WELCOME

Dear Prospective Exhibitor,

What an awesome feeling it is to finally be reaching out to all our Exhibitors whom we call family! It has been a long road these past almost two years and better days are coming for sure!! The Dental Profession has been hit extremely hard with little to no contact with dentists. With the great leadership and guidance of the GLIDM Board led by Dr. Guenter Jonke, we are forging ahead for a “live” show for 2022! It is both an honor and privilege to invite you to the 56th Annual Session of the Greater Long Island Dental Meeting, being held on Tuesday, April 12th and Wednesday, April 13th at the Hilton Hotel in Melville, New York. GLIDM is graciously sponsored by the Nassau, and Suffolk County Dental Societies.

Our Annual Session will open on Tuesday, April 12th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm. A complimentary reception in the Exhibition Hall will include food stations, wine, beer and soda accompanied with live entertainment. Exhibitor raffles continue to be both fun and successful on Tuesday evening for both Exhibitors and Doctors. We have extended the raffles to include Wednesday for those Exhibitors who wish to participate a second day. We will (information regarding the Exhibitor raffles will be included in the Exhibitor Show Packet sent in January).

We have assembled a world class line-up of scientific presenters. Most courses will be of 2-3 hours in duration allowing attendees to have more time in the Exhibition Hall. All doctors will be entered into the $1,000 Grand Prize drawing on Wednesday afternoon to fill Exhibition Hall and a “happy hour” from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm will close the 2022 Annual Session. There is no registration fee to attend and it will be two years since our last meeting so make your show specials really count!! Advertise your booth and show specials to your client base to help raise awareness of your participation. Information to advertise with GLIDM will be sent out shortly.

Your contract will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Every effort will be made to respond to your requests regarding booth assignment. To reserve booth space, kindly fill out the enclosed application and remit to the Greater Long Island Dental Meeting, along with your deposit of $750 per booth space (all major credit cards accepted).

Our Exhibitors are truly the foundation of GLIDM. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your years of continued support and look forward to having you join us in celebrating over 56 years of dental excellence on April 12th and 13th. If you have any questions or need assistance with this process, please contact Fran McHugh at 631-244-0722 or email us at glidm@aol.com.

Sincerely,

GLIDM Planning Board
