Conference Area

The “‘Conference Area” will offer 20 expert lectures from industry and science with a reference to globally trending themes. During the Conference, the international trade audience will get information online about the latest developments and trends in the glass industry worldwide and to interact with the speakers to experience the contributions from all over the globe. The first two conference days will be rounded off by the “Glass Association Summit” organized by trade journal “glass worldwide.” Review the Conference Area.


Networking forms an essential part of any trade fair―whether in a physical or virtual format. At glasstec Virtual this will be made possible by the Matchmaking Tool. Via the Networking Plaza visitors and exhibitors will be able to make and maintain contacts during and also after the event. By enquiring about special areas of interest and extensive filter functions, new and existing contacts can be identified and established quickly. Once an appointment has been scheduled, personal discussions between exhibitors and customers can be conducted in a virtual room via audio or video.
