Glasstec 2008 Exhibitor Statements

How the exhibitors judged the trade fair so far and if they were satisfied with their trade show appearance - we strolled through the halls and asked them.

Dieter Winkler, Solarwatt

Engineer Dieter Winkler is impressed by the variety at glasstec. He is especially pleased with the special show, glass technology live, on the solar topic. "In my opinion, solar is currently still a niche, but a very important one, and I welcome the focus on it here."

Markus Gehring, Schott Advanced Materials

Markus Gehring of Schott Advanced Materials appreciates the exceedingly high quality of visitors at glasstec. "We have already had the pleasure of greeting numerous international visitors at our booth." In addition, the fact that various renowned companies are found among the exhibitors "substantially enriches the fair."

Dirk Schröder, Schollglas

"We perceived glasstec 2008 as being a totally positive experience," says Dirk Schröder of Schollglas. "Our booth was constantly frequented, especially by experts." Which is a good thing since the sales manager sees public relations with clients as being of priority at an event like the glass trade fair.

Jürgen Wallbach, PPG Industries

The diversity of exhibiting companies is a pleasant surprise for Jürgen Wallbach of PPG Industries: "Here you find machine manufacturers and glass producers, as well as decorators and craftsmen." He doesn't have much time to explore them, however. "We are so busy that I have already handed out all of my business cards, and I haven't really found any time to see anything at the fair."

Iris Minten, Bystronic

Bystronic is a co-exhibitor at the special show, glass technology live. Not only the solar topic is important to the company, but also glass and energy in general. "For the first time, we are showing an eco-lounge and are considering ways of saving energy with our machines," explains PR manager Iris Minten, "and visitors respond very positively to this."

Manfred Lesiak, Lisec

“For us glasstec this year was more successful than ever. It has fully lived up to its reputation of being the glass sector’s foremost trade fair throughout the world and proved to be a meeting point for visitors from around the globe. Many first-time customers signed important contracts on site where we installed a fully networked, automatic manufacturing unit at the stand,” says Manfred Lesiak, Manager Marketing & Event at Lisec.
