- GNYDM - A Virtual Celebration

Here below the official announcement of GNYDM 2020 going virtual:

For 96 years, the Greater New York Dental Meeting has been honored to be in a partnership with the Dental Trade. Even with the challenges of 9/11 and Hurricane Sandy, we have worked together to produce the largest dental and healthcare event in the United States. We are now faced with an enemy that has challenged us all in ways we never imagined. 

The Greater New York Dental Meeting and its two component sponsors, the New York County Dental Society representing the Dentists of Manhattan and the Second District Dental Society, representing the Dentists of Brooklyn and Staten Island, fully understand how the dental trade is suffering during these trying times. We feel your pain, as our dental offices too, cannot work at full capacity and our team members have been reduced in hours and in some cases furloughed.

The Javits Convention Center in New York has now decided that the Greater New York Dental Meeting cannot hold an event that has grown to 55,000+ attendees. With that in mind, we decided to change the conversation from gloom to a celebration of our profession, and the future. As other meetings are developing profit making virtual meetings to replace their traditional events, we feel it is time to give back to the dental trade.

The Greater New York Dental Meeting will hold its own version of a virtual event, beginning as usual, the day after Thanksgiving, but WITHOUT the intention to be profitable. To support the dental trade, we are making it as affordable as possible and will charge only 5 for a standard single booth space. We will continue our policy of FREE admission to any dental professional for the entire event so that we can attract attendees to enhance your potential sales. In addition, we will also provide ALL CE for FREE

To further pass along savings to our exhibitors who had contracted with us for 2020 traditional booth space, we are offering three options: 

- apply your deposit towards a 2020 virtual booth space and earn a 5% discount
- apply it towards a 2021 booth space position and obtain a 3% savings 
- contract for both 2020 and 2021 and earn both of the previous discounts plus an additional 0 saving off of the 2021 booth price 

We are currently also working on all of our 2021 programs including: seminars, workshops, “Live” Dentistry on the exhibit floor, Specialty programs, hygiene and assistant programs, nursing education, Digital Dentistry program,  the children’s Smiles program and our recognized healthcare screening event with immunization services. 

Lastly, any exhibitor who contracts for any 2021 sponsorship and advertising programs, and sends in their payment before February 1, will earn a discount of 10%. If payments are received after February 1 but before March 1, they will receive a 5% discount. 

Our new 2020 virtual meeting prospectus and sponsorship brochure for this year’s event will be available shortly. Please contact Carla (carla@gnydm.com) with any 2020/2021 exhibit questions and Dana (dana@gnydm.com) for any 2020/2021 sponsorship opportunities. 

We are planning for a bright future that lies ahead for dentistry. Please join us for a virtual celebration in 2020 and let’s work together to bring back the face-to-face tradition with our 2021 Meeting.
