Sponsorship and exhibition opportunities

To book your exhibition stand, contact Susan Graves, Exhibition Sales and Sponsorship Executive on susan.graves@bda.org or call 020 7563 4175

Why exhibit or sponsor at a BDA event?

Reach your desired audience over a focused seminar, training course or conference, providing your organisation the opportunity to meet face to face with dentists and the dental team

The BDA is the association membership body available for all dentists in the UK, consequently our events are key dates to meet and engage with dentists

By exhibiting at BDA events and activities you are helping support dentistry, as the BDA’s sole purpose of running events is to support the profession

Dentists have the time at BDA events to research, source and engage with organisations, therefore our events are a valuable occasion for the industry and dental profession to engage.
