CloserStill Media, organisers of the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show, have made the carefully considered decision to postpone the British Dental Conference and Dentistry Show (BDCDS) to May 2022.
The event will now take place on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May 2022 at the Birmingham NEC, hall 5.
Martin Woodrow, Chief Executive of the BDA commented: “As we are all aware, the COVID-19 situation in England is continually developing, and after careful consideration, the decision to reschedule feels appropriate given current circumstances and ongoing uncertainty. However, I have no doubt that the 2022 conference will be the biggest, best and most impressive event yet!”
In the meantime, CloserStill Media will be focusing on how they can support the profession as they continue to work through this, very challenging time for dentistry.
“Over the past few months, we have been diligently assessing the landscape of the return of in-person events for the dentistry community,” said Alex Harden, Event Director BDCDS at CloserStill Media. “This decision has been made due to the lack of clarity around future government restrictions on large scale gatherings due to COVID-19 and the fact that the safety of our communities is of upmost importance to us. Our team is more devoted than ever to creating engaging, practical resources for continuing education and industry growth in a digital world. Thank you for your continued support during these difficult times and we trust you and your families are safe and well.”
The BDCDS is the UK’s leading two-day exhibition and conference for dental professionals, providing clinical, leadership and practical training via an extensive educational programme and hands-on workshops. It is the UK’s largest event of its kind, attracting over 9000 unique delegates and over 400 exhibitors.
