The 19th China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition (China Glass 2008) was held at the China International Exhibition Center in Beijing on 10 - ?13 April, 2008. This is another grand gathering of the glass circles from the world over. The exhibition was organized by the Chinese Ceramic Society, co-organized by the China National Association for Glass Industry and the Chinese Architectural and Industrial Glass Association, and run by the Beijing Zhonggui Exhibition Co., Ltd.

The China International Glass Industrial Technical Exhibition has been approved by the Chinese Government and held every year alternately at Shanghai (in odd years) and Beijing (in even years), and has enjoyed a great reputation both in China and abroad. Events of this exhibition are supported by Chinese glass-related government departments and nationwide associations.

Among them, 248 are foreign exhibitors, including 4 state exhibitors’ groups from Germany, Italy, the USA and Belgium. Many exhibitors, especially the Italian exhibitors group greatly enlarged their exhibition areas compared with the last event, so the total available exhibition area of the Exhibition Centre fell short of the demand.
