GPAD 2017: Industry education event returns to New Orleans

GPAD—the glass industry’s most exciting, educational, and informative event—offers a rare opportunity to see first-hand the latest user-friendly, comprehensive software integration systems alongside the most up-to-date and cutting-edge glass processing developments.

Held in New Orleans, Louisiana from March 14-15, GPAD 2017 promises to inspire both new glass fabricators as well as seasoned veterans of the glass industry. This unique two-day event is an opportunity to investigate all the new and innovative technologies in the glass fabrication industry and discover the additional benefits of automation and integration.
GPAD—Glass Processing Automation Days
GPAD is an annual two-day educational experience designed for glass fabrication industry leaders that provides in-depth insight into the latest developments in glass fabrication equipment and software solutions in an up-close and personal setting unavailable anywhere else on the globe.
GPAD is traditionally held during the late winter at a warm weather destination that invites participants to become inspired to learn about the latest innovations in the glass fabrication industry—all while reconnecting with others in the field and developing new relationships. GPAD’s previous locations have included San Diego, San Antonio, and New Orleans.
GPAD is not a trade show, but an extraordinary educational event
Founded by FeneTech, GPAD includes breakout sessions that feature technical experts from more than a dozen production and technology solution providers. How do we do this? Attendance is limited to 100 participants, which allows for unprecedented interaction between attendees and presenters.
Presenting vendors have staff available in the exhibit area during breaks to answer questions or discuss the latest advancements in glass fabrication.
Participants will also be able to network extensively with fellow attendees. During breaks, meals, and each evening’s entertainment during both days, there will be time to meet and interact with area experts attending from companies interested in exploring how the latest innovations can benefit quality, speed, efficiency, and profits.
