The Convention Centre Dublin confirms its first conference for 2022

DUBLIN – 16 March 2017 – The Convention Centre Dublin (The CCD) has announced it has been chosen to host the International Symposium on Dental Hygiene in August 2022 with 1,200 participants expected to attend.

The bid was secured by the Irish Dental Hygienists’ Association (IDHA) and Keynote PCO during this year’s conference in Basel, Switzerland in June. It was the second attempt to bring the conference to Dublin, having lost out to Korea for the 2019 Symposium, and the IDHA members beat off stiff competition from Australia and Italy.

Louise Fleming, IDHA president commented, “As a small association we have highlighted what a big impact a small group of like-minded professionals can achieve. We have worked hard over the last six years to bring this prestigious conference to Ireland, which will give the IDHA international exposure, and an opportunity to attract a great host of national and international speakers to Dublin. This bid means that we are recognised globally and it puts Ireland firmly on the map as a conference destination.”

“We are delighted to have confirmed our first conference for 2022”, commented Adrienne Clarke, Head of Conference Sales at The CCD. She added, “We are thrilled to have secured this prestigious meeting for Ireland and we would like to thank our industry partners, Keynote PCO and Dublin Convention Bureau (DCB) for their tremendous support in bringing this conference to The CCD.”

The International Symposium on Dental Hygiene is held every three years and offers an opportunity for the understanding and discussion of issues pertaining to dental hygiene. Delegates include dental and oral hygienists, medical and dental practitioners and allied healthcare practitioners.
