SHOW REVIEW news Publishers’ Meeting at IDS DTI is becoming a digital dental service platform (cid:132) Ahead of the 37th International Dental Show, Dental Tribune Interna- tional (DTI) held its 13th Annual Pub- lishers’ Meeting. This year, the meet- ing, which was attended by more than 75 licence partners from all over the world, including India, Iran, Is- rael, Italy and the Netherlands, dis- cussed a number of new projects for the upcoming year and strategic ap- proaches for future development. At the meeting, DTI CEO Torsten Oemus addressed new trends in the global dental industry, as well as the relevance of online education, e-com- merce for dentistry and event mar- keting. In response to these needs, DTI is continuously updating and ex- panding its portfolio, gradually devel- oping into a digital dental service platform, he said. DTI Press Event On the second day of the Publish- ers’ Meeting, DTI hosted a press event at the Hilton hotel in Cologne, with 30-minute slots, including modera- tion and a Q & A session. Orthodontic company Six Month Smiles had the unique opportunity to present its products and obtain direct feedback from an international audience. The press event was very well attended and facilitated mutually beneficial conversations. New prevention magazine DTI is continuing to expand its print portfolio and introduced its lat- est addition during the meeting: pre- vention. The new international maga- zine will feature topics concerning oral health and be released during the Annual World Dental Congress of the FDI World Dental Federation in Madrid in Spain this year. New website In response to the growing need for digital dentistry technologies and the increasing importance of digital media, DTI is relaunching its website this year as part of its continuing portfolio expansion. For improved us- ability, the navigation and menu of the local websites will be in local lan- guages. The fresh look will include a modernised, interactive layout, with a focus on company profiles. Further- more, the website will use several new advertising and content formats. A revised calendar with upcoming webinars and global events, as well as a map, will aid readers. In addition, an updated version of e-papers will be available for iPads. DDS.WORLD As a next step to further integrat- ing e-commerce into its portfolio, DTI has continued to develop DDS.WORLD, a new digital market- place. “A business is valued by the in- teraction with its clients and we need to continuously find new ways to en- gage with them. We need to adapt our business to the changing context,” ex- plained Oemus. DDS.WORLD, avail- able at, is a full-ser- vice digital marketplace for products, news, e-learning and practice man- agement. It is targeted at all partici- pants in the dental industry. It offers product listing and an associated search facility, a practice manage- ment software program, direct cus- tomer communication tools and much more. The comprehensive web- site has the potential to be a gam- er-changer in the provision of digital dental services to the industry. “The digital world is becoming increas- ingly important in this context,” em- phasised Oemus.
