Attendees travelled from 27 different countries, not only from throughout mainland Europe and United Kingdom but also from long distance destinations such as China, India, Peru, Singapore, South Africa, Sri Lanka and USA.


The two-day conference programme was also larger than ever before, offering delegates 16 technical conference presentations that covered the latest advanced technologies for printing onto architectural, automotive and hollow glass with digital and screen applications.

Four additional keynote addresses were made, covering the flat and hollow sectors. Stefan Jaenecke, President of FEVE and CEO of Verallia Deutschland, looked at current and future challenges and opportunities for the container glass industry, while Bertrand Cazes, Secretary General of Glass for Europe, presented ‘Sustainable buildings: the new ‘big thing. What does it mean for building glass products?’. Later, Dr Johann Overath, Director General of Bundesverband Glasindustrie e.V., examined the current situation and trends in the German glass industry and an update of glasstec 2014 was provided by Birgit Horn, project director at Messe Düsseldorf.
