Photo/Provided by JDIQ Diverse group of speakers scheduled at JDIQ Journées dentaires internationales du Québec includes Drs. Dan Nathanson, Gerard Kugel, David Clark and Gérard Chiche Courses are filling fast for the Journées dentaires internationales du Québec, May 24–28, at the Palais des congrès de Montréal. At press time numerous courses were already sold out, meeting organizers reported. The annual meeting of the Ordre des dentistes du Québec continues to be Canada’s largest dental meeting and ex- pects to host more than 12,000 delegates from around the world. With a scientific program with more than 100 lectures and workshops in English and French, JDIQ maintains its status as the world’s most highly attended bilingual (English/ French) convention. More than 225 exhibitors will span 500 booths in the exhibit hall, Monday and Tuesday, May 27 and 28. The exhibit hall will feature a continental breakfast from 8–8:30 a.m. on both days for the early ris- ers — and a wine-and-cheese reception closing out both days. Featured speakers for this 43rd edition of the event include Drs. Dan Nathan- son, Gerard Kugel, David Clark, Gérard Chiche, Mark Piper, George Freedman, Paresh Shah and Rhonda Savage, to name a few. New things to watch for at next JDIQ (like free Wi-Fi) In addition to lining up some of the in- dustry's top presenters, organizers of the 2013 JDIQ are incorporating a number of new features in the event. Among them: • The JDIQ will continue its “green” practice of adding QR codes to the post- ers at the entrance to each room. You can use these codes to download full details on the lectures and all available course notes. New this year, to make it easier for you to download this information on your cellphones or tablets: free Wi-Fi access will be available at the Palais des congrès. All you have to do is download a code-reading app before you come. You can get this kind of free app from your service provider. • The exhibitor’s area will be larger than ever, bringing together in one place the latest advances for modern dental practices. You can earn dental continu- ing education units by visiting the ex- hibit hall, which will be open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Tuesday of the five-day event. • Also in 2013, for the first time, a free continental breakfast will be available to participants in the exhibit hall between 8 and 8:30 a.m. Event organizers are expecting a strong turnout, likely surpassing 2012 attendance, which totaled 12,206 and breaks down as follows: 3,566 dentists; 2,095 dental hygienists; 31 dental auxil- iaries; 1,026 dental assistants; 61 dental technicians; 837 administrative staff; 82 spouses; 182 guests and visitors; 2,430 students; 617 dentistry; 780 dental as- sistance; 925 dental hygiene; 108 dental technology; and 1,896 exhibitors.
