What makes this year’s event so special?
This is Jorma Vitkala’s last year at the helm of GPD as Chairman of the Organizing Committee. As founding father of this spectacular event, Jorma has touched the hearts of glass industry participants by creating this special forum to rally and promote higher glass industry performance. It seems only fitting that also a record number of participants plan to attend the wild-west-themed Farewell Party on Friday evening, June 28.

Jorma moves on with deep-felt gratitude to everyone involved in making GPD the internationally revered event that it has become over the past 27 years.

Thanks to hours of work, dedication, cooperation and belief in such a special event, GPD has reached such a super-star level of popularity and become the meeting point for industry change.

Thanks to all participants, speakers, believers – and the entire glass industry. You’ve helped us take glass performance far beyond our wildest dreams and we are truly grateful!

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event!
