The name change of the UK’s industry body, which represents over 80% of the dental industry, has driven a complete brand refresh. The new advertising creative explains the rationale behind the name change as the association drops ‘Trade’ and gains ‘Industry’, to convey the increasing diversity of its membership, in addition to highlighting the benefits of choosing to do business with quality-conscious British Dental Industry Association (BDIA) member companies.
Tony Reed, BDIA executive director, explained 'BDIA encompasses the wider world of dentistry beyond the direct "trade" including banks, insurance companies, publishing companies as well as suppliers of services and technologies to the dental industry amongst its membership. The new advertising campaign is refreshingly simple in its approach and hopefully it will ensure the association’s new name is instantly recognisable throughout the dental sector.'
Since 1923, the association has played a role within the industry as a not-for-profit organisation, using its funds solely for the purpose of developing dentistry for the benefit of its members, the profession and the public.
Today, BDIA plays a pivotal role in driving quality standards within the dental industry: equipping its members with exclusive information and statistics to provide greater insight and knowledge; creating opportunities for networking and collaboration to address market challenges; shaping the future of the wider dental industry through its proactive engagement with relevant bodies; organising exhibitions that deliver a key focal point for the industry and the profession to conduct business for mutual benefit; as well as providing highly regarded training for the industry ensuring a thorough understanding of the essentials of dentistry.
