ICD and DTI sign media partnership agreement
COLOGNE, Germany: As of Wednesday evening, Dental Tribune International (DTI) is the official media partner of the International College of Dentists (ICD). The contract signing, which took place at the OEMUS MEDIA and DTI media lounge at IDS, was witnessed by DTI CEO Torsten Oemus, Dr Dov Sydney, Dr Mauro Labanca and representatives of Henry Schein, including Chief Global Communications Officer Gerard Meuchner.
The ICD will celebrate its centennial in 2020 and is therefore the oldest and largest honour society for dentists in the world. Sydney, International Editor and Director of Communications, as well as General Chair of the College Centennial Committee, said: “Over the past 100 years, there have been changes in social structure and the economy and yet we have continued to grow because our purpose and our goals continue to be relevant in every age and stage of world development. And now we are going to build on that with DTI and make it a long-term relationship. They help us, we help them, everybody is happy.”
The organisation was conceived by Drs Louis Ottofy and Tsurukichi Okumura with the vision of an organisation of outstanding dentists. Today, the ICD has 12,000 fellows in 122 affiliated countries, from a diversity of cultures and social backgrounds and with different professional experiences.
