Stepping Stone For Innovators In Glass Industry
Leading international trade fair for the glass industry will open its doors to innovative start-ups at the Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre from Oct 22-25, 2024.
The year 2022 saw 928 exhibitors from 47 countries and 29,278 visitors from 121 countries getting together at glasstec. This means glasstec also provides young international companies with a unique platform to showcase their ideas to a high-calibre trade audience from the world of glass.
The ‘Start-up Zone’ at glasstec is a specifically designed area that targets up-and-coming and innovative firms.
The hallmarks of glasstec include its participants’ high propensity to invest and the high percentage of decision-makers. This is the chance for start-ups to present themselves internationally, make valuable contacts and leverage networking and investment opportunities.
Jürgen Huber, Managing Director of start-up BISS.ID GmbH, an innovative, digital platform for the construction industry, looks to the forthcoming glasstec with high expectations: “We look forward to participating in glasstec in Düsseldorf again to be able to present our digital solutions built for glass supplies from producers to customers and back.”
“For us as a young company the ‘Start-up Zone’ provides an outstanding platform for making contacts and having quality conversations. As early as 2022 we already used the opportunity and were more than thrilled with the high-potential visitors as well as the international flair of the trade fair,” Huber said
For EUR 4,500, the ‘Startup Zone’ offers its exhibitors an extensive service package in addition to the exhibition space. It includes integration in the communication and marketing activities for the ‘Start-up Zone’, which means communication with the trade press as well as promotion of the ‘Start-up Zone’ on the glasstec website and in dedicated visitor mailings, for example.
In addition, the service package includes an area for showcasing the exhibits, admission ticket vouchers, power supply and web access.
