The 28th China International Glass Industial Technical Exhibition (CHINA GLASS 2017) will take place at China International Exhibition Center (New Venue) on May 24 - 27, 2017. The organizer is steadily promoting its preparation and organization work based on the concept of professionalization, internationalization and scale-up development. This exhibition will showcase innovative development of the global glass industry in all aspects and bring an authoritative and professional platform which covers the whole glass industrial chain.
Following a long-term rapid development, the China glass industry is facing such serious industrial situations as excess production capacity, imbalance between supply and demand, benefit decreasing, slow pace of structural adjustment and upgrading, and lack of creativity for new demand. 2017 is a year for deepening the supply-side structural reform of the building materials industry in China. Related documents of the State Council provided guidelines for speeding up structural adjustment, transformation and upgrading, controlling economic downturn and benefit drops of the glass industry. Innovative achievements of the glass industry, including ultra-clear glass and ultra-thin glass, have continuously been scored. Meanwhile, the supply-demand gap is shrinking and the glass industry shows a growth trend in the first half of the year 2016 and China’s glass industry now becomes more confident in further development.
As one of the two main exhibitions and also the biggest event of the global glass industry in 2017, CHINA GLASS 2017 will be the focus of the global glass community for its large scale, an exhibition area of over 100,000 square meters in 8 exhibition halls of the China International Exhibition Center (New Venue).

This grand glass exhibition will attract more than 40,000 visitors from over 70 countries.
