DTS remains a DLA flagship event

DTS remains a DLA flagship event

The Dental Technology Showcase (DTS) 2022 remains the flagship event of the Dental Laboratories Association (DLA), the professional body for lab owners in the UK. The continuing collaboration with CloserStill Media ensures a high-quality, diverse and particularly relevant programme for dental technicians, who can have total confidence in the calibre of any sessions or workshops they attend.

The involvement of the DLA helps to complete the programme and ensure all the hot topics are covered. With more than 1,000 members, the DLA understands exactly what professionals across the lab community are facing right now and are therefore well-placed to deliver the guidance and support needed. Given the additional difficulties of the past couple of years, as well as the gradual return to any kind of normality for many businesses in the sector, there has never been a more important time to re-engage with the profession and look for new innovations.   

It also creates a fantastic platform for networking – with plenty of like-minded professionals coming together to share experiences, learn from each other and enjoy some long-awaited face-to-face time with friends.

President of the DLA, Steve Campbell, comments:

“It is my belief that it is of the utmost importance that as UK dental labs you keep up to date with the latest news, products and services on offer in the profession.

“One of the easiest ways of doing this annually is, of course, DTS. Hosting a range of CPD, all of the latest equipment and materials, and expert advice all available in one place, DTS is a massive saver both in terms of time and money. Not only this, but it means that when providing care and information to clients, you can be confident that your opinions and advice is based on the latest available information.

“It’s also a great way to meet up with fellow DLA members, whether they be old friends or new ones in the making, particularly after the past two years. Face to face meetups at events like DTS are something we have all missed, and as well as being fantastic socially, they can also really add value to your business. I’ve received some amazing advice and tips from my peers over the years, and hopefully, I’ve given some as well!”

Another advantage of the DLA’s collaboration with DTS is that the team will be on-site during the event. Existing members can drop by the Association Membership Lounge to catch up with friends and colleagues, or to find out what the DLA is focusing on right now. There will also be an opportunity for others to find out more about what the DLA stands for and how they can support individuals and businesses in the coming months and years.

Steve adds:

“No matter why you are visiting DTS, I sincerely hope you enjoy the show. Come and visit the DLA team in the Association Membership Lounge to say hi!”

The DLA will be just one of several professional bodies and associations attending DTS this May. Be sure to check out the exhibitor list to plan your visit so you don’t miss anyone you want to talk to!

The next Dental Technology Showcase (DTS) will be held on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th May 2022, Birmingham NEC, co-located with the British Dental Conference & Dentistry Show.
