“This is year zero for us – stated Dino Zandonella Necca, President of Vitrum – we expended all of our efforts in this year’s edition in terms of synergistic activities, involvement and promotional initiatives that already paid off in Murano, in June, with the organization of the first International Convention of Glass Associations. Today Vitrum is officially embarking on a new path marked by global activities to put our industry on the world map and strengthen its strategic, all-round importance”.

“Vitrum 2017 is traditionally an eagerly-anticipated event - remarks Laura Biason, Vitrum Director – and ranks among the leading international glass shows. The value of the machinery on display this year is in excess of €12 million, tangible proof of the importance attached by both Italian and overseas companies to our exhibition”.
