GPAD announced today that their 2015 conference, where the best minds in the North American glass industry meet annually to discuss advancements and trends in glass automation, was a huge success!    GPAD events are created to provide glass processing executives with an opportunity to gather in one place and learn about the latest machinery and software Innovation, Automation and Integration.  “The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive that our GPAD mission and goals were exceeded at this year’s conference,” said Ronald Crowl, President and CEO of FeneTech, Inc., industry leading manufacturer of glass software systems and Founder of Glass Processing Automation Days (GPAD).  “No other industry event provides this level of detailed discussion, education, and networking while having fun at a beautiful destination.” The 2015 GPAD conference took place at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk in San Antonio, TX on March 18-20, 2015.  The planning committee has already begun the search for next year’s destination and has chosen Nashville, TN.  The event is tentatively scheduled for mid-March, 2016.  With 12 months of advance notice, next year’s GPAD presents a great opportunity for every glass processing executive to combine this unique event to gain insight on competitive advantages and increased profitability through automated machinery and software technology with a fantastic family vacation to celebrate Spring Break.  Attendees welcomed this refreshing symposium style event.  “I was very pleased with the content and format of GPAD,” said Dr.

Charles E. Boyer, Vice President Research, Process & Product Development at Viracon. “The theme of Innovation and Integration was well coordinated. I much appreciated learning about new capabilities and I look forward to more in-depth follow-up in select technology areas.” John Dwyer, President of Syracuse Glass Co. further added, “I enjoyed attending GPAD again because it gave me the opportunity to network with my industry peers in an intimate setting, to learn about the various new machinery and to meet some new potential vendors. The social events were outstanding and well organized.”

There are many industry events around the world but no other event gets you this close to the industry leaders, details on the latest trends and takes glass processing to the next level.
