CloserStill Media returns to exhibitions with its first UK event.

CloserStill Media returns to exhibitions with its first UK event.
After a prolonged halt in all live events for 18 months, CloserStill Media returns with the enormous success of the Dentistry Show London.

London, 22 September 2021: CloserStill Media are filled with confidence from the outstanding results of the Dentistry Show London, on the 17th -18th September, held at Olympia. The event showed a true testament to the outstanding team efforts for CloserStill’s UK return to large-scale events since the pandemic.

The Dentistry Show London welcomed the dental community in their thousands and offered delegates insightful conference sessions, industry-leading exhibitors, and unrivalled networking opportunities.

Delegate Dr Juliane Scandian, Principal of Sorriso Design Dental Clinic commented “After a long pandemic, I was looking forward to meeting colleagues and discovering new products. The Dentistry Show London was well-organised, not only with all the safety measures but also to welcome the dental team to the ‘new norm’. I’m enjoying seeing everyone’s happy faces!” 

The capital’s premier dental event showcased the latest innovations in Dentistry from world-leading exhibiting companies such as A-Tec Dental UK, Align Technology, Belmont, ClearCorrect, Colgate, DD, Dentex, GSK, Strauman Group, and Sweden & Martina.

“It was nice to be back face-to-face again, seeing some colleagues in the industry and our customers. The highlights have been talking to potential new customers and demonstrating the equipment to people face-to-face. Many delegates were saying the lectures were good and how nice it was to be back at a live exhibition. Everyone seemed very upbeat that came to the stand and engaged.” Sarah Gardiner, Events & Educational Courses Manager, Straumann Group. 

Delegates benefited from a cutting-edge education from internationally renowned organisations such as Coach Barrow, Dental Elite, NHS England, NBS Training, Dental Elite, International Digital Dental Academy, and Mediholdings.

“The show is busier than I thought it might be post-Covid – which is great! It’s excellent that live shows are back – they are important for professionals’ mental wellbeing. You need somewhere to belong, to share issues and ideas with others. Seeing people face-to-face is massive, and so much better than a webinar. Networking is also a big part of it too. I am here to meet friends, find good offers on products for my practice, and get some much needed CPD in.” Dr Amit Rai, Compliance Hub speaker, Dento-legal Advisor.

CloserStill’s first UK event has proved the importance of the return of trade shows, and the Dentistry Show London has set high standards for the company’s remaining 2021 shows. CloserStill’s upcoming multi-award-winning events include Acute & General Medicine, the Clinical Pharmacy Congress, Best Practice Show, Diabetes Professional Care, Future Surgery, London Vet Show, the OT Show, and the Pharmacy Show.

“We knew that the return to live events in the UK would be an exciting experience, but the 2021 edition of Dentistry Show London’s atmosphere surpassed our expectations. The past 18 months have proved an intense challenge for us all. As a collective, seeing our family of colleagues experience the return of large-scale trade events has been awe-inspiring and a celebration for our industry. This is just the beginning!” Alexia Maycock, CMO, CloserStill Media. 

CloserStill Media runs more than 70 events in the UK and international markets in the learning, healthcare, technology, and veterinary sectors. The company’s portfolio includes some of the fastest growing, and often award-winning, events including the Dentistry Shows, London Vet Show, Cloud Expo Europe, Data Centre World, The Pharmacy Show, Learning Technologies, DevLearn, and Zufunft Personnel.

“The Dentistry Show London was a hugely important step for the CloserStill Media Group and it’s with real excitement and pride that we can now welcome the return of live events in the UK. This week is just the start, CloserStill has a huge programme of in-person events planned from now through the remainder of the year, including our return to events in the USA, France, and Germany” Gareth Bowhill, CEO, CloserStill Media 

CloserStill Media will be closely monitoring the coronavirus situation, in collaboration with the local governments, to ensure the safety and wellbeing of their exhibitors, speakers, partners, attendees and staff.
