GPD: dedicated to the development of the global glass industry

2013-04-20 | 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.

Glass Performance Days was first launched in 1992, under the name Glass Processing Days
Glass Performance Days history
Glass Performance Days was first launched in 1992, under the name Glass Processing Days. The event was organized in Tampere, Finland, and the idea was to bring experts together, who, by sharing their knowledge, could find better solutions that would benefit everyone.
The first event was a success and the following year the number of attendees increased to almost triple the initial number, reaching 80 participants. In 1994, GPD China was launched with 100 participants in its first edition, and was re-launched in 2004 with an audience of 180 persons.
In 1995, three years from its inception, GPD Finland became a conference in the true sense of the word, with 400 participants. The organizers therefore decided that in order to provide the best possible experience, the event should be organized every two years.
In 2005, Glass Processing Days became Glass Performance Days and consolidated its global position by launching GPD India in 2008 and GPD South America in 2010. In 2007 GPD Finland reached its record number of participants: 1000.

The present day
Glass Performance Days (GPD) is an independent forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry.
The main conference in Tampere, Finland, is organized every two years, and consists of the largest and leading international glass conference, several workshops, glass product exhibition and versatile social activities. A smaller, more specific market directed GPD conference is organized every year...
