Due to the recent rise in COVID-19 cases worldwide, Glass Performance Days (GPD) has announced Glass Performance Days 2021 has been canceled. According to a press release, participants have indicated travel restrictions set by their companies and in their countries would possibly prevent their attendance and travel to Finland.

In the press release, GPD states, “We once again sought the opinion of various GPD partners on whether we should hold an online-only event in February 2022. Majority prefer the event to be held in a hybrid format instead of an online-only version. Since we cannot tell if things will change for the better in 2022, and to avoid this uncertainty, we have now decided to cancel the GPD 2021 edition.”

Due to the cancellation, planning has started for GPD 2023, which is expected to be held as a summer live event in Tampere. The 2023 event dates and details will be released at a later date, according to organizers.
