81st Conference on Glass Problems – Virtual Event

Oct 26, 2020 / Events

In light of recent events related to COVID-19, the 81st Conference on Glass Problems will be held as a virtual event rather than a live event, October 26–30, 2020.

Offering a robust content rich program, symposium, and short courses, the conference presentations will be recorded and available as downloads for conference attendees until November 13. In addition, conference attendees will be sent a link where they can download technical manuscripts of the main conference proceedings.

Join us this week as members of HWI’s technical marketing and sales teams meet virtually to discuss how HWI provides the largest refractory manufacturing capacity to the glass industry in North America. Our 85+ years of research and development in the glass market have enabled us to pioneer innovative glass solutions, and we are thrilled to be sponsors of this annual event.
