glasstec, the leading international trade fair for the glass sector, and GlassPrint, Europe’s only dedicated conference and exhibition for glass decoration, have agreed to renew their successful cooperation. GlassPrint 2015 will be “powered by glasstec” and the two events will continue to support each other.

“We are pleased that GlassPrint will again be held in Düsseldorf (Germany). This contributes to Düsseldorf not only being the home of the global No. 1 trade fair for the glass sector every two years but also an attraction for a major part of this industry in the years when glasstec does not take place. Decorative glass finishing is also a dynamic exhibition segment at glasstec, reflecting the great potential of this field,” commented Birgit Horn, Director of glasstec.

Dave Fordham, Publishing & Events Director, Chameleon Business Media (Glass Worldwide) explained: “As co-organizer of GlassPrint with ESMA, we are very pleased that the 2015 event will be powered again by glasstec. In addition to our other sponsors, the support of a major organization like Messe Düsseldorf has greatly enhanced GlassPrint and helped to provide even better value to the global glassmakers, decorators and suppliers in attendance.”

GlassPrint 2015 will be staged on November 24 and 25, 2015 at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia Hotel in Düsseldorf. Expert speakers will offer a series of technical conference presentations covering the latest advanced technologies for printing onto architectural, automotive and hollow glass with digital and screen applications.

In addition, a series of keynote speeches covering flat and hollow glass will be presented by renowned industry representatives from glasstec (Messe Düsseldorf), BV-Glas, FEVE, Glass for Europe and the VDMA (German Engineering Federation).

GlassPrint will be jointly organized by Chameleon Business Media, publisher of Glass Worldwide, and ESMA, a European association for specialist printing manufacturers. For further information and the conference agenda visit

When last held in 2013, GlassPrint attracted a record audience of approximately 200 attendees from 27 different countries.
