“China Has Offers Matching All Budgets”

In an exclusive interview with Prof. Wang Xing, President of China Stomatological Association (CSA), he tells us why China Dental Show (CDS) 2015 is the only place that brings together latest technology offerings and key knowledge exchange programs, all under one roof.

1) CSA has been collaborating with the China Dental Show (CDS) since many years now. How has this collaboration been mutually beneficial?

This collaboration is much more than mutually beneficial. CSA has an in-depth understanding of the domestic stomatological industry with a vision to cultivate the entire Chinese market in terms of training, education and also keeping all stakeholders informed by sharing latest news updates and technology from across the world. We have collaborated with many organizations and we realized that Reed Sinopharm Exhibitions (RSE) has similar goals, thanks to their vast experience of over 30 years in the health sector. Moreover, RSE is well-known among the trade community around the world because of its parent company Reed Exhibitions and its publications.

2) What are your expectations from CDS 2015 in terms of product portfolio and quality of technology?

The expectations are high from the industry who are now used to the latest technology, innovative products and high-profile conferences at the China Dental Show. As an industry leader today, CDS 2015 is playing an important role by offering a comprehensive program for local dentists to upgrade their knowledge on the latest products, policies and dental technology. Today, our members who are primarily dentists are extremely busy attending to ever-evolving patient needs. With a ratio of 1 dentist for every 8,000 patients, there is no way a dentist can make adequate time for skill building and professional networking. Hence, CDS 2015 has come to become an Annual Meeting where over 20,000 members can socialize within 4 days.

3) What is the idea behind this year’s theme Digital Dentistry? What can visitors expect on this topic from the high-profile seminars and conferences organized by CSA?

Digital technology has made a huge presence in today’s lifestyle. Hence, it is no surprise that Digital Dentistry is the logical evolution of the stomatological industry also. The challenge before us is to keep pace with these rapid changes in dental technology. Innovations are emerging from China and overseas almost every month, owing to the latest technology registration policies. We are delighted to see that our selected theme has been received very well, evinced by the quick registrations for more than 400 technical sessions at CDS 2015.

We always choose out themes carefully, forecasting industry trends over a 3-year period. This ensures that all our members are well-informed and educated on a given subject before proceeding to the next one. From knowledge-sharing lectures to practical training workshops, our educative programs at CDS 2015 are comprehensive and in-depth. With more than 3 months to go, we have already planned the educative conferences with high profile speakers from over 20 countries.

4) What makes CDS different from other dental trade shows in the world? How does it reflect on the Chinese dental industry?

CDS is unique for these three reasons:

1) It reflects our association’s principle that education and information exchange comes before business. China is a huge market with varying demands, needs and budgets. Hence, our members need to be well updated and trained before they select the right products. Thus, every three years we select a new theme developed by the CSA Committee Board.

2) CDS 2015 plays host to the CSA Annual Meeting which is a must-attend event for all our members. It is the only opportunity for members from across China to meet socially and professionally.

3) The new venue at National Exhibition & Convention Center in Shanghai in more user-friendly with buyers and exhibitors meeting on the same level without spending much time travelling across the fairgrounds. Hence, CDS 2015 is sure to be an invigorating experience for all visitors and participants.

5) Why do you think China is the best place to source for dental technology?

China is definitely the right place to source for all business needs as we have offers for all budgets. Nowadays, we are receiving feedback from international buyers that Chinese products have improved in terms of quality and technology. But we still maintain our competitive pricing advantage. I think China has tremendous potential as a business and investment destination for those foreign brands that have a larger entrepreneurial vision in Asia.
