exocad hosts its third exocad Insights on October 3–4, 2022. The global event will take place at the Palma Congress Center in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. Around 800 dental technicians and dentists from around the world are expected on site, as well as more than 40 strategic partner companies who will showcase the latest digital technologies. Novica Savic, Chief Commercial Officer at exocad, shares a preview of the two-day event that is dedicated to digital dentistry for labs and practices.
Q: “Learn. Connect. Enjoy.” Can you explain the motto behind exocad Insights 2022?
A: “Learn,” stands for intensive training. “Connect,” means networking in person and on site with the global exocad community—that includes registrants from 24 countries to date. “Enjoy,” reminds us that we also want to enjoy our two days together and have a good time at our evening event.
Q: Who are you targeting with the Insights 2022 event?
A: The event is aimed at dental technicians and dentists who already work digitally in their practices and laboratories or are planning to enter the digital world. The program offers interesting topics for both groups. Guest speakers include leading digital experts from the laboratory and clinical environments, including internationally renowned digital smile design specialist Dr. Christian Coachman from Brazil.
Q: Speaking of topics, what will be discussed on the main stage?
A: Industry trailblazers will give participants tips on how to use digital tools to achieve better esthetic treatment results for patients and how to work even more productively. They’ll demonstrate various ways to collaborate—explaining how laboratories and practices can work seamlessly with each other thanks to modern digital tools. Among the cases presented, participants will see complex cases involving orthodontic, restorative and esthetic aspects.
At Insights, lab owners and dentists will share how they’ve evolved workflows in their labs or practices with digital technologies. They’ll also discuss how labs are bringing dentists with them on the digital journey.
Q: Participating partner companies will also offer sessions. What will those involve?
A: We’ll have 11 different partner sessions, each lasting 30 minutes. Visitors can decide which sessions they’d like to attend while at the event. This way participants can choose the topics most relevant to their practices or labs. Our experience from the first two Insights events has shown us that this 'circuit training' is very well received because it allows participants to take away a variety of new impressions and ideas in a very short amount of time.
Q: What do the participants learn at the exocad software sessions?
A: At this year’s Insights, there will again be new software releases to present. That means the topic for our software sessions on Tuesday has been decided. Based on typical lab and practice cases, users will learn about the new features of the release and hear helpful tips on how to get the most out of the software. The clinical sessions will be geared toward dentists, and we’ll have laboratory sessions for dental technicians. We’ll also have three software stations at the exhibition where our application specialists will be available to answer individual questions and give concrete tips to the participants.
Q: Why is it worth investing in an exocad Insights ticket?
A: The ticket price includes almost everything: presentations, demo sessions, food and drinks throughout the event, and the evening event with dinner and live music on Monday evening. Over two days, participants will receive many new ideas on how to advance their labs or practices using digital technologies. They’ll discover new ways to make workflows more productive and learn how to improve treatment results to benefit patients.
