The Federal Association of the Glass Industry (Bundesverband Glasindustrie e.V.) has elected Dr. Frank Heinricht, Chairman of the Board at Schott AG, for its new president.  This means he will also take office as president for glasstec 2016.

Presidency for this, the world’s leading trade fair alternates in line with its two-year cycle of glasstec between the Bundesverband Glasindustrie e.V. (BV Glas) and the Federal Association of Glazier Trades (BIV). Both organisations alongside the VDMA, the German Engineering Industry Federation (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbauer e.V.). serve as conceptual sponsor of glasstec.

glasstec 2016 is a must for professionals in mechanical engineering, industry, architecture, the trade sector and solar power. Its wide-ranging additional programme includes special shows and conferences, providing added value for all visitors. The main highlight of the trade fair will be the special show “glass technology live”. As before, it will be organized by Prof. Stefan Behling, a Senior Executive Partner at Fosters & Partners and his team from IBK 2 (Institute of Construction Design) at the University of Stuttgart.

The show will feature spectacular exhibits, innovative products and pioneering solutions. This time the focus will be above all on free-form, ultra-thin and solid glass as well as on glass used for information purposes. Again, participation in any of the trade-fair symposia will be free for visitors.

Other special thematic areas will be the Crafts Centre with Craft LIVE, providing opportunities for a hands-on experience, the Glass and Façade Competence Centre as well as the Glass Art exhibition.

glasstec 2016 will be held at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from 20 to 23 September 2016. Information about the trade fair is available at the following web address: www.glasstec-online.com
