9th International Exhibition

History of Event

Autumn 2001 saw the first ever Glass Expo International Specialized Exhibition organized by the Glass Association of Russia. The Event attracted 78 attendees coming from four countries. It is important to note that Russia was facing hardships at the moment: by this time many plants and enterprises had lost their once strong relations with end consumers. That is the main reason why the Exhibition was crowned with big success. In an instant it became a solid platform for demand and supply behaviors in the global glass industry. So, the companies, willing to market their products in Russia and CIS countries, acquired a true guiding star.

The major goal of the pilot exhibition was attained. Producers and consumers were offered ample and attractive opportunities to enter into and develop good partnership agreements with due apprehension of the leading role of this Forum in the CIS glass market.

It is vital to note that Glass Expo was highly recognized by a number of Ministries and Federal Non-For-Profit Organizations.

The Russian exponents and participants coming from the CIS countries gained confidence in the high economic feedback of the Event. Since the year 2003 the number of Russian and CIS attendees has kept exceeding the number of attendees from the global arena. This fact demonstrates that Glass Expo is becoming increasingly popular in the national market.
