glassprint 2015

GlassPrint, Europe’s only dedicated conference and exhibition for glass decoration, will return to Düsseldorf, Germany on 25th and 26th November 2015.

Decoration is a key process in the manufacture of architectural, automotive and hollow glass, and adds considerably more value to the end product. GlassPrint 2015 is a two-day event that will present anyone involved with this important and expanding sector with the latest trends and developments for the decoration of all types of glass.
