This will make the home of the global No. 1 trade fair for the entire glass sector also a centre of attraction for a major part of this industry in the years in-between glasstec. Decorative glass finishing is also a dynamic exhibition segment at glasstec reflecting the great potential of this field.”
Dave Fordham, Publishing & Events Director, Chameleon Business Media (Glass Worldwide) explains: "As co-organisers of GlassPrint with ESMA, we are very pleased that the 2011 event will be powered by glasstec. In addition to our other sponsors, the support of a major organisation like Messe Düsseldorf will greatly enhance GlassPrint and help provide even better value to the global glassmakers, decorators and suppliers that will be in attendance."
