Sponsored by Vitrum and ITA, the two-day meeting June 6-7, 2018, will convene global leaders from the world of glass in Italy for the third time.

Just around the corner, the Convention of the International Glass Industry Associations, organized by Vitrum with the support of ITA (Italian Trade Agency), will be held in Murano (Venice) June 6-7, 2018.

After a successful first meeting in 2017, relationships were strengthened during Vitrum 2017 – Italy’s International Glass Show – in Milan last October. And now, the leading representatives of the global glass industry will again meet on the island of glass.

Delegations from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Finland, the United Kingdom, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, the United States, Switzerland and, of course, Italy, will be attending. Representatives of 15 international glass industry publications have also been invited to attend the two-day meeting. 

A demanding program is in store. In the early afternoon of June 6, the delegations will meet at the offices of the Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, research center and global point of reference for businesses, associations, universities and institutions affiliated with the world of glass.

The “hottest” topics in the world of glass will be discussed. Topics that were identified a year ago as priorities by all the delegates will be analyzed in depth by the various representatives this year, country by country and market by market, based on the latest developments and new requirements.

The focus will be on technical and production standardization, education and training, history and culture, energy and environmental stewardship.

Time has also been set aside for less intense parallel events. Like a demonstration (on Thursday June 7) of the ancient “bead-makers” art, the typically Venetian artisan tradition of making glass beads for necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry – an experience that encapsulates centuries of skills and cultural aesthetics, passed down from one generation to the next.

This treasure-trove of knowledge is awaiting UNESCO designation as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, following a proposal made in 2013 by three different, and geographically distant locations, but with a common bond in the art of bead-making: Venice, Paris and Ghana.

The second Convention of International Glass Industry Associations will conclude with a visit to “Le Stanze del Vetro” on the island of San Giorgio, in partnership with the Fondazione Giorgio Cini. Fondazione Cini is a cultural center of international caliber that hosts year-round research activities, exhibits and meetings, shows and concerts as well as conferences held by qualified scientific and cultural organizations. Convention attendees will make an exclusive visit to “Le Stanze del Vetro”, the prestigious gallery-museum dedicated to the history and culture of glass processing from the early 1900s to the present.
