Registration for the annual Glass Processing Automation Days event is now open. Hosted by FeneTech Inc., GPAD gathers the best minds in the North American glass industry to discuss advancements and trends in glass automation. 

“Fabricators spend large amounts of money on equipment and software for their businesses every year. GPAD is an excellent opportunity for executives to gather in one place to learn about integration of software and the latest machinery—how to get the most out of their investments,” said Ronald Crowl, president and CEO of FeneTech. “No other industry event provides this level of detailed discussion and education. I’ve been in the industry nearly 20 years and GPAD is helping to fulfill my vision of bringing the best minds in the industry together to create new standards and systems that provide significant value."

The GPAD conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas, March 18-20, 2015. This event offers glass processing executives the unique opportunity to gain insight on competitive advantages and increased profitability through modern machinery and software technology. Event highlights include live presentations about new and upcoming equipment and software options from leading manufacturers, Q&A sessions with industry key opinion leaders and networking with top executives of other glass processing companies and suppliers. 
The 2015 conference agenda is designed to continue the momentum created during the 2014 event in New Orleans, Louisiana. 

“I attended my first GPAD event last year and am interested in the focus of how different technologies benefit the glass fabricator," said Darrell Aldrich, technical operations manager at Cardinal CT. “The New Orleans meeting was the beginning of what could grow into a must attend for anyone wanting to keep up with technology in glass fabrication.”

“I really enjoyed GPAD in 2014, the format provided for a fast paced but interactive experience," said Jim Arnold, president of Glassource. "I am looking forward to the 2015 GPAD in San Antonio. These events really highlight the cutting edge aspects and products in our industry plus it is another great place to visit."
