The 25th glasstec, the International Trade Fair for Glass Production, Processing and Products, will celebrate its special anniversary with high exhibitor participation and new ancillary program events, say organizers. Four months before the start of the event, registrations for exhibition space are already exceeding the total of the 2016 staging, approaching the record figures of 2008, according to officials.

“All leading international companies in the industry have confirmed their participation in glasstec 2018. The visitors and exhibitors will experience an anniversary with many great innovations,” says Birgit Horn, director of glasstec. The organizers are expecting more than 1,200 exhibitors from over 50 countries to participate in glasstec from Oct. 23 – 26, 2018 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany.

The ancillary program will center around a special exhibition,"glass technology live," in Hall 11. In 2018 it will be organized for the first time by a network of universities – the Technical Universities of Darmstadt, Delft, Dresden and Dortmund – with a presentation of the hub@glasstec. The range of topics will span all industries, covering applications and solutions from the following areas:

  • Interactive façades and display glass
