    Vitrum 2007 – International trade fair for machinery, equipment and systems for the processing of flat and hollow glass; glass and finished products for industry – will have a host of new offerings to showcase to the international public.
    The 15th VITRUM in fact, will be staged at Fiera Milano’s new exhibition complex in Rho, from 3 to 6 October 2007.

    Building on the success of the 2005 exhibition, Vitrum 2007 confirms the excellent trend by offering exhibitors an innovative, functional and unique showcase, which is the brainchild of architect Massimiliano Fuksas, the designer of Milan’s new exhibition center.

    Vitrum 2007 couldn’t have chosen a better stage because of the exhibitor spaces, which comply with international standards, and the logistics, which meet the needs of the many visitors that are expected.
    The Sail - a glass and steel architectural element that is the symbol of Fiera Milano - will be the setting for what is currently one of the glass industry’s leading international appointments: Vitrum.

    A new exhibition complex but also new showcases grouped into four different product areas:
     - Flat glass processing machinery;
     - VHG Vitrum Hollow Glass: hollow glass processing machinery;
     - VTE Vacuum Coating Technology;
     - Glassware

    Four separate product areas that can be easily explored thanks to visitor-friendly, clearly identifiable routes for a hassle-free discovery of the latest and greatest in the glass industry.


    The exhibition organizers will be providing 30.000 square meters of net exhibition space. The spaces for the stands have been arranged to offer the best access and visibility for the exhibitors who, based on the figures available to date, should total more than 450. Current forecasts of visitor attendance numbers are also looking good with a total of 20.000 people expected during the 4-day event.
    These numbers are very different from those posted at the first sessions of Vitrum, highlighting the fact that the exhibition has been growing steadily over the years, and are a testament to the importance it holds for companies and the trade. These results reflect the market’s constant search for new solutions and technologies and show it is a non-static sector that continues to grow. This continues to drive the development of the entire glass industry which includes not only Italy and Europe but also Asia, the Middle East, United States, Canada, South America and even Oceania.

    Since the Vitrum 2007 organizing secretariat has been receiving several requests for information, especially following the major change in the venue, we have summarized some useful logistic information in a brief table sheet together with a map of the area (you can click the image to obtain detailed information).
