The 21st edition of Vitrum 2019 has drawn to a close after reporting excellent final results.

“The industrial world grapples with “virtual defenses” as the Cybersecurity market and Cybercrime continue to grow” seminar was held in the Meeting Area in the morning and focused on the issue of corporate data protection.

The seminar is said to have successfully concluded the cycle of technical workshops designed to assist trade professionals with the implementation of corporate best practices in the most sensitive areas in the glass processing industry.

Glass Tourism, an initiative spurred by the desire to put the Italian villages that built and preserved the cultural heritage of the age-old glass art on the world map, was the highlight event in the Artisans Area.

The award ceremony for the “Invite and Win” competition also took place, attended by many exhibitors whose enthusiastic participation in the initiative contributed to promoting visits to Vitrum.

The winners in each category were as follows:

1st Place Overall Bavelloni
1st Place large stand category Intermac - Biesse
1st Place medium stand category Tecno Glass
1st Place small stand category Talamoni
1st Place co-exhibitor category B Solution

Vitrum 2019 is said to have exceeded trade professionals’ expectations by offering an array of products displayed via stands, technical workshops, B2B meetings with international key players, cultural events and networking opportunities, complemented by moments of entertainment providing the right mix of business and pleasure.

Dino Zandonella Necca, Vitrum President, said: “We focused on visitor quality.

“Vitrum 2019 managed to involve the anticipated number of professionals, whose high business potential was extremely valued.

“Thanks to the 120 professionals in the ITA delegation and to the efforts expended by the Associations within the glass international community, Vitrum has become increasingly international, as the international visitors far outnumbered the Italians.

“We therefore feel Vitrum 2019 has yielded extraordinary results and managed to meet and exceed the expectations of all trade professionals in attendance.”
