Society of Glass Technology – 15th Furnace Solutions conference

The 15th Furnace Solutions conference, organized by the Society of Glass Technology (SGT), will take place 9th and 10th June 2021

The Society of Glass Technology (SGT) have decided that in view of the indeterminate situation concerning the COVID pandemic that they cannot be sure of being able to successfully run the Furnace Solutions & Training Day in its usual format. In order to satisfy interest in these conferences SGT have taken the decision to run them on Zoom webinars.

Furnace Solutions will be held on the afternoons of June 9th and 10th, starting at 13.00 BST. This timing has been chosen  so that there is the opportunity to link-in easily with the European contingent, as well as hopefully attract interest from the Indian sub-continent and early risers in the USA. there is an exciting set of speaker.
