84th Glass Problems Conference Recap

VIM Technologies (VIM) thoroughly enjoyed attending the 84th Conference on Glass Problems at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. It was a remarkable event that brought together the best minds in the glass manufacturing industry.

The primary goal of the conference was to equip participants with insights into the existing factors influencing glass manufacturing, available technology options, and upcoming trends. This event was collaboratively organized by the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council and Alfred University, earning an endorsement from The American Ceramic Society.

Participating as an exhibitor afforded our company an exclusive perspective to observe the event’s key moments and interact with its attendees. The conference served as a hub of innovation, featuring diverse sessions, symposiums, and discussions. Notably, the focal point was the symposium entitled “The Future of Glass Manufacturing,” which delved into various technologies for energy and carbon savings, as well as advancements in furnace and refractory design.

It was great to connect with industry leaders, potential clients, and fellow exhibitors, all sharing a common passion for the glass manufacturing industry. We look forward to the next conference.
