Europe’s largest container glass manufacturers attend the Glassman Europe events, with European manufacturers joined by visitors from glassmaking facilities around Europe.
The Turkish glass industry is currently enjoying an unprecedented surge in demand. Thanks to its strategic geographic location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia and its proximity to the Middle East and Africa as well as its access to raw materials Turkish glass is in demand like never before.
Glassman events are world leading exhibitions and conferences dedicated to the hollow and container glass manufacturing industries.
Providing an excellent opportunity to network, meet and do business with key manufacturing industry figures involved with all aspects of the design, process and production of hollow and container glass.
This will be 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.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Glassman Latin America in March. It was amazing to see so many members of the glass industry at the CINTERMEX in Monterrey.
We look forward to seeing in in Mexico City in 2024 for another fantastic Glassman Latin America.
