In light of recent events related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Glass Manufacturing Industry Council (GMIC) has announced that the 81st Conference on Glass Problems (GPC) will be held virtually, October 26-30, 2020.
The decision to cancel the live version of GPC is based on guidance from the WHO and the CDC, as well as local government and public health authorities of the conference venue, according to the organization. Registration will open on August 3, 2020.
“We appreciate the efforts of our organizers, volunteers, vendors and partners to work with us and respond to a fast-changing situation in a way that allows us to continue to serve our members and mission,” says Bob Lipetz, conference director and GMIC executive director. We apologize for this inconvenience; however, we believe that pivoting to a virtual conference will protect the health of our attendees and staff members. We will be offering a robust content rich program, symposium and short courses that I am sure you will find valuable.”
