Glassman Events

Glassman Conference

The Glassman conference will address the latest trends in glassmaking with high-level speakers. The conference will run alongside the exhibition and is free to attend for all visitors to the show.

Is glass the answer to increased opposition to plastic?

Glassman Europe in Lyon this September aims to help manufacturers debate how the glass industry can increase the reduced reliance on single-use plastic.

Glass is unique in its ability to be 100% recyclable. As the war on plastic wages on, Glassman Europe will address how the glass industry can innovate and overcome barriers to switching to container glass as an alternative to the thousands of tons of plastic created every day.
