Live trade fair experience, knowledge transfer and a cross-industry exchange at the highest international level – this is what glasstec will offer with its ancillary program this year. Trade fair highlights will include the glasstec conference, the International Architecture Congress and the innovation show ‘glass technology live’.
The glasstec ancillary program
The glasstec conference in Hall 11 combines the industrial know-how from theory and practice within the context of the five global trend topics (Climate Protection, Resource Efficiency, Urbanisation, Sustainable Value Added and Well-Being). Every day, glasstec 2022 visitors can get information about the latest developments and trends in the lectures on glass production, glass processing and finishing as well as glass products and applications. The glasstec conference agenda at a glance:
- Tuesday 20 September – Glass Processing and Finishing
Resource-saving production and digital solutions
- Wednesday 21 September – Glass Production I
On the path towards climate neutrality
- Thursday, 22 September – Glass Products & Applications I
New glass products and trends
- Friday, 23 September – Glass Products and Applications II
Solar glass and new applications with glass
This comprehensive conference line-up will be enhanced by additional lectures presented in the glasstec conference area, including presentations by the VDMA on machine communication, by EuroWindoor on the topics of energy efficiency and the use of daylight as well as the “Glassinar” with keynotes on glass in architecture and construction. See the complete programme of the glasstec conference here.
Also forming an integral part of the ancillary program will be the International Architecture Congress, which is held for the first time in cooperation with Germany’s leading architectural trade journal ‘Detail’ and the North Rhine-Westphalian Chamber of Architects. Click here for the Programme.
NEXT IN GLASS – glass technology live: The innovation show with a view to future glass applications
The innovation show glass technology live (gtl) will again be organised by the university network consisting of the four Technical Universities of Darmstadt, Delft, Dortmund and Dresden. Students will amaze visitors with their mock-ups and innovative glass structures. glass technology live videos provide exclusive insights and details about glass technology live. The videos are be available on the glass technology live-Website and the glasstec social media channels. All exhibits at glass technology live also pick up at least one of the global trend topics of glasstec 2022.
The highly topical cross-industry themes of climate protection and resource savings will also be the focus of the concurrently held Expo for Decarbonised Industries > ENERGY STORAGE. It will cover a wide range of products and services for climate-friendly, safe and efficient energy supply in companies.
The programme of decarbXpo 2022
The Expo for Decarbonized Industries > ENERGY STORAGE (decarbXpo) will not only showcase technologies and services but also provide an important platform for information exchange between user industries and experts from the field of renewable energies.
A forum program with current best-practice examples and a conference program that combines research and practice will complete the trade fair. This includes the International Renewable Energy Storage Conference, the ecoMetals Day and the international conference of VDMA-AG Power-to-X for Applications.
From production to application: the #P2X Conference
Cutting-edge hydrogen expertise with a focus on applications will be shared right at the fairgrounds
in parallel with glasstec and decarbXpo this year: VDMA will organise its “From Production to Application: The #P2X Conference” on 19 and 20 September. The German Engineering Association has already published its preliminary programme. Central topics will include: electrolysis and other hydrogen production processes, applications in process industries, security issues, transport and logistics as well as the assessment of complete supply chains and their business cases.
In addition, the elimination of access restrictions and social distancing rules will once again enable all participants of glasstec 2022 to enjoy the pure trade fair experience. The high safety and hygiene standards will of course still be provided.
