The glasstec Preview, which took place for the first time in Düsseldorf on 14 and 15 June 2018, created a new networking platform for exhibitors and journalists.

Journalists from all over Europe met some of the top companies from the glass industry. glasstec's new press service offered participants the opportunity to make new contacts and to exchange information and news from the industry in one-on-one meetings.

"For the 25th glasstec we have been working on several new ideas and concepts. This will be visible to everyone at the trade fair in the autumn.

"With the glasstec Preview, we had already set an example a few months earlier and provided the industry with an additional service tool," said a delighted Birgit Horn, Director of glasstec (pictured on the right).

The glasstec Preview 2018 offered the participating companies the opportunity to personally present their company and its news to the trade press. The innovations can be included in the preliminary reporting of the trade magazines before the trade fair.

“The glasstec Preview was a great opportunity for us to announce our new products before glasstec and to expand our contacts with the trade press.

"Many representatives of trade journals and magazines from all over Europe, many known to us but also many unknown to us were gathered - perfect to reach our target group through direct contact with the trade press," stated Ingo Neuber (M.A.), Manager Pre-Sales, A+W Software.
