October 3rd.
“This is year dero for us – stated Dino Zandonella Necca, President of Vitrum – we expended all of our efforts in this year's
edition in terms of synergistic activities, involvement and promotional initiatives that already paid off in Murano, in June, with the
organization of the first International Convention of Glass Associations. Today Vitrum is officially embarking on a new path
marked by global activities to put our industry on the world map and strengthen its strategic, all-round importance”.
“Vitrum 2017 is traditionally an eagerly-anticipated event - remarks Laura Biason, Vitrum Director – and ranks among the
leading international glass shows. The value of the machinery on display this year is in excess of €12 million, tangible proof of
the importance attached by both Italian and overseas companies to our exhibition”.
The first Vitrum 2017 day was inaugurated with the opening press conference, attended by Giorgio Giovagnoli, Head of the
Ministry for Economic Development; Licia Mattioli, Confindustria's Vice President for Internationalization; Michele Scannavini,
President of ITA - Italian Trade Agency. The press conference was opened by Dino Zandonella Necca, President of Vitrum.
Eagerly anticipated was also the inauguration of the “Unique Interpretations - Glass experiences” exhibit organized by
Vitrum inside the Technology and Innovation Area. A distillation of art, history and technology, the exhibit offers cultural insights
that complement the spirit of a trade show that epitomizes the excellence in glass processing machinery.
The exhibit was open from October 3 through 6.
Last but not least for the first Vitrum day, the seminar focused on Industry Plan 4.0 incentives in Room Scorpio. The event is
