There is good reason why glasstec can be called the "window to the world of glass." glasstec 2012 will again enable world-wide industry professionals to come together in one place and find everything that might interest them: from glass production technology, glass processing and finishing, to glass production, glazing, window and door making, and architecture.
Furthermore, the show offers in-depth insights into future developments in the glass industry. Glass manufacturers and finishers put sophisticated glass applications on display that will even captivate the industry veteran. For over 30 years, glasstec has continued to serve as a forum for collaboration between manufacturers, architects, designers, and end users.
1,300 exhibitors and 55,000 attendees are strong numbers, but facts and figures alone do not build the core of a trade fair's rank or success. glasstec owes its reputation as the world's No. 1 fair for to the top names in glass just as much as to the high-caliber ancillary program that rounds out the range of exhibits.

As a mirror of the glass market, glasstec 2012 will now also cater to an industry segment widely considered to be the world's fastest growing energy technology: solar energy production. The solar industry is young, self-confident, innovative and extremely dynamic. Industry analysts believe that the US and Germany will be the largest PV (photovoltaics) markets in the world within five years, with expected market growth rates of 20 percent annually.
solarpeq is open to all companies offering process engineering / production equipment for thin film and crystalline PV - from machinery and equipment for the production of solar applications to suppliers of components and raw materials.
