The GPD Pub will again take place during glasstec 2016. The event has been held during each glasstec over the past 15 years in the heart of Dusseldorf’s Altstadt.

“Renowned for being the leading after-dinner meeting place, it remains the best place for glass specialists to meet and network in a relaxed atmosphere,” a release from GPD reads. “The popularity of the pub stems from the fact that glasstec participants may not be able to arrange dinners for every client, but can meet them at the pub before and after dinner.”

Participants of the event include glass industry experts, structural engineers, architects, academic professionals, GPD sponsors, speakers and supporters.

“It is an excellent place to meet old and prospective customers,” says Timo Suomi of Ayrox, which has sponsored the event for years. “This year, with the addition of the VIP wine bar in the downstairs part of the pub, networking will be even more convenient due to the serene atmosphere of the wine bar area.”

Currently, GPD Pub 2016 is sponsored by AGC Interpane, Sparklike, Fenetech, Advanced Energy Industries, Dow Corning, Frintrup, THIEME, Kramer & Best, Ayrox, Haldenwanger, Glass online and Glass Technology International.
