The annual Furnace Solutions conferences deal entirely with ‘practical’ glassmaking issues and are targeted at glassmakers, furnace equipment and specialist materials suppliers.

The conference’s informal format allows delegates to share their experiences, and discuss solutions to some of today’s glass melting challenges.

The conference venue is Lucideon (formerly Ceram), in Stoke-on-Trent, UK and takes place on Thursday June 5th, 2014.

It is preceded by a training day titled Combustion of Fuel in Furnaces, which takes place on Wednesday June 4th.

With its excellent conference facilities, proximity to motorway and rail links, and within 90 minutes of both Birmingham and Manchester airports, it has proved to be popular with all delegates.

The conference fee, including a buffet lunch and refreshments, is £110.
