Dino Zandonella Necca has been named the president of Vitrum, the international trade show specialized in machinery, equipment and systems for flat and hollow glass and in glass and processed products for industry, scheduled to take place in Milan October 6-9. The position took effect on Monday, April 20.

Additionally, show organizers have named Aldo Faccenda of Bottero SpA and Cinzia Schiatti of Schiatti Angelo Srl as vice presidents.

Dino Zandonella Necca served as vice president of Vitrum last year, and is a long-time member of the board of the firm that manages the show. He also serves as CEO and general manager of ADI SpA, an Italy-based company that manufactures diamond tools for the glass, stone, ceramics and mechanical industries.

“There will be no change in course; we will continue the journey toward Vitrum 2015 collectively mapped out last year with the members of the board,” says Necca. “We want to move forward with all the partnership activities needed to support our highly-specialized and extremely technological sector in the manner it deserves.”

He adds, “Given its concurrence with Expo 2015, which will shine the spotlight of global attention on Milan, this year’s show is especially meaningful, not to mention the complementary activities to Vitrum, like the ATIV Conference, and the special projects of great cultural impact that are part of the four-day show, and will allow visitors to Vitrum to expand their knowledge through exposure to the new ideas and technologies, applications and innovative machines and major creative and cultural aspects that revolve around the world of glass.”
