Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017 the Glass performance Days (GPD) Conference was initially began with the aim of developing the global glass industry through education.
The first event was organized in 1992 and it has since grown to become an important and leading platform in the global glass industry for educational and related business activities. The event is held every two years in Tampere, Finland.
The theme for the 2017 event is the current knowledge gap between the older and younger generations that are working in the glass industry. The event will address the need to have continuity in transferring knowledge from the older to the younger generations to cover this gap. Additionally, since the recent global recession has slowed down the growth of the industry, the event will be supporting the growth through innovation and education.
