Edelweiss & Gurgl Hotel, Obergurgl, Austria

Expertly put together by the Denplan Events Team, the programme includes leisurely days on the slopes, with ski school for those who want to improve their technique, as well as winter walks, hearty suppers and traditional apres-ski socialising.


Innovative CPD lectures

The conference is balanced with 6 hours of stimulating CPD lectures, thoughtfully and expertly presented.

Socialise and connect

Whether on the slopes, on the ski lifts or while enjoying the Austrian après-ski hospitality, this event offers a chance to connect with fellow professionals and compare ideas and experiences, in a fun, informal environment.

Meticulously planned

With every detail taken care of, from travel and hotel to lift passes and restaurants, the whole group can relax, and enjoy the experience.

If you want an amazing trip you'll not go far wrong by joining in the fun in 2025 and my thanks to the Denplan team for the incredible levels of organisation they went to!

Recap from Ski Conference 2024

This year's ski conference marked yet another triumph, as dentists and their guests enjoyed a well-deserved break with breathtaking scenery, outstanding skiing, delicious food, and as always - lots of fun and camaraderie shared among fellow dentists and the Denplan team.

"Smiles in the memory bank for years to come!"

Mitchell Clark, Principal Dentist at Cygnet House Dental Studio, attended the Denplan Ski Conference for the first time in 2024.

"I would encourage anyone of any skiing ability to attend the Denplan Ski Conference. It was our first time and we were made to feel very welcome in a mixed crowd of regular attendees and newbies like ourselves. The hotel was an absolute gem with amazing rooms and an utterly incredible spa. The ski in and out couldn't have been better or easier (and warm boots...oh yes!).

To say it had the "wow" factor is a serious understatement, and as a foodie – well, all the included food was incredible! The Denplan team moved heaven and earth to ensure that everyone has a great time, making new friends and fabulous memories - the afternoon we spent as a group in the  Nederhute was an absolute riot and has put smiles in the memory bank for years to come!

On a professional note, the CPD was of very high quality and delivered in a friendly way at times that allowed good attendance and was always relevant and interesting."

The programme of events did not disappoint

CPD lectures

This year's conference included topics such as:

  • record-keeping
  • consent
  • body image
  • topical practice issues
  • a product-led approach to innovation
  • using AI to improve the patient experience. 

A thriving community

We take great pride in the close-knit community we've created through our one-of-a-kind events:

"Interaction with dentists and team -dentistry can be a lonely profession and attendance at these events helps body and soul."

- Helen, Ski Conference 2024

Something for everyone

There were plenty of activities away from the slopes too, as attendees:

  • Learned all about how 'Spectre' was filmed in Solden at the James Bond Experience
  • Visited the unique collection at the Motorcycle Museum
  • Enjoyed winter hiking trails along the river to Hochgurgl
  • And soaked up the laughter during nights out at après bars!
