GPD: dedicated to the development of the global glass industry

2013-08-09 | Events

Held for the first time in 1992, GPD has continued to bring together major experts of the glass industry every two years to discuss and develop the global glass industry. This year’s event, to take place 13 to 15 June, will also include workshops (11-12 June), and a Glass Expo.
