The conference will bring together industry leaders to discuss innovative technologies and latest global architectural façade trends in modern façade design including but not limited to digital advancements including 3D printing, BIM for façades, hybrid and sustainable façades, etc.” 

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