Welcome to Theme Park by GPD!
Theme Park by GPD was originally born in 2021 as an idea to recognize authors who submitted publication material for the GPD Finland 2021 proceedings book.
The world, as it is today, has presented multi-faced challenges for companies. The challenges, among others, can be in planning, inventory, purchasing, office space use, marketing, and promotional activities.
This means that the way we have been looking at trends in the market may not be sufficient. Market trends are perceived as tendencies that move in a particular direction over a period. They are classified as short-term, mid-term or long-term trends. Planning and other activities of companies are guided by the perceived trends. With the new normal, this seems to have been affected due to the uncertainty brought by the pandemic.
How are we coping in the glass industry? Your opinion counts!
Speakers and topics this week:
The future of glass in sustainable and zero emission buildings, Bertrand Cazes, Glass for Europe.
North American Market Trends, Urmilla Sowell, National Glass Association.
iWin – Glass as Data Carrier, Andreas Bittis, Saint Gobain.
Structure-property correlations in borosilicate in comparison to soda lime glass, Juliane Brandt-Slowik, Schott AG.
“The special glass BOROFLOAT® 33 will continue to be used in many different ways in the future. A very interesting new application is as performance glazing for commercial vehicles such as long-haul trucks to reduce their downtime.”
“Sustainable buildings have to ensure safety and security, a healthy indoor environment and provide comfort and being.
Glass ticks all the boxes. It is the sole material that brings natural light indoor and allow building occupants to have a visual horizon and a view to the outside.
It is clear that glazing is essential to deliver truly sustainable buildings.”
