Glass Performance Days India will be opening its doors on March 19th at 10.00 h.
This international conference aims to present the latest developments in the production and use of glass in construction, facade engineering and solar technology. Solar and glass industry experts, engineers, designers, architects and researchers are invited to participate at the conference.
Combining GPD India with Glasspex 2013 will provide the participants the unique opportunity to attend the conference presentations and then visit an exhibition of world leading technology to see glass in production, processing and products!
GLASSPEX INDIA – International Exhibition for Glass – Production Processing Products – will be held for the third time from 20 to 22 March 2013 in Hall V of the Bombay Convention & Exhibition Centre in Mumbai.
This highly successful exhibition for the glass industry has already become a fixture in the international trade fair arena. At the previous edition in 2011 176 exhibitors from 19 countries presented the latest products and technologies in glass production, finishing and applications to over 4,000 international trade visitors.
The participating exhibitors – including renowned companies such as Bottero, DSF Refractories, Emhart Glass, Grenzebach, Hindustan National Glass, Saint-Gobain SEFPRO, Shamvik Glasstech, Bassra Machine Tools, Den Breven, CUMI, IAG, Gujarat Borosil, K-bond, Techno Trade Links and Zippe Industrieanlagen – unanimously praised the excellent organisation of the event by Messe Düsseldorf India and the high calibre of visitors that made GLASSPEX INDIA an outstanding communication platform for exchange among experts from the glass fraternity.
The event will also follow on from this success because India is among the world’s fastest growing markets and a highly attractive economic region, especially for the glass industry. Rising population figures on the subcontinent, a higher standard of living and the associated demand for consumer goods have generated rising demand in the construction sector, the automotive industry as well as in the packaging, electrical and pharmaceutical industries – areas where glass plays a prominent role as a raw material.
At GLASSPEX INDIA exhibitors can obtain selected exposure to the Indian market and make new business contacts – banking on Messe Düsseldorf (as the organiser of the world’s most important glass trade fair glasstec). The AIGMF (All India Glass Manufacturers’ Federation) and VDMA e.V. (Association of German Machinery and Plant Manufacturers) provide their support as strong cooperation partners.
The 10th International Glass Technology Conference of the AIGMF titled “Managing Sustainable Growth” will be held parallel to GLASSPEX INDIA in 2013. This renowned conference provides an ideal complement for to the content of the trade fair thereby making it even more attractive to visitors.
The 3rd Glass Performance Days India (GPD), where current trends on the Indian glass market as well as glass architecture and solar technology are discussed, will round off the wide range of side events for GLASSPEX INDIA.
