Glassman South America is heading to Argentina, to take advantage of the host of new glassmaking facilities that have recently opened in this dynamic and fast growing region.

Held in Buenos Aires on the 29-30th March 2017, Glassman South America is a free to attend two-day exhibition for the hollow and container glass manufacturing industry, and will be complimented by the Glassman conference.

Exhibitors at the show will cover the entire hollow glass manufacturing spectrum, from weighing raw materials through to forming equipment, through to decorating or warehousing capabilities.

The Central and South American regions are enjoying a boom in business at the moment, with a growing middle class population and accompanying disposable income, along with easy access to the firmly established North American market.

O-I and Verallia already have factories in Argentina, while domestic manufacturers such as Cattorini and Rigolleau are strongly represented.

In addition, a new glassmaking site has opened recently in nearby Uruguay while neighbouring Chile has an established hollow glassmaking industry thanks to its famous wine exports.

Registration for Glassman is now open.
