Glassman Events are pleased to announce the return to Asia with the launch of a new show in Seoul, South Korea. It is the ﬁrst time the combined exhibition and conference has been held in this fascinating country. It follows the success of two previous Glassman events in Bangkok and Jakarta in 2018 and 2019.
South Korea offers ample opportunities for professionals and has an established glass industry. The country is a hotbed of innovation and is home to some of the world’s most recognised brands such as Samsung, Hyundai and LG Electronics – all of which use glass in their products. Domestic glassmakers include Samkwang Glass, Kumbi Corporation, Techpack Solutions and KC Glass and Material.
The Glassman event brings together glassmakers with leading technology suppliers. The two-day show will include a conference that will focus on the latest trends, issues and opportunities in the glassmaking industry. Recent attendees at Glassman shows have included glassmakers such as O-I, Ardagh, Verallia as well as their customers such as Heineken, Coca- Cola and Bacardi.
“I will recommend for my friends and colleagues to attend Glassman Asia, because it’s not only an exhibition, it’s the centre of glass innovation”
