Few who attend would contend that Glass Performance Days in Finland is the place to be every year
Glass Performance Days (GPD) is held every June in Tampere, Finland’s second city and is a huge, international gathering for the glass processing sector.
It is an independent forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry through education by organising conferences that have extended from the original Scandinavian base to embrace different countries. Currently conferences are held in Finland, India and Brazil every two years and in China every year. In Finland, GPD also organises advanced technological workshops as well as a glass exhibition.
The GPD Finland 2015 event will have a renewed structure of activities based on the feedback given by previous participants. The main part of the programme will have educational and business components and will be held during the week, starting Tuesday through Friday (June 23-26, 2015).
June 23-24: Workshops. There will be half and full day workshops ranging from 4 to 8 hours each. These are short courses offering participants hand-on knowledge and practical information on specific topics. To attend any of the workshops an additional fee is normally charged.
June 24-26: Conference, exhibition and networking activities. The whole event focuses on innovation, business and design.
In line with this focus, the educational component will be the conference part that will have parallel sessions on each day where presentations and discussions will focus innovation, business or design
The business side will encompass an exhibition and networking activities. The exhibition is a conference exhibition which means that only conference participants will have access to it. It is the best place to network and establish new business contacts.
The networking activities will be held on two levels. Business networking activities will be held during the day in interactive formats such as one on one meetings, voting and polling, debates and panel discussions.
