Excitement for WORLD EXPO 2020 is reaching new heights as the United Arab Emirates (UAE) prepares to welcome over 25 million international visitors to Dubai – one of the Middle East’s most global destinations. Back in 2013, the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE) general assembly in Paris, France, awarded Dubai as the host city for the 2020 World Expo and it’s been nothing but excitement and careful planning ever since. Over the course of six months, the already bustling city of Dubai will become the epicentre of global attention, bringing together representatives of world media, business, medicine, dentistry, tourism and hospitality, fashion, entertainment and much more. 


Aptly timed to coincide with EXPO 2020, between 29th and 31st October 2020, CAPP will have the honour and distinct pleasure of welcoming over 5,000 international dental professionals who will bring their knowledge and expertise to the region’s largest dentistry-focused educational conferences. Introduced through a new concept spread over three days of Continuing Dental Education, CAPP is organising two conferences, in parallel:

  • 15th CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry Conference & Exhibition (organised since 2005)
  • 12th Dental Facial Cosmetic Conference & Exhibition (organised since 2008)

With over 3,200 dental professionals in attendance, 2019 saw the overwhelming success of the 11th Dental Facial Cosmetic Conference & Exhibition in November 2019. Similarly, northwards of 2,500 participated in the 14th CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry Conference & Exhibition in April 2019 as well. Expected to achieve even bigger success, next year will see the amalgamation these two highly praised professional congresses to form the 2020 CAPP DENTAL CONFEXPO taking place at the Madinat Jumeirah Events & Conference Centre, Dubai, UAE.

The CAPP DENTAL CONFEXPO will feature:

  • 15th Middle Eastern & 20th Global CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry International Conference
  • 12th Dental Facial Cosmetic International Conference
  • Digital Orthodontics Symposium
  • Dental Hygienist Seminar
  • Dental Technician International Meeting
  • Round Table Trainings
  • Over 30 Pre- & Post-Conference Hands-On Training Courses
  • Free Training Sessions
  • Poster Presentations
  • Trade Show Exhibition (over 100 leading dental manufacturers)
  • Aesthetic MENA Dentistry Awards 2020
  • I Love My Dentist Awards 2020

Over the past 15 years CAD/CAM & Digital Dentistry has played a key role in underpinning the scientific understanding of digital dentistry. This is just as important today as it has always been and, this year, the conference program will look into optimal ways to achieve effective results in the everchanging industry, whilst updating delegates with the latest news, developments, tips and tricks in all things dentistry. In recent years, Dental Facial Cosmetics has become amongst the most sought-after patient requested treatments, welcoming innovations around smile appearances, shape, colour, alignment, size and overall health and function. 

To meet its goals, the Scientific Committee has selected a multitude of scientific sessions, panels, and problem-based cases that will provide both intensive learning through hands-on experiences and practitioner-led sessions based on diverse disciplines. Recent findings with clinical implications, marketing, and emerging technologies will be covered in further interactive sessions and live demonstrations. 

We look forward to sharing this and more during these three exciting days in October 2020’s Conference & Exhibition in Dubai, UAE.
