Government lockdowns and travel bans have led to the cancellation of Glasstec 2021. This won’t be the first time Glasstec was cancelled as the original 2020 was also scrapped due to the pandemic. Messe Düsseldorf GmbH has made the decision to resume the regular scheduling and have the trade fair for glass manufacturing take place in September 2022.
We have the new official dates – September 20th – September 23rd. What we know is that Glasstec 2022 will be a hybrid event. In addition to the physical portion taking place at Messe Dusseldorf, attendees can access special shows and conferences online. The exhibition grounds will follow strict COVID-19 preventive measures.
Glasstec covers cutting-edge innovations and solutions within the glass processing and ﬁnishing industry. The international trade fair is based in Düsseldorf, Germany and operates out of Messe Düsseldorf. Editions are held on a biennial schedule and tend to fall sometime around October. In terms of programming, there are four packed days of meetings and additional events. Glasstec sees all the major industry players gather under one roof, which makes it an essential trade fair for you. It’s a natural meeting point between supply and demand and opens doors to new markets all over Europe and beyond. At the same time, Glasstec has an exceptional support program, where top experts share their experience and discuss market trends in their early stages.
What’s truly impressive about Glasstec is its product range as buyers can discover the processing chain in full under one roof. You have multifunctional facade technology, solar end products, glass products, solar production technology and components, crafts, glass production tech, testing, tools and maintenance parts. As far as exhibitors go, some names you’ll encounter include Orshade Daylight Control Systems, Acmon Systems, Olivotto Glass Technologies and GRUPO CRESPO VIDRIO. Trade visitors came from all major industry sectors whether it’s from architecture and glass manufacturing or mechanical engineering and window manufacturing. There’s a lot of focus on European markets with the most buyers and professionals coming from Italy, France, the UK, Netherlands, Poland, Belgium, Spain and Austria. Nevertheless, exhibitors can hope to grow their client list to locations such as Russia, the USA and China.
Did You Know?
Glasstec has always impressed with how its structures its editions. There’s always a lot to do and to experience innovations in fun ways. The trade fair changes the format from one edition to the next, but some things never change such as Glass Technology Live, Crafts Center and Glass Art. If you’re a start-up, you’re in a great position to garner much needed attention at the Startup Zone. As Glasstec moves forward it’s also changing its informational program. The conference is going to be reworked and rebranded as ‘think tank’ and feature lecturers by the biggest name in the glass industry. The focus? As much theory as practical application.
