Glasspex India, International Exhibition for Glass Production, Processing and Products, offers international companies the ideal framework for a very specific presentation to the Indian glass market. To take advantage of the opportunities and meet the requirements and new challenges of the market, Messe Dsseldorf GmbH, organizer of Glasspex India, has entered into a cooperation with Glass Performance Days (GPD) a conference for glass specialists. The two leading events for the Indian glass industry will be held consecutively at the Bombay Exhibition Centre: GPD India will be held 11-12 January 2011, whereas Glasspex India will take place 12-14 January 2011. Holding the exhibition and conference at the same place means that trade visitors can benefit from valuable synergies and time savings. Seeing the latest products and technologies offered by international exhibitors in Glasspex India and sharing ideas and trends during GPD is an opportunity for visitors to expand their professional horizons, to ensure their investment decisions and to build effective networks. The special focus of the 2nd GPD India will be on architecture, flat glass and solar technology. The premiere of Glasspex India in December 2009 had 139 exhibitors from more than 20 different countries, and 3,200 trade visitors. Glasspex India is a satellite show of glasstec in Dsseldorf/Germany, and is organized by Messe Dsseldorf together with Messe Dsseldorf India, and supported by associations such as AIGMF (All India Glass Manufacturers“ Federation) and VDMA (German Engineering Federation). GPD is an independent forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry, with a history stretching back over two decades. The international sessions have spread from their origin in Finland to China, South America and India. The main topics of the conference in Mumbai will be adjusted to the needs and new challenges of the Indian market, covering the latest trends in the usage of glass in architecture, and how to improve the profitability of flat glass companies. Special attention is dedicated to energy-efficiency issues in solar and glass technology. Two complementary side events will also take place during Glasspex India : the AIGMF, All India Glass Manufacturers“ Federation, will stage the 9th edition of its international conference on Managing Sustainable Growth concurrently with the show. Moreover, Messe Dsseldorf, in conjunction with Solarpraxis AG, will organize the 1st Solar Industry Summit India: Application meets Production – How to use and produce PV in India. Last but not least, the 2nd edition of the special show glass technology live goes India will also have solar technology as a main subject, giving an insight into the future of glass and solar technology.
