Infographic for your trade fair visit of IDS 2019 in Cologne

It’s time again: in March 2019 the International Dental Show (IDS) will be taking place in the trade fair city Cologne, with approximately 2,305 exhibitors from 59 countries. This is in addition to the more than 155,000 trade visitors who will also be in attendance.

Every two years at the IDS, the dental sector presents innovation in the fields of dental medicine and technology. Consequently, attending the IDS is an absolute must for dentists and dental professionals.

The world’s leading dental professional trade fair takes place over five days in the cathedral city Cologne, from Tuesday 12th March to Saturday 16th March 2019. Over the course of the conference you will also have time to discover Cologne and to get a feel for this metropolis on the banks of the Rhine.

The vibrant city has something to offer for all age groups. Visitors can marvel at the many touristic highlights of the city, including the old town with its many quaint breweries, the museums, the banks of the Rhine, and of course the traditional hospitality of the city’s residents. In the city, traditions such as the Cologne Carnival are still actively celebrated and cherished. The local dialect “Kölsch” gives its name to a popular local beer… perhaps the only language that you can drink!

Cologne Cathedral, the city’s most famous landmark, is loved by both locals and tourists. The UNESCO world heritage site took 632 years to build Interesting fact – the spires of the cathedral are different heights. That’s the way it is, perfect, imperfect, and the city of contrasts. Viva Colonia! Long live Cologne!

Our infographic provides you with some facts about the 38th International Dental Show (IDS), as well as some tips such as why Cologne has been called „dat hätz vun d’r Welt“, what means “the city ‘at the heart of the world!”
