Dental Tribune U.S. Edition | January 2014 A9MEEtiNgS Greater New York Dental Meeting hits big numbers The recently concluded 89th Greater New York Dental Meeting registered 54,629 attendees, including 19,724 den- tists from all 50 states and 131 countries. In addition there were 4,078 hygienists and 5,323 dental assistants. The meeting’s exhibit hall featured more than 800 ex- hibitors in more than 1,600 booths. ColLABoration, the event’s new dental laboratory meeting, which was present- ed in partnership with Aegis Publishing, also posted strong numbers — described by meeting organizers as exceeding their expectations. There were more than 1,183 technicians and technician students, 50 exhibitor booths and two classrooms for seminars and workshops. For the 2014 GNYDM, organizers are adding another new element to the event — the inaugural World Implant Expo, which will be held simultaneously with the Greater New York Dental Meeting, which is set to run from Nov. 28 through Dec. 3. The 2014 GNYDM exhibit hall dates will be Nov. 30 through Dec. 3. Never a preregistration fee Again for 2014, the GNYDM, which is sponsored by the New York County Den- tal Society and Second District Dental Societies, will remain free of any regis- tration fee. In other attendance numbers compiled from the 2013 meeting, there were: 1,956 dental students, 1,066 dental assistant students, 864 dental hygiene students, 984 dental technicians, 199 dental tech- nician students, 8,164 exhibitors, 194 non-exhibiting dental trade, 30 from the U.S. Dept. of Commerce, 4,294 adminis- trative staff, 36 press and 7,717 guests. With three major international air- ports — Newark Liberty (EWR), Kennedy (JFK) and La Guardia (LGA) — and with discounted hotel rates, it’s no surprise so many professionals take advantage of the opportunity to keep pace with the profession and enjoy all that New York City offers during the holiday season.
