Event description

GPD Istanbul 2018 will bring together different parties from glass industry supply chain again!

This will be the 4th time the event will happen in Istanbul, Turkey. About 200-300 attendees participated in each of the GPD Istanbul events held in 2015, 2016 and 2017. In 2018, we expect attendance to be on the same level.

Similar to earlier GPD Istanbul events, the 2018 event will again be organized concurrently with Eurasia Window, Glass and Door Exhibition. Over 60 000 visitors from 93 different countries attended the exhibition last year.

The program content will provide an overview of the glass industry and its actors as well as valuable information on new trends, technologies and applications. This will include

  • case studies from architectural and structural design point of view, types of glass used and how building envelops are made
  • technical sessions focusing on new innovations, glass processing as well as how to improve quality and profitability of processing companies.
