The China Glass 2020 exhibition has been postponed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus situation in China. A new date will be announced at a future time. Since GPD China events are organized in conjunction with the China Glass exhibition, organizers have decided to cancel the GPD China conference for this year.

“We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” read a statement from the GPD China 2020 organizers.

The Chinese Ceramic Society sent out a notice to exhibitors and visitors explaining the decision to postpone China Glass 2020:
