I trust that the topics addressed at the conference may stimulate new developments and more in-depth knowledge within the glass industry”.

The synergistic efforts also involve ITA, the Italian Trade Agency that has strengthened its partnership with Vitrum, as confirmed by Alessandro Lamura (Mechanics, Chemistry, Energy and Environment Office): “During the year, ITA was involved in numerous initiatives for Vitrum, a show recognized by the Government and MISE (Ministry of Economic Development) as a worthy recipient of promotional initiatives, on a par with other trade exhibitions. I thank President Bandini for his decision to relocate the ATIV Conference from Parma to Milan because cooperation is our overriding priority. We invite all players in the industry, from Vitrum to Gimav, from ATIV to Assovetro to team up and join similar initiatives. ITA’s mission is to support small and medium enterprises in their activities on foreign markets. Vitrum re-affirms its position as an expo with a strong personality, that managed to maintain high quality standards and propel Italian technology to new highs in the world”.
