GPD events

The Glass Performance Days (GPD) is a forum dedicated to the development of the global glass industry through education and networking.

GPD conferences are organized in Finland, China and Brazil every two years. In Finland, GPD also organizes workshops and a glass exhibition. The latest GPD conference took place in Tampere, Finland on June 14-16, 2023. Find out more about GPD 2023.

The next edition, GPD 2025,  will be held from June 10 to 12, 2025 at the Nokia Arena in Tampere, Finland.

Since 2017, a glass industry startup event Step Change, aimed at promoting development of the industry, has been organized in connection with the Glass Performance Days Finland conference.

In addition to the conferences, GPD hosts the Theme Park by GPD. This is a series of online activities where GPD recognizes and appreciates the work done by those speakers who submitted publication material for the GPD Finland 2021 proceedings book.
