glasstec Virtual Kicks Off with the Latest in Products and Education

glasstec Virtual kicks off today. Like many trade shows and industry events, this year’s incarnation has moved online―the in-person event is slated to return in June of 2021 in its traditional venue in Düsseldorf, Germany. glasstec Virtual runs Oct. 20-22, and registration is open now.

The online platform features three main parts; a conference area with educational events, exhibition pages for each exhibitor, and a matchmaking platform. The matchmaking tool facilitates exhibitors’ and visitors’ networking connections using an algorithm based on the individual’s interests.

The exhibition space features virtual exhibitor booths complete with product info, demo videos and news. The space also features interactive web sessions with leading companies. Here are a few to check out. Sessions are available on-demand with registration.
