Overseas suppliers such as Iris Inspection machines, GPS, Xpar Vision, Heye International, FIC UK and Bottero were among the exhibitors.
The conference, titled Future Glass Forum, focused on Industry 4.0 in container and hollow glassmaking.
Steve Diprose, Managing Director of show organiser, Quartz Business Media, said: “I would like to extend my thanks to all the exhibitors and visitors who have helped make the show a success.
“I would like to thank our Thai hosts and in particular the GMFTI who supported the show and encouraged their members to attend in such numbers.
