Hotbels History

Hotbels has an extensive history, beginning with the first seminar held in 1977; it officially became "Hotbels" in 1998 when Hotwork became a division of the Fosbel Group.  Though Hotwork and Fosbel are independent today, we still collaborate to present information on the advancement of innovation and technology to the Glass Industry.

Bob Chambers, Managing Director for Fosbel, said, "Hotbels' purpose is to present topics that are of interest to glass makers.  Every year, Hotwork and Fosbel are challenged with the task of finding experts to present on relevant topics, allowing for Q&A, and creating the opportunity for collaboration of technical exchange, expansion of knowledge and the movement towards resolution." 


Hotbels is held in Lexington, Kentucky, and attracts all levels of the glass industry, not only in North America, but also worldwide.  Our 2019 event attracted representatives from 40 glass production facilities, in addition to delegates from 23 different organizations that supply essential services & products to the glass industry.
