Thailand never stops enhancing its profile in hosting medical congress of a global scale. FDI 2015 Annual World Dental Congress (FDI 2015 Bangkok) is one recent proof. With the exhibition showcasing the latest development of dental care and treatment occupying a total space of 10,000 sqm, it is recorded as one of the largest exhibitions ever in the history of international dental congress. With convenient access from all over the globe, FDI 2015 Bangkok attracted more than 14,000 participants over the four-day event which was hosted at International Trade & Exhibition Center (BITEC) in Bangkok. These comprised delegates from 130 countries, dental trade exhibitors; over 220 companies from 14 countries and exhibition visitors.
Thai dental industry also played a key role in making FDI 2015 Bangkok a platform where dental care can be uplifted to a higher level of excellence when new dental chair for the elderly and disabled patients was showcased during the exhibition by Thai manufacturer. They designed the chair to address the limited mobility of the patients, which attracted a lot of international visitors who placed orders or applied to be the distributor in their home countries. This emphasizes the capability of Thai dental industry to make a contribution to the development of dental care and treatment internationally.
Dr. Adirek S. Wongsa, Chairman of the Organizing Committee of FDI 2015 Bangkok, which was supported by Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), stated that this congress is the world’s foremost international dental congress as FDI or The Federation Dentaire Internationale has been established since 1900 and represents more than 1 million dentists worldwide with membership comprising some 200 national dental associations.
FDI expressed their gratification towards the overall outcome of the congress while exhibitors also showed utmost satisfaction towards a large number of visitors as well as the local organizing committee from Thai Dental Association in managing the venue and congress, reception and facilities, particularly the security provided by the Thai government.
In all, a dedicated team of the Thai Local Organizing Committee from Dental Association of Thailand under the Royal Patronage, strong support from Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau and all alliances, a value for money for delegates, variety of accommodations in Bangkok that can cater to all budgets, world-renowned Thai cuisine, convenient transportation equipped with mass transit system, large meeting facility with world-class services and the hospitality of Thai people are important elements playing a vital role in creating success for the FDI 2015 Bangkok.
