KRAKDENT® – the Central European Capital of Dental Trade Fairs!
Undoubtedly, this is the largest and the most important meeting of the dental industry in Central and Eastern Europe. The importance of KRAKDENT® for the region’s dentists is evidenced by the impressive attendance at the last edition, which attracted more than 14,000 participants, 80% of whom showed up more than once in order to learn about the latest trends, ensure cutting-edge equipment for their surgeries, and improve their qualifications through participation in accompanying congresses, conferences, and seminars. The record number of nearly 336 companies that flocked to KRAKDENT® in 2015 from the farthest corners of the world to forge successful business relations testifies to the immense potential of this market.
The International Dental Trade Fair KRAKDENT® takes place at the International Exhibition and Convention Centre EXPO Krakow. Opened in the spring of 2014, the centre is one of the most modern venues of this kind in Poland. The building ensures the highest comfort for business meetings and can accommodate the most demanding projects, such as the audiovisual conference this year with a foreign expert located 6,500km away in… Canada.
In the heart of Europe
The great advantage of KRAKDENT® is its venue in Krakow, at the , at the very heart of Europe. The capital of Malopolska Province is very well connected; with two international airports within a 100km radius, EXPO is easily accessed via the A4 motorway. Thousands of hotel beds, a charming Old Market Square with romantic restaurants and exquisite food mean Krakow stands out as one of the most popular towns not only for tourists (ranked first by the popular Zoover portal in 2014), but also for business visitors. Last year, events organized by Targi w Krakowie (the owner and operator of EXPO) alone attracted more than 2,500 companies, 25% of which have their headquarters abroad.
The previous edition of KRAKDENT® attracted a record 336 companies that came from all over Poland and from countries such as Belgium, China, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Japan, South Korea, Germany, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Italy and the US.

The program is targeted at dentists, dental technicians, hygienists and dental assistants. This part of the Fair includes several dozen meetings with Polish and international experts, conferences, symposia, medical courses and workshops. In addition, each year there is the 15th DENTAL SPAGHETTI International Dental Congress
