Vitrum, the international event that brings thousands of foreign visitors to Milan, northern Italy, has announced the dates for the next edition. Taking place 26-29 October 2011 at the Fiera Milano complex in Rho, expectations for the fair are high on the results obtained from the last edition: foreign visitors (from more than 100 countries) increased significantly compared to 2007 (+3.68%). Vitrum will also include the latest technological innovations in flat glass applications: sophisticated technology companies in the sector engineered for the most traditional (i.e. industrial, architectural and furniture) and innovative applications, such as solar power systems. The entire Vitrum Hollow Glass section will be dedicated to tableware, bottles, speciality glass for pharmaceutical/technical applications and state-of-the-art products designed to meet high safety and sanitation standards. Energy-saving and renewable energy technology will be featured in the Vitrum Energy section, while Vitrum Lab, the art lab project launched in 2009, and sponsored by the Lombardy Regional Authority – Education, Training and Labour Department – as well as the Provincial Authority of Milan, will also continue to promote glass related art, crafts and culture. Elementary school children will once more be invited to attend the Fair, participate in creative workshops, and watch amazing live performances by Master Glassblowers from Murano. During glasstec 2010, updates on Vitrum 2011 will be available at the GIMAV stand: Hall 16, stand D 36.
