Scottish Dental Show launches in Glasgow

A new show focused on the dental industry has claimed more than 1,200 visitors at its inaugural event at Hampden Park in Glasgow.
 
The Scottish Dental Show was held from 24 to 25 May and featured 100 exhibitors and 30 speakers. The event was opened by public health minister Michael Matheson and also featured a presentation from Edinburgh GDP and former GDC president Hew Mathewson. Overall, 12 hours of CPD-accredited content was available to attendees.
 
The trade exhibition was organised by publisher Connect Publications, which operates the Scottish Dental Magazine as well as a series of contract-based customer titles.
 
Magazine editor Bruce Oxley said it plans to return next year with its second edition and is now investigating larger venues in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. According to Connect Publications MD Alan Ramsay, most of the large-scale dental conferences and exhibitions have traditionally been in London or Birmingham, opening up a gap for the Scottish sector.

“It’s a natural extension of the magazine for us,” Oxley told EN. “This year was really about testing the waters and gauging what exhibitors and visitors wanted. We’re now looking at running the event annually and looking at venues for next year.
 
“We chose Hampden Park because we didn’t know how big the event was going to be this year, so we started with one hall and ended up across two. It was handy travel-wise and is a very Scottish venue, which was great as were trying to make the event stand out.”
 
The Scottish Dental Show was the first exhibition produced by Connect Publications.
 
CloserStill recently reported attendance at its annual Dentistry Show at The NEC has doubled over the last two years to 4,917 in 2012.
