Plans are already underway for  
Greenbuild 2018, which will take  
place November 14-16, 2018 at Mc-  
Cormick Place in Chicago.  
Glass Performance Days (GPD), an international glass conference, will take  
place in Istanbul for the fourth time March 7-10, 2018. Conference organizers  
are calling for abstracts from potential speakers. The GPD program, in conjunction  
with the Eurasia Window, Glass and Door Exhibition, puts a special emphasis on  
new innovations in the design, use and processing of glass.  
The fourth GPD Istanbul Conference venue is new and so is the program timing.  
The GPD seminar is now located in the fair area itself with the innovation corner  
attached to the event.
