Date: 24.10.2017 - 25.10.2017
Colombia Glass – The Glass Industry Event for Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru and Panama – Bogotá, 24-25 October 2017 will take place in one of the best performing countries in the South American continent.

Colombia is the fourth largest country in area, has almost 50 million inhabitants and ranks as the third Latin American economy. It plays a central role in South American continent, as it borders on Panama, Peru, Ecuador, Veneuela and Brazil.

Furthermore, it is outward-looking internationally and has signed trade agreements with many countries (United States, European Union, Canada), and is part of Mercosur, the Pacific Alliance, EFTA, Triangulo del Norte, and Caricom.

Colombia has recorded positive growth in GDP over recent years due to its dynamic domestic market, government incentives for investment and stability for investors.

The country can count on good expertise in glass, both imported and domestic. The Colombian glass industry focuses on both flat and hollow-container glass markets and leading international glass companies are already present there.

Both the beverage and pharmaceutical industry register significant results and can only improve in the next few years.

The building sector, as a result of Plan de Fomento a la Productividad y a l’Empleo, is expected to show compound annual growth of 12 per cent. Colombia is also the fourth largest vehicle producer in Latin America.

Colombia Glass 2017 is promoted by and supported by two leading business magazines for the glass industry: Glass Machinery Plants & Accessories - for hollow and special glass – and Glass Technology International for flat and bent glass.
