Vitrum 2015 on-line visitor registration opens

Registration is now open for the 19th Biennial International Exhibition of Machinery, Equipment and Special Products for Flat and Hollow Glass Processing, to be held in Milan on 6-9 October 2015.

Vitrum is the perfect opportunity to source the main innovations from the five continents in technologies applied to industrial glass, glass for the building industry, furniture and the home, for the pharmaceutical and automotive industry, with a special focus on energy costs and savings in production.

2015 is a special year for the exhibition with a full program of special events planned for the four days.

Vitrum 2015 will be the stage for GLASS. THE GREAT UNEXPECTED, a largescale exhibition of the past, present and future of a material that has left its mark on the history of humanity, featuring Glass in history and design, Glass as a key player in architecture, Glass and the new technologies – for a broad overview of the finest glass production through history, high technology and innovative drive. Visitors will be able to view the results of experiments by students from the Politecnico di Milano (Polytechnic University of Milan) and the Freiburg University of Applied Science and Arts in a workshop promoted by Vitrum at the two universities: the concepts and prototypes developed by the young designers showing how glass can be transformed into new-concept products or tools will be on display.

Thursday 8 October will be dedicated to technological and production innovation in flat and hollow glass, with the Italian Glass Experts Association (A.T.I.V.) organizing its 30th Annual Conference 2015 in partnership with Vitrum during the exhibition.

Special attention will be given to hollow glass at the 19th Vitrum with a group exhibition dedicated to this sector. Some of the leading Gimav companies will have a special area to display the excellence of Italian hollow glass production and processing with a complete range of offerings: tableware, bottles, special glass for pharmaceutical use, and containers.
