In recognition of its importance on the global glass event calendar, four leading industry organisations have announced their sponsorship of GlassPrint 2009 – the leading event in Europe for the decoration of glass.

The DGG, glassglobal.com, SGCDpro and the SGIA will be sponsoring the two-day conference and exhibition that will be held in Germany from 25-26 November 2009. The event will present anyone involved with the decoration of glass with the latest trends and developments for the decoration of both container and flat glass.

"The DGG is very pleased to sponsor the GlassPrint 2009 conference and exhibition in Darmstadt because it provides German and international glassmakers and decorators with the latest technological developments in this important sector. We look forward to also welcoming international visitors to Germany." Dr Ulrich Roger, Management, Deutsche Glastechnische Gesellschaft

"As the industry´s outstanding website, glassglobal.com is proud to sponsor GlassPrint 2009. It is a very important event staged in Germany but like glassglobal.com, its audience is wholly worldwide.

André Ommer, General Manager, OGIS GmbH

GlassPrint 2009 will expand upon the highly successful 2007 event and will move to the spacious and easily accessible Maritim Konferenz hotel in Darmstadt (near Frankfurt). Industry experts will present delegates with the latest advanced technologies for printing onto all types of glass, including:

· Keynote address
· New directions in heavy metal-free inks
· Innovation in digital printing
· Advanced machinery technology
· Efficient pre-press technology
· Group discussions.

The event will once again be accompanied by an exhibition of specialist suppliers of equipment, consumables, technology and services who will display the latest developments in inks, pre-press technology, printing equipment and supplies.

GlassPrint 2009 follows on from the 2007 event, which was deemed an outstanding success by the international audience of 170 glassmakers, glass decorators and leading suppliers. Delegates travelled from over 20 different countries including long distance destinations such as Belarus, Colombia, Israel, Korea, Peru, Philippines, South Africa and the USA.
