The Vitrum show, held last week at the Milan Fairgrounds in Milan, ended Saturday, October 26.

According to event organizers, visitor attendance remained stable as the show came to a close, with a 2.33-percent increase in overseas visitors compared to the previous show.

“Data collected so far evidenced the positive results also for this Vitrum edition notwithstanding the global crisis which, despite weak signs of abating, continues to negatively affect Europe and the entire world,” says Vitrum director Renata Gaffo. “Despite an Italian market that is still under pressure, Vitrum proved to be a focal point of attraction for both the numerous international buyers who thronged the exhibit halls and the Italian and foreign companies operating in the glass industry.”
