Here you can have hands on experience

The "Crafts Centre" offers many customised services, especially for the glass processing trade. Discover new products and applications that allow you to grow your business and increase your sales. Your central contact is the stand of the Federal Association of the Glazier Trade in Hall 9 with the Glass Finishing Arena that offers numerous lectures on new processing techniques. Also in Hall 9, the special show "Crafts Live" presents the topic of "Measuring and Testing of Glass". You can find out which requirements, workflows and liability issues are associated with the topic of glass stability at various practice-oriented stations and a demonstration area.
