2nd GLASSPEX INDIA 2011

Registrations now open for the leading trade fair for the glass industry in Mumbai

The premiere in December 2009 was a resounding success, with praise for GLASSPEX INDIA in New Delhi coming from both the 139 exhibitors from more than 20 different countries as well as the 3,200 trade visitors. They attended due to the wealth of innovative products and the excellent opportunity it offered to make contact with business partners from around the world. Some 98 percent of the exhibitors highlighted the high level of qualification amongst the visitors and 97 percent said that their participation was a success, while 93 percent anticipated good post-fair business – even in these turbulent times.


Reason enough to repeat GLASSPEX INDIA, which is already scheduled to take place again from 12 – 14 January 2011, accompanied by the high-level conference of the AIGMF (All India Glass Manufacturers’ Federation). Registration is now open and the packages available include turnkey stand solutions with every amenity.

GLASSPEX INDIA is organised by Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and its Indian subsidiary Messe Düsseldorf India. It is affiliated to the world’s largest and most successful trade fair for the industry, glasstec, which last attracted over 55,000 visitors and over 1,300 international exhibitors to Düsseldorf. On the Indian Subcontinent it brings all of the key players together. The venue was by no means picked by the organisers by chance, as India is seen as one of the world’s biggest growth markets. It has a young society and it is growing in financial strength. Every area of its economy is benefitting from investments in the future, be it in the building industry, in the pharmaceuticals sector, the enormously important automobile industry, in communication service providers or in the food & beverage industry. Glass is needed in all of these sectors to meet the population’s growing demand for modern, safe or hygienically packed products.

Top-class know-how is called for to develop individual and customised solutions, provided by international manufacturers, who will be meeting at GLASSPEX INDIA 2011 in Mumbai to take the opportunity to get a foothold in the region or to build on existing contacts. The All India Glass Manufacturers’ Federation, AIGMF, has also offered its support to the fair, in light of the excellent outcome of last year’s fair, and will be holding its 9th trade conference, which is likely to be of particular interest to experts from the building trade, at the Bombay Exhibition Centre in parallel to the fair. The title of the conference in 2011 will be “Applications and Usage of Glass in Architecture”. The VDMA is also supporting the trade fair again.

The second GLASSPEX INDIA will take place in Hall 6 of the Bombay Exhibition Centre Goregaon (East). The site is located about ten minutes from the international airport and 20 minutes from the city centre. The trade fair will present the entire supply chain through from manufacture to application in the fields of flat and hollow glass. Base glass will also be on the agenda, as will processed glass and refined glass, so anyone interested in the solar power sector should definitely put it in their diary.
