Yesterday, October 6th, was the third day for Vitrum, Italy's international trade show dedicated to machinery, products and accessories for Flat and Hollow glass.

The 20th edition of Vitrum is continuing on a high note. Visitors and exhibitors are actively involved and satisfied with the show's high quality and technological level, complemented by a host of side events, such as meetings and seminars for professionals.

Vitrum has further substantiated its educational commitment to the glass industry with today's seminar, addressed at the Italian market, entitled "The new laws and standards for glass products in building and construction”, which received accreditation for 3 CFP (certificate of professional education) credits from the Order of Engineers of Milan in light of its professional educational contents and method of implementation. Approximately one hundred professionals and entrepreneurs participated in the Sala Gemini at the Stella Polare Service Center in the Fiera Milano Rho exhibition district.

Organized by Assovetro, CSI Spa, Gimav, the Order of Engineers and the Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro (under the aegis of the Italian Trade Agency and Vitrum), the seminar featured high-caliber presentations.

The work session was opened by Mario Boschi (Assovetro) who provided details about national standards. Ennio Mognato, Head of the Laboratory for Flat Glass in Building at the Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro illustrated international rules and regulations in detail. The session was closed by Marco Scanagatta, in charge of voluntary and mandatory product certification for CSI Spa (Certification Institute and Test Lab), with a special focus on voluntary certification for product compliance.

As stated by Laura Biason, Director of Vitrum: "We are extremely satisfied with the results of this first-ever cooperation between Vitrum, the Order of Engineers, Assovetro, CSI Spa, Gimav and the Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, a high-caliber team that allowed us  to highlight the endless applications of glass in the building and construction Industry. This initiative allowed us to bring the design world to our trade show, an invaluable opportunity for designers to experience first-hand the newest and freshest possibilities offered by the machinery on display. Let's not forget that glass is the material of choice for new architectural works in Italy and abroad. Events, such as the one we organized today, that focus on training and continuing education, foster in-the-field knowledge and allow designers, architects, and trade professionals to discover what the glass processing industry is capable of offering today ".

Vitrum, the Italian trade show dedicated to the glass world, again scored very positive attendance results today, 8.9%.
