glasstec - the leading international trade fair


glasstec will demonstrate the fact that glass is not just flat but that it also has almost limitless dimensions. The world's leading trade fair for the glass industry, mechanical engineering and glass craftsmanship will be presenting the latest developments from the entire world of glass.

Whether it is ultra-thin glass, display glass as touch-panels, lightweight glass or hollow glassware and packaging glassware: Discover XXL glass in oversized, large-scale formats and find out about the technical possibilities in the field of vehicle and car glass. Be enthused by the high quality designed and refined glass in all conceivable colours, shapes and formats – whether it is printed, cut or milled. Experience how smart glass can change its light translucence and provide protection against the cold and the heat, and the kind of possibilities this is opening up for modern architecture and interior design. Find out about how intelligent, energy-efficient glass façades can help with climate protection, and how energy can be actively gained with glass.
