2023 TECHNORAMA Lab & Technology Conference a Great Success
The annual Technorama Dental Lab & Technology Conference presented by the Dental Industry Association of Canada (DIAC) took place March 31 and April 1 at the Delta Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Center. Having returned to a live format only one year previously, this year’s event showed a marked increase in attendance over Technorama 2022. The 2023 show welcomed nearly 900 delegates over the two-day conference.
“It was fabulous to see Technorama really bouncing back this year,” said Henry Doyle, President of DIAC’s Board of Directors. “Our hard-working Technorama Committee and dedicated DIAC executive team put on another high quality show for our exhibitors and delegates,” said Doyle.
The show’s 41 exhibitors found this year’s delegates engaged in meaningful discussions about their products and services and sales were as good or better than they had expected. The 16 live sponsored seminars featured dental subject matter experts from across North America. Hands-on workshops sponsored by Align Technology and The Aurum Group were particularly popular educational offerings this year. The Friday night reception sponsored by The Aurum Group featured a live band sponsored by Ivoclar, in addition to the usual great food and refreshments delegates and exhibitors have come to expect.
Friday’s keynote address, ‘The Future of Denturism’ featured introductory remarks from Jaro Wojcicki Jr., DD, President of the Denturist Association of Canada and Denturist Association of Ontario. The keynote speaker, David Malesich of Echelon Research Group, presented highlights from recent independent research on trends in the field of Denturism in Canada conducted jointly by the two organizations.
DIAC Executive Director Rhonda Lawson was gratified by the overwhelmingly positive feedback from delegates and exhibitors alike. “We are very pleased that Technorama 2023 was so well attended, and the Association and its members are already looking forward to next year’s event,” said Lawson.
