JAKARTA, 20 September 2023 – Following a successful three-day run, the Indonesia Dental Exhibition & Conference (IDEC) 2023, organised by Koelnmesse Pte Ltd and PT Traya Eksibisi Internasional in collaboration with the Indonesian Dental Association (PDGI), has welcomed 5110 visitors from 26 countries across 3 days, a 22% increase in visitor numbers since the last edition in 2019.
