Following guidance from Singapore’s Ministry of Health and to address the concerns of all stakeholders about holding the International Dental Exhibition and Meeting (IDEM) in April 2020, Koelnmesse and the Singapore Dental Association will postpone the event to June 19 through June 21, 2020.

“The health of all IDEM participants is of great importance to us, and we are putting their well-being first by delaying the event,” said Mathias Kuepper, managing director of Koelnmesse.

“We have much gratitude for the understanding and ongoing commitment from our partners, sponsors, exhibitors, and conference speakers, not to mention the participants and attendees that have enabled us to postpone IDEM,” Kuepper said.

“In light of the current situation, it is important for us to make decisions in the best interests of our attendees, and we will continue to listen to and work closely with our partners to create a successful event,” said Dr. Lim Lii, president of the Singapore Dental Association.

‘We are optimistic that the current COVID-19 virus outbreak will be temporary, and we believe that it is in the interests of the dental industry to resume businesses as quickly as possible after the present crisis has been addressed,” said Lii.

“The health and safety of locals, visitors, and industry partners remains a priority, and we are working closely with Koelnmesse Pte Ltd to support the continued success of IDEM 2020,” said Andrew Phua, director, exhibitions and conferences, Singapore Tourism Board.
