glasstec 2020 | Present your know-how at the glasstec conference


Experts see five essential, global challenges for the future. Dealing with these challenges is also crucial for further development in the areas of glass production, glass processing and finishing, and glass products and applications. For the first time at glasstec 2020 we are calling on you as an exhibitor to take part in the central discussion by making a speech: How can glass make a sustainable contribution to mastering these future challenges?

The challenges:


  • CO2 reductions in glass manufacturing and processing
  • Legal provisions as innovation drivers through new standards
  • Reduced emissions by new manufacturing processes


  • New living and working concepts for a growing population
  • Connectivity assisted by novel glass developments
  • Which glass products are needed by society for tomorrow’s mobility?


  • Tomorrow’s skilled labour: availability, training and continuous education, health and safety at the workplace
  • Alternative raw materials and circular economy
  • Decarbonisation and alternative sources of energy

Value Added:

  • Rethinking added value: “From profit to planet to people”
  • Profitability of investment
  • Added value through new glass products


  • Safety, comfort, health with glass
  • Use of new glass products at work and at home, incl. functionality and comfort

Is your company already involved in these areas? How is your company preparing for the future situation or which products are aimed at solving these problems and expectations? At the glasstec conference with its open lecture stage you will have the opportunity to present your solutions and developments. Send us your proposal if your contribution addresses at least two of the challenges mentioned above. A jury of experts will select the most exciting and innovative contributions.

The closing date for entries is 29 February 2020.

Kind regards,

The glasstec team
