Hosted at one of Italy’s and Europe’s most competitive trade show venues, it attracts Exhibitors, Trade Professional and Buyers from around the world who come to share four days dedicated entirely to glass and its infinite applications. Among the highlights: themed pathways, meetings, parallel events and exclusive services.


Twelve logos that identify Exhibitor specializations lead Visitors along as many themed pathways – clearly indicated on show maps – for easy navigation among the stands.

But that’s not all: the 12 Vitrum Specialized logos are backed by targeted advertising in the official catalog, newsletters and press releases to ensure greater visibility for Exhibitors and improved access to the show for all Trade Professionals.


Targeted investments aimed at driving and intensifying digital transformation are strategies at the core of the 4th industrial revolution. Drivers known to result in a competitive edge include: enabling infrastructures, interconnectedness and automated production systems. Vitrum shines the spotlight on these in order to bring insight to developments and trends in manufacturing and again emphasize that glass processing machinery lies at the origins of logics 4.0.


Networking and building relationships are inherent to trade show business. They gain proactive value when backed by an efficient organization with 20/20 foresight. Vitrum is a demonstrably broad platform with a feature-rich array of focused activities that stimulate dialog and foster interaction among industry stakeholders.

Because doing business also means creating opportunities.


At center stage are the excellencies produced by the entire glass supply chain – cutting-edge technologies, exclusive previews and latest-gen integrated solutions.

All of the exhibit areas are equipped to accommodate fully functioning machinery and systems of all sizes.

Because at Vitrum innovation is “live”.


Today, more than ever, the value of human capital is of a crucial significance. Vitrum is committed to industry updating, offering seminars and trainings that foster professionalism and its goals and allow upgrading of the most-sought-after skills in a constantly evolving market.


The smarter a smart factory is, the more successfully it meets expectations for the wellbeing of current and future generations. Expectations that must include stewardship of the environment and the entire planet. Vitrum contributes to this mission by focusing on processes that take into account this delicate but critical balance.


Transparent, “naturally” green and extremely versatile. Glass is fragile but, at the same time, capable of exceptional strength. So much so that it has become an increasingly conspicuous element in the most modern and audacious construction projects. But its appearance does not deceive: from ancient to modern times, glass has been at the center of countless daily tasks. History, essential to interpreting the present and the future, tell us so.

And history, like creativity, is at the heart of Vitrum.
