The Covid 19 pandemic also has a massive impact on the construction and fair industry. Because the worldwide development of travel restrictions is not foreseeable, we have decided to offer an online platform in 2020, on which current topics of the glass industry will be discussed. The Glasstech Asia Online Conference 2020 will be held for the first time.
Following the acquisition of Glasstech Asia / Fenestration Asia by Messe München, the leading trade fair for glass production, processing and machinery in the ASEAN region is to be expanded even further. The premiere of Glasstech Asia / Fenestration Asia – powered by BAU and BAU China must now be postponed by one year due to the Covid-19 pandemic. “It is tremendously important to us to offer a secure platform for all participants in the exhibition. Due to the current situation we cannot guarantee a Glasstech Asia / Fenestration Asia – powered by BAU and BAU China that meets our and our customers requirements. In the meantime, we will continue to develop and digitally complement the fair.” explains Dr. Reinhard Pfeiffer, Deputy Managing Director of Messe München.
How things will continue has already been decided. “First of all, we are planning an online conference, the Glasstech Asia Online Conference, which will be held on 17 November 2020. Thus, despite the difficult situation, we are providing a platform for the exchange of the latest trends and innovations in the industry. Next year, Glasstech Asia / Fenestration Asia – powered by BAU and BAU China will then be held for the first time under the direction of MMI Asia and Messe München. We are looking forward to an even higher quality trade fair with a new international supporting programme,” adds Michael Wilton, General Manager of MMI Asia. The trade fair will act as an important catalyst for a successful time after the crisis and help the industry to emerge stronger from the current exceptional situation.
