Lots to Smile About
The International Dental Expo and Symposium 2020 was the first trade exhibition to be staged in Hong Kong in 2021 since the fourth Covid-19 wave hit in late November. The three-day event takes place annually at HKCEC, and this edition had been postponed from August 2020. Thus it was with relief on behalf of the organiser and participants that it went ahead safely and successfully in January.
The three-day symposium provided an opportunity for thousands of dental professionals to exchange industry intelligence and insights face-to-face. It featured 23 parallel sessions and four workshops, incorporating live video conferencing, attended by industry professionals from Hong Kong, China, UK, USA, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and Lebanon. Participants were able to share the latest clinical insights and international intelligence.
The Hong Kong Dental Association, organiser of the event, put safety as the top priority. It implemented a number of anti-epidemic measures, including provision of safety equipment and sanitisers, regular disinfection and cleaning, temperature checks, and social distancing, which dovetailed with HML’s own stringent precautionary measures.
