glasstec VIRTUAL – The New Online Format connects the Sector and enables Virtual Networking

September 2, 2020 Events2

The alternative dates for glasstec have already been established. From 15 to 18 June 2021 the global No. 1 trade fair will again become the innovation and information platform for the entire glass industry. The exhibitors who have already registered can use an entirely new digital service for glasstec in autumn this year. glasstec VIRTUAL connects the sector and offers many new features for both exhibitors and visitors.

By launching glasstec VIRTUAL from 20 to 22 October as a leading digital event, Messe Düsseldorf extends its portfolio of services. The new format consists of the three segments Exhibition Space, Networking Plaza and Conference Area. This allows exhibitors to maintain and extend their business relations on the market. Additional tools such as virtual product presentations and new interactive options make it possible to address target groups in an optimised way and generate potential leads.

“Save the October dates in your agenda for glasstec VIRTUAL and use this opportunity to stay connected with the international glass industry,” says Birgit Horn, Director glasstec.

The three Segments of glasstec VIRTUAL

Exhibition Space

The Exhibitor Showroom offers many additional new features to attract potential customers’ attention as early as eight months before glasstec. Effective immediately, product videos can be uploaded and web sessions offered. You can make contact with the participants either interactively via the chat option during the event or after the event directly and conveniently using the Matchmaking Tool. Furthermore, the exhibitor receives the contact details of all registered participants. After the event the exhibitors’ presentations will be made available to the glasstec community for further reference. The Showroom also brings the option of continued exposure with other advertising and communication materials alongside product information and data entries.

Networking Plaza

The new Matchmaking Tool allows you to establish direct contact with potentially interested parties by requesting special fields of interest and extensive filter functions. After making an appointment, personal conversations can be held via audio or video calls in a virtual room.

Conference Area

Accompanying the event from 20 to 22 October glasstec VIRTUAL will offer free expert lectures from the glasstec conference with a reference to globally trending themes. Participants will be able to interact with speakers and follow the talks from all over the world. The detailed programme and information for participation will be published in September. In addition, the trade journal Glass Worldwide will organise two panel discussions. The sessions will address the current, global market situation in the flat and container glass industries.

Access to these extra ranges of glasstec VIRTUAL is automatically available to all exhibitors registered for the trade fair next year. For visitors, participation in glasstec VIRTUAL is free of charge.
