Sarah Whittall, Events and Marketing Coordinator, introduces us to The Business Skills Theatre at this year’s BDIA Dental Showcase.
Is it just me or is it unbelievable to think that the BDIA Dental Showcase is upon us once again? With just under a week to go until the start of the show, I thought I’d share with you what we have in store for you and give you a taster of what you can look forward to.
We’re back at the NEC in Birmingham this year and from 22nd – 24th October, you’ll find the Practice Plan stand (E165) – the home of The Business Skills Theatre. This is a theatre on a much bigger scale than we’ve ever had before and jam-packed with an enviable programme of expert speakers to help you stand out from the crowd and make your business the best it can be!
