The 25th glasstec which will be held in Düsseldorf from October 23 to 26, 2018 will be delivering a new conference concept. Martin Gutmann, German federal guilt master, will be the new President. From December onwards the stand spaces will be allocated.

 

Realignment of the Supporting Programme

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 machines technologies, presented by 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.

 

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

 

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. 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 VDMA glasstec 2018 will take place at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre from 23 to 26 October 2018.
