Realignment of the Supporting Programme & New President

The anniversary edition of glasstec will be presented in a revamped format from 23 to 26 October 2018. In addition to a new look, the conference concept of glasstec will deliver even more added value for all visitor target groups.

Featuring a number of high-calibre presentations, the “glasstec conference” in Hall 10 offers in-depth background knowledge about the exhibits of the special show “glass technology live” and thus further closes the gap between theory and practice. 

Kicking off the event on the morning before the trade fair will be the technology conference “function meets glass” (at CCD Ost/East). On Tuesday, the partners HVG-DGG and BV Glas will present the topics of glass production and markets.

The thematic focus on Wednesday will be on new and future technologies, presented by the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).

The increased dovetailing of theory and practice will again become clear on Thursday, in an architecture-focussed morning programme designed jointly by the North Rhine-Westphalian Chamber of Architects and the technical-scientific conference “engineered transparency”. Until the End of glasstec, the glasstec conference will be all about science and research.

 

Start of Stand Space Allocation

Stands in the exhibition halls will be allocated at the end of the official registration period on 2 December 2017. Registrations are of course still possible via the direct link at http://www.glasstec.de/1330.

But hurry – the best spots are highly coveted and sell out quickly. Companies that have already participated in 2016 may use pre-filled, editable forms.

 

New glasstec President

Representing the glazing trade, federal guild master Martin Gutmann will serve as the president of the 25th glasstec. In this role he’ll succeed Dr. Frank Heinricht, president of the BV Glas and chairman of the management board of SCHOTT AG.

The presidency alternates in two-year intervals between the Federal Association of the German Glazing Trade (BIV) and the Federal Association of the German Glass Industry (BV Glas). The two organisations are conceptual sponsors of glasstec, together with the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).

 

University Network to Organise Special Show

The special show glass technology live in Hall 11 will for the first time be organised by a network of universities. TU Darmstadt, TU Delft, TU Dresden and TU Dortmund will present the hub @ glasstec.

Featuring a cross-sectoral range of topics, pioneering exhibits will illustrate the future of technology, production and glass application. Four glass cubes will showcase solutions from the segments

  • Interactive Façades/Display Glass
  • Energy and Performance
  • Structural Glass: Solid Glass/Thin Glass
  • New Technologies

glasstec 2018 will take place at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre from 23 to 26 October 2018. Information about the trade fair is available online at www.glasstec.de and www.glasstec-online.com.
