China Glass will take place at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing on the May 24 - 27, 2017.

The exhibition will showcase the development of the global glass industry and provide a professional platform that covers the whole glass industrial chain.

Following a long-term rapid development, China’s glass industry is now facing serious industrial situations such as excess production capacity, an imbalance between supply and demand, a slow pace of structural adjustment and upgrading, and lack of creativity for new demand.

2017 is therefore a year for deepening the supply-side of structural reform to the building materials industry in China.

Innovative achievements of the glass industry, including ultra-clear glass and ultra-thin glass, have continuously been sourced.

Meanwhile, the supply-demand gap is shrinking, and the glass industry showed a growth trend in the first half of 2016.

China Glasss 2017 will cover an exhibition area of over 100,000 square metres in eight halls of the China International Exhibition Center (New Venue).

Altogether, 995 exhibitors have confirmed their booths, including 735 domestic companies and 230 international enterprises.

The exhibition area and the exhibitor quantity increased by 32% and 12% respectively compared with the last event.

Some exhibitors from Russia, Mexico and Saudi Arabia will make their debut at the show.

There are three state pavilions, Italian, American and German, including 75 exhibitors confirmed at the event.

The exhibition is expected to attract more than 40,000 visitors from over 70 countries.
