Our annual Supplier Partnership Day 2018 was a resounding success with over 80 of our top suppliers giving up their valuable time to come together to discuss the wonderful world of UK dentistry. And some even walked away with an award…
Hosted at London Stansted, we welcomed suppliers from up and down the country and a few from beyond who jetted in from far flung places.
The format of the day gave everyone the opportunity to enjoy the good, old fashioned pleasure of talking face-to-face and meeting our recently appointed managing director, Paul Adams.
Mimi Lau, commercial director kicked off the event and we were also pleased to introduce Tom Riall, CEO of the IDH Group as our first speaker of the day.
Sharing his thoughts on the dental sector, including highlights from within it, Tom Riall also provided details of the group’s strategy for the next three years.
Up next was Paul Adams exploring the unique nature of the dental market and Dental Directory’s position within it to push innovation combined with great customer service.
We rounded up the day with talks from our teams within Purchasing, Procurement, Marketing, Sales and director of MedFX, Nick Tait on the rapid growth within facial aesthetics.
An informative and lively Q&A session proceeded our coveted awards ceremony that closed the event in celebration.
Huge congratulations to all our award winners and a warm thank you again to all our suppliers for attending.
