The organisers of glasstec 2016 have found the positive upswing in the glass industry reflected by a strong demand for stand bookings.

The exhibitor database and ticket shop are online as of now.

The number of registered exhibitors and occupied exhibition space already exceeds previous event’s levels.

At glasstec 2014, 1,217 companies from glass machinery production, glass manufacturing and skilled crafts occupied 60,601 square metres. 63% of them came from abroad to Düsseldorf.

For over 40 years glasstec has served as a trendsetter and reflection of the glass industry.

Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director at Messe Düsseldorf, noted:

“The glass industry is undergoing changes and we consistently accompany it on this path.

“In 2016 glasstec will again cover the entire breadth of possibilities and innovations.”

Marc Everling, Head of Communications at AGC Interpane, also expects this year’s event to bring a further rise in the number of international visitors.

“glasstec is the unrivalled trade fair highlight in 2016 for AGC Interpane and also provides an outstanding opportunity to present ourselves to an ever more international audience with innovative products and a new trade fair appearance.

“We look forward to a successful event.”
