Its wide-ranging ancillary programme includes special shows and conferences, providing added value for all visitors. The main highlight of the trade fair will be the special show Glass Technology Live in Hall 11. As before, it will be organised by Prof. Stefan Behling and his team from the Institute of Building Construction at the University of Stuttgart.

The show will feature spectacular exhibits, innovative products and pioneering solutions. This time the focus will be above all on free-form, ultra-thin and solid glass as well as on glass used for information purposes. Again, participation in any of the trade-fair symposia will be free of charge for visitors.

Other special thematic areas will be the Crafts Centre with Craft LIVE, providing opportunities for a hands-on experience, the Façade Centre with the Glass and Façade Competence Centre, the Glass Art exhibition and the “Autoglass Arena” with the latest trends and an automotive glazing competition.

The conference programme at glasstec 2016 will again consist of Engineered Transparency, a conference on structural glass, with presentations by star architects, as well as the Solar Meets Glass conference with topics on the interface between the glass and solar industries.
