“Vision 21 is an opportunity for those interested in the latest developments relative to digital impression systems to hear directly from the key players on trends on both the laboratory and clinical side with this important and emerging technology. It brings attendees a comprehensive look at the trends impacting dentists and will provide a clear insight on how to plan the dental lab business operations to be on the right side of the trend line. Attendees will hear from tried and true subject matter experts from within the dental laboratory industry as well as respected futurists. Vision 21 is scheduled to conclude on a high note with tools to enable dental lab owners and managers to go back and motivate their workforce to not only cope with change, but harness it. The closing session will focus on the next big ‘game changer’ for dentistry being digital printing. Hear from one of the key companies influencing the market on the unlimited applications that can be achieved in the dental laboratory arena,” NADL.

The event is held at Ceasars Palace in the exhibit halls. Attendees and sponsors from all over North America come to connect, learn and get inspired for 2014. It is a great opportunity for dental laboratories and dental lab suppliers to work together to start the year with a positive, energetic collaboration. Many of the presentations go towards CE credits (Continuing Education) that go to maintaining certified dental technician status. The event draws key players in the industry and will also see the reception of the new NADL president, Gary Iocco.

Evident and Gary Iocco have worked together with the NADL to provide a quick and easy solution to the State legislative requirement to provide manufacturing origin and materials disclosure on the dental lab invoice.

Gary Iocco, President Elect of the NADL says, “The Evident software program has many benefits for our laboratory, some of which are purely cost savings by not having to purchase a $4000 server, the cloud feature is wonderful, access from anywhere. The lab-end lets us have any report we can think of, helps us comply with the FDA laws on material content and lot number tracking. As of Jan 1, 2013 any lab doing business with doctors in Minnesota must supply country of origin and material content with every case. Evident makes our life easier, and working with these folks is great.”

Evident dental laboratory management software has been helping dental labs around the world organize their billing, production processes and customer management for the last 5 years. Recommended as the dental lab software provider with the best customer support in the industry and the fastest growing customer base, Evident has become a well-known name in the dental lab industry.

This weekend Evident employees will be exhibiting at the DentAtlantech trade show in Nova Scotia, Canada. The first trade show in a series of 7 that zig zag their way from the North East of North America to Anaheim California in the South West. A long standing core value of the Evident company has been to attend industry trade shows and keep in touch with the sentiment of the dental lab industry market. Through consistent attendance Evident has been able to establish relationships with customers and industry regulatory advisors to increase the Evident customer base but to also improve the Evident system from the best informed and most experienced people in the industry.

Dental laboratory industry trade shows are a great place to meet up with friends and colleagues that share the same passion and interests. Exhibitors at trade shows are a buzz with the opportunity to show their products and to talk with clients that are enthused to see what’s new and how they can improve their lab. As relationships have grown, the trade show floor has become a meeting place for old friends to reminisce about old adventures and there’s always plenty of jokes involved.

The scheduled demo agenda for this trade show season is:

DentAtlanTech 7th – 9th September

DTACB 28th – 29th September

Technorama 2011 Review

On the 8th and 9th of April 2011 the Evident dental lab software team attended the 37th DIAC Technorama 2011 trade show.

Technorama is revered as the largest dental lab trade show in Canada and was held at the Hilton Suites in Markham, Ontario.

Technorama 2011 attracted dentists, denturists, dental technicians, dental hygienists, dental lab managers and owners and dental industry students. Attendees took advantage of the free entry, seminars and meetings and of course, all the exhibits offering the latest and greatest products and services in the dental lab industry.

As always I thought it important to review the trade show so that future hopeful attendees can get an idea of what to expect:

Attendees: Wow! If you are a student in the field of dental lab technicians, dental hygienists and denturists, this is a great trade show. I haven’t seen so many students at a trade show before and suspect that there were association incentives and involvement. The seminars and meetings brought many professionals in the industry from the associations including DIAC and the ADTO.

Venue: The new venue for Technorama is a smaller space, but superior in style and comfort. The Hilton Suites Conference Room is a luxury space. Hilton staff were prompt and polite. Catering and bar staff were provided for the social events and were very courteous and helpful. The venue was easy to navigate to. The Evident team didn’t stay at the hotel so I cannot comment on the rooms.

Organizers: The organizers of Technorama 2011 provided great information for the event, but the material could have been provided earlier and with better presentation. The event was posted in March (only 1 month prior) and needed some clearer formatting, especially for the actual dates and times of the event. Exhibitors were provided with different start and finish times for floor time. Service suppliers for furniture and internet access were more than competent and happy to help with any request for set up and support.

Overall: Technorama 2011 was a great success! All the attendees, exhibitors and presenters were happy with the new venue and the turn out. It was great to see so many happy customers and meet so many new ones. Thank you for all the people that attended and brought a genuine interest in what we do and how we can take the dental lab to the next generation of dental lab management systems.

Evident will be attending the next Technorama Trade Show and posting the details of the event on Dental Lab Trade Shows when the 2012 dental lab trade show calenders have been published.

LMT Lab Day Chicago Review

The Monday after the LMT Lab Day Chicago 2011 trade show and the energy is still buzzing through the group. But how did the show actually fair up? Is there room where LMT or the hotel could improve?

Chicago from the Hotel
To accurately assess this event I have divided them into sections of asssessment:

Trade show floor: For the visitors to the trade show there was a completely different feel to the Mid-Winter Day 2011. New full length banners and branded show bags greeted the visitors at the entrances setting the scene for what was in store. The busy trade room bustled with a steady constant flow of dental lab owners, technicians, suppliers and consultants. When exhibitors attracted a large amount of people the isles did get congested but never to a point where a person couldn’t navigate to any part of the trade show floor. It was exceptionally cold where we were set up and our exhibitors did have difficulties with the chilly conditions. Garage doors provided access for movers but the external doors beyond were also open so it was the equivalent of standing out on the street.

Setup and provision of services: The setup was given ample time and all the ability and services of the hotel staff were made available to us. The delivery of services like an internet connection and power were slow and rushed. Allocation of the movers and set up could have started earlier but everyone was helpful and efficient. An LMT setup pack was ready and waiting for us when we got in to set up and that was really useful to get our ID’s and relevant info.

Pack up: Was crazy! 5 o clock hit and movers stormed the room to lay plastic and start removing all the structures and furniture from the trade room floor. I would give a 15 – 30 minute window for the exhibitors to get out of the way before calling in the movers. At the end of such a long day it was a annoying to be rushed to pack up and get out. Again all the movers were efficient and helpful.

The hotel: No issues with the rooms or hotel staff. There were great social events in the foyer and lobby bar. Peter Pizzi from Pizzi Dental Lab held a social event that, in my opinion was a great success. Every night there seemed to be something going on and I really enjoyed the whole feel of the hotel.

Price: I think the prices over all were high, the rooms, the booth but particularly the price for the internet access. For one tech to come over plug a cable into the wall and then turn the port on, $1000.00 (and no that isn’t a typing mistake) is in excess of a year of internet access for only a day and a half of use. Granted the access is well… not that difficult and the man hours are well… minimal and cost to set up the network is…. 0! I think this is the largest deterring factor for our company. I think this cost is generated by the hotel and not a fault of the organizers. A sandwich was the provided lunch, we were only provided one ticket for 4 people and sandwiches that were for sale were $40.00 each. Again, this is maybe the result of a monopoly environment, but the prices are geared towards not doing the work and making the sale rather than trying to provide a complimentary product to increase revenue. I think the excessive cost of food to the exhibitors is reducing the number of sales and actually costing who ever is meant to be benefiting from the profit.

Overall: The overall trade show was a great success, we delivered our presentation in person to more business than ever! Everyone at the trade show was enthusiastic and polite and our team fed off that enthusiasm to deliver great presentations. We have experienced exceptional interest over the last 6 months but nothing compared to the level of interest at this trade show. No want was left unattended and everything was available to us.

Again, a great event and we will definitely be attending next year! Here is a photo of the team in action demonstrating Evident.

Out sourcing trade show management

There are additional efficiencies and benefits to outsourcing Trade Show Management in addition to freeing marketing staff from the burden. In many cases, trade show design firms are more efficient in planning for shows, working with show officials, and arranging freight, travel and accommodations. The overall expense for trade show management can be reduced significantly simply because of this improved efficiency.
