Innovation Gets a Dynamic Showcase at the 2020 Annual Session

Interact with the latest orthodontic innovations through a variety of platforms in The Exchange, new in the Exhibit Hall at the 2020 Annual Session. Plan to visit The Exchange to:

  • View the absolute latest products / processes / services being offered by our entire exhibiting community at the New Product Showcase;
  • Meet representatives from the newest companies in orthodontics, and learn about their products at their Start-Up Pods within The Exchange;
  • Listen in as entrepreneurs pitch their businesses to investors as they try to win a capital investment during “Ortho Tank.” With a format modeled on that of the popular ABC show, Shark Tank, Ortho Tank presentations will be judged by investors who may elect to work with presenters. This program will be Monday, April 4 from 9:30 – 11 am in The Exchange;
  • Easily Compare 3D printers and software products side-by-side by attending “The Lineup.” Featuring sequential 10-minute presentations by orthodontic 3D printing and software companies, The Lineup will be Saturday, May 2 from 9:30 – 11 am.
