glasstec Virtual: Exhibitor Web Sessions, Conference and Matchmaking
October 13, 2020
Organizers of glasstec announced glasstec Virtual, a new digital networking platform for the international glass industry, set to run Oct. 20-22. During that time, the glasstec Virtual Showroom will become the most important point of contact for potential customers and decision-makers from the glass sector, according to glasstec officials. Over 750 exhibitors will be presented there with their products, solutions and applications.
“The exhibitor profiles have long existed as a digital add-on service for our exhibitors. But particularly now, when we cannot meet personally, this digital point of contact gains new importance. If I want to serve customers competently, I need an attractive and informative online appearance. By extending these add-on features and services in the Exhibitor Showroom we have further adapted the spectrum of presentation options to the needs of our customers,” says Birgit Horn, project director glasstec.
One highlight will be the exhibitors’ live web sessions. The interactive format permits the presentation of products and innovations but also personal exchange with customers—independent of the location and in real time. View an overview of all web sessions.
The page will be filled gradually and will consist of a comprehensive portfolio on all three days when glasstec Virtual starts on Oct. 20. After successful registration for the selected web session, participants will receive a link for the relevant sessions by e-mail along with the time and date. Zoom conference software will be used for streaming the web sessions.
Matchmaking at the Networking Plaza
The Matchmaking Tool is ideal when it comes to remaining in close contact during and after glasstec Virtual. By enquiring about specific areas of interest and extensive filter functions it provides direct contact with potential customers and partners. After making an appointment, personal conversations between exhibitors and customers can take place in a virtual room either by audio or video.
glasstec Conference Area
During the event, all participants at glasstec VIRTUAL will have free access to the three-day conference agenda, with expert lectures from industry and science addressing globally trending themes such as climate protection, resource efficiency, urbanization, value added and happiness.
The glasstec conference will be structured according to the segments of the leading global trade fair glasstec: glass production, processing and finishing as well as glass products and applications. The conference language will be English with German translation.
During the conference, the international expert audience will be able to learn about the latest developments and trends in the global glass industry and to interact with the speakers live from anywhere in the world. The first two conference days are rounded off by the “Glass Association Summit,” organized by the trade magazine Glass Worldwide.
