Event description

Glass Performance Days Conference reached its 25 Year Anniversary in June 28th-30th, 2017. GPD can look back at an impressive record of collected and shared glass industry essentials, making it more than 10 000 pages of technical documents. Since its inception in 1992, a total of over 14,600 delegates have attended 3,200 presentations, listened to 1,100 speakers and formed over 30,000 contacts.

Twenty-five years could well be labeled one generation in the life of a business. Many things have changed and some basics, like the physical properties of the glass material, have remained the same. A look at today's city planning and building designs plus the requirements put on energy-efficiency, environmental comfort and stylishness reveals how far we have come from the very first use of glass to cover window openings in buildings.
