The FDI World Dental Congress (FDI WDC) provides a scientific programme, a trade exhibition and an international forum for the review and discussion of the advancement of oral health, oral health care and all other subjects which will advance the objectives of FDI. It provides an opportunity for the strengthening of relations between the dental organizations, peoples and countries of the world. The 2018 Congress will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 5–8 September.
The structure of the World Dental Congress comprehends the following:
Scientific Programme: FDI and its Education Committee collaborate with the Local Organizing Committee to design a diverse scientific programme with international speakers.
General Assembly: The FDI WDC is the time of year when the General Assembly meets. Over 300 FDI delegates get together during five days to debate and take decisions that will influence the future of dentistry.
World Oral Forum: During the WOHF, FDI organizes a number of sessions with speakers from various backgrounds to debate on global topics related to the future of oral health.
FDI World Dental Exhibition:FDI is proud of its long-term partnership with exhibitors who have bookmarked the FDI WDC in their agenda as one of their “must-attend” exhibitions. Each year, the Exhibition is the host of National Pavilions where smaller companies who would traditionally not exhibit at such events, use the opportunity to explore, with limited risks, a new market.
Social Programme: The FDI WDC provides an unforgettable social programme including the Open Ceremony, the Conference Dinner and, last but not least, the very expected city night. Overall the Congress is a fantastic window of opportunity for the promotion of the hosting region.
