Companies exhibiting with the Gimav group (BDF Industries, Glass Service, Mappi, Ocmi OTG, Olivotto Glass) and the two Italian companies attending as separate exhibitors (Bottero and Pneumofore) reported that interest was high.

“The exhibition was relatively quiet in terms of visitor attendance, but on the other hand the level of attention was very high,” says Gimav deputy director Laura Biason. “Our companies signaled a large amount of interest, which further demonstrates how Italian products have a great appeal for the local glass industry. The overall optimism was clearly perceivable: at the stand we also had a catalog library and distributed lots of information about the member companies that had not come to the exhibition. We also helped by providing information and detailed answers to very specific, motivated questions. We were pleased to see that there was an overall willingness to analyze new proposals, a clear sign that the market is dynamic and there is a high propensity to invest.”
