The conference, exhibition and workshops bring together more than 400 industry leaders and glass technology experts for three days to discuss, debate and network.
New features have been added, such as a reshaped conference with the theme of Innovation, Business and Design.
More than 100 speakers are presenting in the conference, reviewing the latest glass technology.
The sessions cover a diverse range of topics from glass processing to the use of glass in construction.
Highlights in the glass processing sessions are on advanced technologies in coatings, lamination, tempering and IGU.
Key points in the use of glass in construction deal with glass in structural applications, high performance facades as well as challenges and solutions in architecture.
More than 15 practical and interactive workshops are also organised, covering a wide range of topics on patents, glass processing techniques, glass products quality and case studies on the use of glass in architecture.
Energy efficiency is also high on the agenda, as glass structures and window solutions are the central elements when it comes to energy consumption in buildings.
