Budapest 18-19th October 2019

Welcome to the 2nd Urban International Hard and Soft Tissue Regeneration Symposium


We are happy to announce that following the great success of our 1st event, we are organizing the 2nd Urban International Hard and Soft Tissue Regeneration Symposium in Budapest, Hungary, on 18-19th October, 2019. The event will again take place at the wonderful Vigadó concert hall.

In 2017 we had the honour to receive 560 participants from 45 countries.

By attending this Symposium you will have a unique opportunity to explore the most recent scientific findings in the field of hard and soft tissue regeneration.
Our line-up of speakers represents an elite group of doctors and academics who will share their knowledge and experience, and address questions from the audience. We are convinced that they will again provide the highest level of scientific content.

The event is a great opportunity to exchange views and best practices with dental professionals attending from all around the world. You will also have the opportunity to explore our exhibitors’ latest products and services.

The Symposium will be held on 18-19th October, 2019. On the days before and after the event, i.e. 17th and 20th October, there will be the opportunity to participate in several hands-on workshops with a limited number of attendees. The workshops in 2017, attended by over 160 people, were a great success. We are convinced that this year they will be equally sucessful.

Why Attend?

This unique symposium reviews all the cutting edge approaches to reconstructing hard and soft tissue deficiencies.

World-renowned clinicians who specialize in regenerative implant therapy will present their various approaches.

Participants will have a chance to assess and then select the most appropriate technique for their particular patient.

Vertical and Horizontal GBR, major autogenous bone grafting, tissue engineering with growth factors, soft tissue engineering with soft tissue substitutes, as well as diagnosis and management of complications, will all be presented in detail.

Attendees will have a chance to participate in practical hands-on workshops to master their selected techniques


Our venue is the Vigadó. The building was opened in January 1833 with a grand ball, and ever since has been venue of the highest culture. Ferenc Erkel (the composer of the Hungarian National Anthem) and both Johann Strauss the Elder, and the Younger performed here several times. It was also here that Ferenc Liszt gave the first charity concert following the great flood of 1838 that devastated the city. In 1867 Emperor Franz Joseph attended the banquet here in the Vigadó in honour of coronation. Mascagni, Dvořak and Debussy are just some from the long list of people who performed at the Vigadó. As for Hungarians, Ernő Dohnányi gave his first solo concert here and Béla Bartók made his debut here in 1905.

The façade of the palace is decorated with the Hungarian Coat of Arms as well as great figures from Hungarian history.

Since the Vigadó has hosted such masters of their profession in the past, we thought it appropriate to organize our event in this renowned building for the participation of such people today, masters of their own profession of dental surgery.
