is already a high need for information and social contacts. This allows for a positive outlook for WID 2021 and we hope to be able to convince you exhibiting at WID 2021.
