GPD South America Final Program Released
April 16, 2010
Use of architectural glass in advanced building structures and
the finer points of security glass processing will form the base
of the first ever Glass Performance Days Conference in Sao Polo,
Brazil, May 6-7, 2010. The final program of the conference has been
released and is now available through www.gpd.fi.
Registration for the conference is now in progress.
The two-day GPD event is part of the Glass South America Trade
Fair organized by Abravidro and The Nürnberg Messe. The Glass
Performance Days Conference Program is organized and coordinated
by the GPD Organizing Committee.
The two-day event has parallel sessions on both days to allow
for flexible participation planning, says Jorma Vitkala, chair
of the organizing committee. The first day features an architectural
session on design and glass in architecture and a glass technology
session focusing on how the processing and handling of advanced
security glass can be made as efficient as possible. On the second
day the architectural module focuses on solar solutions and energy
efficiency while the glass technology session follows up key items
from the first day technology part.
We have managed to engage some outstanding speakers who represent
expertise in structural designs using glass and aim to focus on
the criteria for successful glass solutions, Vitkala continues.
Past GPD experiences have shown that innovative architectural
designs can gain even more benefits from added know-how of the characteristics
and properties of glass while glass specialists are eager to obtain
more insights into the requirements of structural designers. In
this way we look forward to an effective and highly productive conference.
Participants learning from the experts and from networking with
colleagues are likely to learn more about advanced design solutions
and increased processing efficiency which will no doubt reflect
on the performance of their own operations.
