Salon glasstec New Date 15.-18.June 2021

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.

glasstec sent out clear signals in an ambivalent economic climate. This was the general tone expressed by the large majority of the trade visitors. Far more than half these specialists assess the future economic climate in the sector as positive. The response from exhibitors at the world’s most important trade fair in the glass sector also underline this good mood.

Visitors from the fields of mechanical engineering, industry, skilled trades, architects/(façade) planners as well as the solar sector all gave glasstec a ‘good report’. Alongside the positive mood for the future their ratings in terms of achieving visiting goals and the quality of the trade fair range were excellent. Both these areas scored significantly over 90%. With that result glasstec underlines its status as the world’s leading trade fair with a constantly high number of international visitors accounting for well over half of the audience.

Successful Special Shows
The comprehensive supporting programme at glasstec went down well with visitors. More specifically the special show “glass technology live” once again attracted a great deal of interest. Under the heading “Innovative Glass Functions” Prof. Stefan Behling and his team from Stuttgart University’s Institute of Construction Design (Institut für Baukonstruktion) caused a stir with numerous exciting exhibits – the practical products of the near and distant future. These for instance included a window incorporated into glazing without any visible frame construction, bent but still stable glass, organic, building-integrated photovoltaics as well as large-format façade elements. In combination with the neighbouring “Competence Center Glass, Window, Facade”, which bundled know-how from various associations, these façade mock-ups formed the “Facade Center”. The “glass technology live” show was accompanied on all days of the fair by a free symposium on a variety of topics attended by numerous visitors.

The range of special shows was complemented by the Skilled Trades Center “Zentrum Handwerk” – impressively demonstrating at its glass house the glass solutions available from the skilled trades for and in the house – and by the “glass art” exhibition. Specially designed for auto glass specialists was the “Autoglass Arena” with its international auto glass contest and the German championship plus its comprehensive, specialist plenary meeting.
