MONTREAL, Quebec, CANADA: The exhibit hall at the Journées dentaires internationales du Québec convention is now open. The meeting, organized by the Ordre des dentistes du Québec, is being held Oct. 15 to 19 (Friday to Tuesday) at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, and the exhibit hall is open Oct. 18 and 19 (Monday and Tuesday).
If you haven’t yet had a chance to check out the exhibit hall of the Journées dentaires internationales du Québec convention, now is a good time to do so, as the exhibit hall is brimming with aisles and aisles of companies and company reps just waiting to show you the latest products, equipment and technology in the industry. Many companies are also offering specials that aren’t available anywhere else as well as handing out samples for you to take back to your practices.
There are many booths to look at.
