The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) enjoyed a busy and productive exhibition at glasstec Dusseldorf, meeting with hundreds of industry contacts during the four day trade show.
glasstec provided the platform for roughly 200 guests (including Members, Visitors, non-members and media) to be offered information and technical guidance, as well as corporate hospitality on the GGF stand.
John Agnew, GGF President, said: “It was a pleasure to be part of the GGF team at glasstec. It is a show that attracts all the major players in the glass industry and the GGF presence and engagement at this event is great for raising the Federation’s profile.”
Steve Rice, GGF Director of Technical Affairs (pictured), added: “Glasstec proved a great success. It was great to meet so many GGF Members and thanks to all those who visited us during the show.
“It was also encouraging to have many companies asking about how they could join, work with or use the GGF technical services.”
Glasstec celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, cementing its position as the leading trade fair and premiere platform for the international glass sector.
From 23 – 26 October, over 42,000 visitors from more than 120 countries descended on Düsseldorf to witness first-hand the innovative power of the industry – 1,280 exhibitors from 50 countries showcased their product highlights in nine halls.
With a multi-conference programme at the show, the special show glass technology live once again proved the central point of contact for all glasstec visitors, presenting itself with a fresh new look for the anniversary event.
By extending the team of conceptual partners to include not one but four technical universities, the organisers placed more of a focus on scientific glass research that put exciting glass products and applications on display.
The focal themes staged by glass technology live included interactive façades and display glass, energy and performance, structural glass (solid glass, thin glass and hollow glass) as well as new technologies.
Glasstec is already looking ahead to the 2020 show, whilst the GGF is working with the organisers to increase the UK presence at the world’s largest trade fair for the glass industry.
