The conference will also discuss the fire safety regulations in the region for building façades. 

Around 400 delegates from the regional industry are expected to attend the one-day conference on March 20th at Conrad Hotel, Dubai. The event is targeted at senior architects, developers, façade consultants, PMCs, façade contractors and key consultants and decision makers.
