Dental Tribune U.S. Edition

A5Dental Tribune U.S. Edition | March 2013 Ad CLINICALMEETINGS Registration open for 2013 Greater New York Dental Meeting Final attendance for the 88th annual Greater New York Dental Meeting came in at 53,481, of which 18,305 were dentists representing all 50 states and 130 coun- tries. The meeting is the largest dental meeting in the United States. The meeting opened in the Jacob K. Ja- vits Convention Center four weeks after Superstorm Sandy cut a path of destruc- tion across the U.S. Eastern Seaboard. The Javits Center experienced exten- sive flooding on its lower level, but an around-the-clock effort had it open in time for the meeting. The GNYDM was packed with its usual vast array of the latest in technologies, resources, prod- ucts — and an extensive agenda of edu- cational opportunities. Meeting organizers report that the re- action from attendees, exhibitors and sponsors was unanimous: Not only were the exhibit floor, clinicians and network- ing events well received, but sales oppor- tunities were described as being unprec- edented. Planning is under way for the 2013 meeting, Nov. 29 through Dec. 4 (scien- tific meeting) and Dec. 1 through Dec. 4 (exhibit hall). The GNYDM is sponsored by the New York County Dental Society and Second District Dental Society. The high-energy event, which never has a pre-registration fee, draws top dental professionals with an expansive exhibit hall and more than 300 educa- tional courses, including full-day and half-day seminars, essays, hands-on workshops and a live, 430-seat, high-tech patient demonstration area.
