With 28 speakers, 250 participants and 18 exhibitors, the 1st Scientific Congress for Aligner Orthodontics of the DGAO eV started in November 2010 in Cologne's InterContinental, today the Dorint Hotel am Heumarkt. A success across the board.
Since then, four more face-to-face events have followed with steadily increasing numbers of participants and exhibitors, which resulted in a move to Cologne's Gürzenich. Most recently, due to the pandemic, the 1st Virtual Congress was held, at which the DGAO welcomed 700 international participants. A unique, interactive 3D exhibition platform crowned this first digital event.
This year, the DGAO eV is organizing a hybrid congress in Cologne's Gürzenich, at which numerous renowned speakers will once again present their scientific contributions to the international audience. An extensive industrial exhibition and the gala evening at SkyKöln complete the program.
