In addition to the scientific program during the main congress, ROOTS SUMMIT offers a number of pre-congress workshops that will update participants on the most current treatment options and concepts, innovative techniques, and state-of-the-art methods, techniques and clinical tips in endodontics.
We are pleased to have you as a sponsor on-site. In addition to one of the most respected scientific programs in endodontics, ROOTS SUMMIT offers dental product manufacturers the opportunity for professional and personal engagement with key opinion leaders and top-level endodontics professionals from around the world.

ABOUT ROOTS SUMMIT
Facebook has been an amazing catalyst for bringing endodontists and general dentists together, intellectually and scientifically, while in pursuit of improved patient outcomes. However, being together with people of shared interest, passion, dedication and ethics is where the magic really happens, the strongest connections are made and the true community of ROOTS SUMMIT is best experienced.
From the late 1990s, our mission has been to be an open and inclusive global learning forum accessible to anyone involved in any aspect of the practice of endodontic therapy. In this spirit, we invite you to join us in Prague from May 21 to 24, 2020.

The Cubex Centre Prague is a multipurpose center in the Trimaran building in Pankrác, the fourth district of Prague. The location provides ideal accessibility via public transport. It is two subway stops away from the historic city center, and a growing infrastructure in the surrounding area creates sufficient capacity for accommodation as well as parking. The neighboring Arkády Pankrác shopping mall offers a variety of shops and restaurants.
The main hall, with a capacity of 1,000 people, can be divided into three separate rooms by soundproof partitions and is complemented by smaller halls and lounges, creating a total capacity for accommodating 1,200 people. The extensive foyers can be also used for events. The largest of them has an impressive 102 m2 projection screen, onto which any chosen content can be projected.
An aspect unique to the center is its lighting system, appropriately named the Chameleon Concept. This allows personalization of the entire center with colors selected according to the client’s needs.
The Cubex Centre Prague offers a total of 3,700 m2 of space for various types of events. However, this area can be further increased by connection with the neighboring City Conference Center, which has another three halls, five other sections and two foyers with a total area of 1,000 m2 and the capacity to seat 470 people.
