A highlight of Vitrum 2019 is the thought-provoking, fact-filled calendar of in-depth Seminars on crucial topics of general and specific interest to glass industry professionals. Four informative, galvanizing events featuring high-profile speakers will offer trade professionals a valuable opportunity to share and compare and get up-to-date on the most cutting-edge technology and also preview possible future scenarios implementing that technology, the various technical standards of reference and the options for safeguarding proprietary company data.
“This year, we envisioned an even more feature-filled series of seminars for Vitrum” remarked Vitrum Director, Laura Biason. “In addition to the well-established ‘What’s hot’, where companies present their most brilliant technologies, we will cover topics like cybersecurity, product compliance and international technical standards.
“We wanted to make participation in the seminars more convenient by setting aside an area for them in pavilion 5, so everyone can make the best use of their visit time, reconciling business with training and information. Participation in the seminars is free and open to all industry professionals, but on-line registration is required”, concluded Biason.
All the seminars will be held in the brand-new Meeting Area in Pavilion 5 (Stand V21-Z30). For information click here. To participate, register using the links indicated.
In honour of what has become a tradition, the powerful “What’s hot in glass processing” series of workshops will take place Wednesday October 2nd at 2.30pm. Bolstered by the enthusiastic feedback from the previous edition, Vitrum 2019 will again host the fertile debate between glass industry professionals and the companies that will introduce their most recent technological solutions.
“The evolution of International Standards for glass processing machinery” seminar will take place on Thursday October 3rd at 10.30am.
A closer look at the delicate question of harmonization of technical standards for glass processing machinery at the European (EN) and international (ISO) levels will offer suggestions about how to implement a systems safety strategy and safeguard information and data to allow for more secure corporate compliance in the various markets.
The “Corporate compliance, with a focus on complex markets such as the USA. Present and future outlook in preventing liabilities related to the commercialization of industrial products” seminar will also take place on Thursday October 3rd, at 2.30pm. It will delve in-depth into the specifics of a particularly complex standards scenario like that in the United States, providing trade professionals with practical tips and strategies, useful for updating their compliance at the commercial and legal levels, to safely take advantage of all the opportunities afforded by the American market.
Friday October 4th at 10.00am the topic will be “The industrial world grapples with ‘virtual defenses’ as the Cybersecurity market and Cybercrime continue to grow”. An especially sensitive subject for businesses – victims of increasingly numerous “virtual” attacks that threaten their technological know-how. The most effective policies will be shared, along with measures to implement and steps to take to safeguard data assets.
