Symposium 2023 in Lauscha

Dear friends of the Association of German Glassblowers, dear members of the VDG, 

On March 19, 2021, the long-awaited and happy news came from the Thuringian State Chancellery: The Conference of Ministers of Education of the federal states has included the "production of hand-blown glass Lauscha Christmas tree decorations" in the nationwide register of intangible cultural heritage.More than reason enough for the VDG to hold its 2023 conference in the Lauscha region. 

A cultural heritage for the world - from pearls to apparatus constructionFrom the motto "A cultural heritage for the world - from pearls to apparatus construction", one can see that the cradle of apparatus construction was here in Lauscha.There are many hotels in the Lauscha region, but unfortunately none that have enough beds to accommodate all participants of the conference. We found a suitable event hall for our conference in Sonneberg, not far from Lauscha.A list of hotels can be found here. We ask that you reserve rooms and register as early as possible. We will try to form as many car pools as possible, the upcoming trips are very difficult to organize with buses. 

factory visits

The very interesting company tours on Thursday, at Pfaudler Normag Systems GmbH and EST Andrä Grafittechnik GmbH, must be approached directly with your own vehicles. Then the hotels should be visited. Further information, including the alternative program, will follow on the social media pages. 


For those who can still find some time on Saturday afternoon, we have a very special highlight.
