For years the glass technology live show has been the central hub and the most important source of inspiration for the international glass industry. As a forum for state-of-the-art solutions and a performance showcase for future glass applications, this special show is one of glasstec‘s main highlights. It provides inspiration for functionality and aesthetics.


Four “glass cubes” will present the latest solutions from the following areas:

Interactive Façades/
Display Glass

Energy and Performance

Structural Glass: solid glass/
thin glass

New Technologies

New concept - new management:
The innovation show under the new management of Prof. Dr.-Ing. (Doctor of Engineering) Ulrich Knaack from the Technical University of Darmstadt presents pioneering exhibits from the areas of technology, production and glass application. The range of topics is cross-sectoral, ranging from the automotive to consumer sectors, from construction to interiors.

Real innovations: 
More than 70 % of the exhibits are initial releases, projects from university research, experimental concepts or award-winning pieces from student competitions. The future-oriented portfolio will be rounded off with theme-specific “Meet the Expert” sessions as well as a new conference concept linked to the exhibition.
