The effects of the Coronavirus have now also impacted glasstec 2020, which will be postponed to 15 to 18 June 2021. In view of the continued uncertainties in terms of travel restrictions and quarantine provisions in the core target markets Messe Düsseldorf has opted in favour of these new dates in close coordination with the trade fair’s advisory board and all partners involved.
The world’s No.1 trade fair for the glass industry was originally planned to take place from 20 to 23 October. Messe Düsseldorf is already busy cooperating with the associations to offer digital service formats for 2020 with the aim of bringing customers and exhibitors together and digitally place the information and ranges available at glasstec at the disposal of interested trade visitors on the original trade fair dates. Further details will follow shortly.
Here you can find an overview of the most important questions and answers:
How do you ensure the safety of exhibitors and visitors?
Messe Düsseldorf takes the concerns of its exhibitors and visitors very seriously. As usual, a high level of hygiene and good medical care is provided at the Düsseldorf exhibition centre. All information on safety and hygiene measures at glasstec can be found here.
What happens with bookings already made for flight and train tickets, hotel accommodation etc.?
We understand the difficult situation resulting from the postponement. Please contact the respective provider to clarify open questions and find solutions. We are unable to provide information on contracts between customers and third-party providers, as these have not been entered into with Messe Düsseldorf.
However, Messe Düsseldorf and the City of Düsseldorf with its subsidiary Düsseldorf Tourismus are in constant contact with the hotel industry in Düsseldorf and the region and its umbrella organisation DEHOGA (German Hotel and Restaurant Association).
