Structural glass applications and high-performance coatings are also few of the key topics being discussed. The summit agenda put forth topics highlighting the latest opportunities, challenges, and limitations in the field of façade design and engineering while sharing a pragmatic approach. The conference will also present itself as an opportunity to connect with industry influencers and peers to extend the business network.
