Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 18th edition of Southeast Asia's leading trade fair for Glass and Facade is postponed and will now take place from 26 – 28 October 2022 at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre in Singapore. This decision was reached by MMI Asia after a series of meetings and discussions with the industry, including Glasstech Asia's supporting organisations and stakeholders.
Mr. Michael Wilton, General Manager of MMI Asia commented: "After extensive discussions and feedback from the industry it has become clear that, despite our best efforts to create an in-person event this year in Bangkok, recent trends force us to postpone to 2022. We are looking forward to bringing the industry back together again in Singapore next year. Plans are already underway for what will be a welcome return to face-to-face business in 2022. In the meantime, we are excited to present further enhanced digital offerings to the market. Glasstech and Fenestration Asia are committed to bringing the very best minds together to further enhance, develop and equip the industry for the demands ahead in the coming years. The tools we are providing now will strive to achieve this for the industry"Rather than the annual physical trade fair, professionals in the glass and facade industry can expect a series of exciting virtual activities such as webinars that focuses on glass and facade, virtual booths, product placement opportunities, matchmaking with private secure meetings and customizable digital packages.
Additionally, all educational content, live streaming and video recordings of talks and discussions will be available for a global audience on Glasstech Asia Virtual. Interested companies will have the opportunity to present their products virtually in their own customized webinar sessions and in their virtual booths. Moreover, to increase networking opportunities, visitors will be able to initiate chats and video calls to get in touch and discuss with exhibitors and other visitors, along with other business matchmaking functions.
