Ken Clark, Glassman Sales Director said: “We have had good feedback from our exhibitors who have said it was a successful event.

“We believe that this has been one of the best Glassman Europe’s in recent years thanks to the quality of visitors and the geographical reach of the visitors who attended.

“I’d like to thank all of the exhibitors, visitors, conference speakers and the Lyon regional government who have helped make this such a memorable event.”
