Sorry to inform you ...

Dear visitors of our website!

Due to two effects: on the one hand due to the economic situation – high inflation, rising interest rates, imminent recession – the board of the ODV, Austrian Dental Association, decided with a heavy heart in the interests of its members but also the traditional exhibitors to suspend the WID 2023. On the other hand, the association is already working meticulously on several projects aimed at renewing the WID. In such a short period of time – i.e. until May 2023 – such changes cannot be carried out successfully. The ODV is also aware of its responsibility towards its members in commercial matters. After two and a half years of the Covid-19 pandemic and the current economic situation, triggered by production bottlenecks and energy shortages, we would like to support our members with cost-cutting measures, even in times of an imminent economic downturn.

Of course, we also have doubts about balancing the WID 2023 financially successful and we also be aware of our responsibility to our members for our activities. Furthermore, as we have already been told by the markets that we have to expect some well-known exhibitors staying away from WID 2023. This would greatly reduce the attractiveness of the WID for our visitors which would also have an impact on future events.

However, we are already planning the WID 2024 which is scheduled for 3-4 May 2024 and will surprise with some structural innovations. On behalf of the board of the ODV I kindly ask you for your understanding of our decision and remain

with warm dental greetings
