Glass-Tech 2011

April 15-17 2011, Targi Kielce, Poland

4th International Fair Of Glass And Ceramics Production, Processing And Technology

This fair is a unique event of this kind on the Polish market. The 2010 exhibition was visited by 20,000 people.

Glass has been known to humankind from time immemorial. Cultures living near volcanoes had access to glass available in the form of a natural resource, which came in a vast array of kinds and colours. The method of making thin and flat window panes was refined in the 14th century in Normandy, while the modern glass pressing processes were developed and used for cost-effective mass production in the United States in the 19th century.

Since then, this material has practically become irreplaceable, with demand for glass products continually being on the increase. Architectural glass, optical glass, soda-lime glass, Jena glass, hardened, armoured, utility glass, ceramic and artistic, to name just a few.

The exhibition in the halls of the Targi Kielce company encompassed almost all the products of glass and ceramics. Visitors had an opportunity to become acquainted with the latest ceramic and glass production technologies.

In 2010 was held grand glass and ceramics market, where visitors were shown the latest products offered by manufacturers of objects used in everyday life as well as works of art.

Products and services exhibited at the 3rd International Fair of Glass and Ceramics Production, Processing and Technology are aimed at construction companies, architects, glass companies, developers, furniture manufacturers, glassworks, glass and ceramics producers, and at other representatives of the glass industry. In fact, taking a tour of the exhibition at Targi Kielce is a must for all of them. However, our invitation to visit the exhibition is extended not only to professionals. Everyone will be enchanted with the exhibited consumer goods and works of art.

Vitrum 2011


October 26-29 2011, Rho, Porta Ovest, Milan

International Trade Fair For Machinery, Equipment And Systems For The Processing Of Flat, And Hollow Glass; Glass And Finished Products For The Industry

VITRUM, the leading international glass manufacturing trade event held in Italy, continues to find ways to present cutting edge techniques and technologies alongside a glimpse into the illustrious past. The tradition of glass manufacturing originated and matured in the small workshops of artisans in ancient Rome or during the time of the Doges in the Venetian Republic. Those crowded, smoke-filled shops of the past have given way to spacious, almost sterile, modern industrial facilities, where new techniques are applied to ideas that have their heritage in the distant past.

It was just such an imaginary journey along the glass trade routes that brought the “Glass Relic” to Vitrum in 1995. Priceless archeological evidence was recovered from the Adriatic Sea, showing how, as early as the 16th century, glass had been cast into crude blocks in the countries where the raw materials were abundant, and traveled by sea to regions where it was transformed into elegant, colorful objects. Successive Vitrum events -- like “Glass Tales” --featured the Byzantine anchor by Pellestrina, which emerged miraculously intact from the floor of the Venice’s lagoon, alongside other precious finds from digs carried out in Venice. Bottles, goblets, multicolored fragments from window panes and lamps -- “fragile” and, at the same time, durable testimony to the skills and artistic elegance of the master glass craftsmen who did their utmost to satisfy the demands of European aristocracy.Yes, Vitrum is also an example of how the modern industrial world can take on the noble challenge of imparting a refined cultural message.

Thus, the show presents itself not only as the business appointment of the year but also as the ideal venue where history, tradition, evolution and technological innovation intersect and flow into another in a virtual stream of time. This too, is the magic of glass. 

Vitrum featured the new “Vitrum Energy” section which, together with VHG created in 2007, are designed to give a specific exhibition identity to twoimportant sectors: hollow glass processing and production, and the new technologies and applications of glass for energy production from renewable sources.
