GPD: 2011 meeting on breaktrough solutions and emerging new technologies

2011-03-01 | Events

With the experience of 11 past editions, GPD is gearing up for the 2011 edition of the largest international conference on architectural, solar and automotive glass. GPD 2011 will offer a range of break-through solutions in combination with emerging new technologies yet to be tested. The Desertec Initiative, with solar power from Africa through an advanced distribution grid, is a key example of this.

GPD: 2011 meeting on breaktrough solutions and emerging new technologies
GPD HISTORY
The willingness to cooperate has always been typical of the glass industry. Early on, however, there was no established and dedicated forum for practical, hands-on and business-like exchange of visions and experiences. The first GPD in 1992 gave birth to such a forum.

The 11th GPD, 12-15 June 2009, strengthened its position as the leading conference for the world’s glass industry and, in fact, despite the industry facing difficult times, there were about 850 delegates from 55 countries present at the event.

OPENING CEREMONY
The Opening Ceremony of this year’s event will take place from 15.30 to 19.30 on 17 June 2011, at Tampere Hall, with important speakers and presentations. Ralf Christian, CEO, Siemens AG Energy Sector, will present Smart Grid & Desertec - Turning the Vision into Reality. Desertec is a mega-project targeted to develop a reliable, sustainable and climate-friendly energy supply from the deserts in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Acc...
