Vitrum owns its spot among the top glass industry trade shows

Date: 16 October 2015
Overall, a total of 18,450 visitors flocked through the gates of Vitrum 2015 – the 19th edition of the international trade show dedicated to machinery, equipment and special products for flat and hollow glass processing – just ended (October 6 – 9) at Fiera Milano Rho.

At the 2015 event, Italy’s appointment with the world of glass reconfirmed its top-ranking international status.Over the four days of the fair it attracted a high caliber of visitors comprised of both domestic (9,032 Italian) and international (9,418 foreign) industry specialists and buyers.

The numbers speak of a show consistent with the previous edition, according to Renata Gaffo, Director of Vitrum: “The recently-concluded edition of Vitrum upheld the same levels as Vitrum 2013 – in terms of number of exhibitors, net exhibit space and even visitors, slightly fewer but of the same magnitude. In recent years the market has produced a kind of ‘natural selection’, favoring those businesses that invested heavily in innovation. Vitrum 2015 drew highly-qualified business contacts to exhibitors’ stands and corroborated signs of a slight market upturn. More and more, Vitrum is becoming known as an extremely technical event focused on the most innovative aspects of the glass processing industry – a specific emphasis that makes it very popular with exhibitors and visitors”.
