We are pleased to announce the relaunch of the SFE Middle East Region, which will be run by a local organizing committee based in Dubai. Benjamin Beer of Ramboll Façade will take up the role of Chair and Ian Weekes of Meinhardt Façade in the role of Vice-Chair for this region, and both are excited to contribute to a successful growth of the Society of Façade Engineers in the Middle East. Further members of the organizing committee will be announced soon. We look forward to the upcoming events in this region that will offer a forum for members and non-members to listen to high-profile speakers on a variety of façade related topics and case studies, promoting excellence and best practice in façade engineering.

Download Technical Committee Event Report - Glasstec 2018

Glasstec is a bi-annual glass trade fair where manufacturers and suppliers of glass and glass production equipment show case their latest technology and products. There are also research academic organisations displaying their developments and prototypes. The 2018 Glasstec took place between 23rd and 26th October, and attracted manufacturers, suppliers and research groups from around the world.

The next Glasstec trade fair is scheduled on 20-23 October 2020. For façade engineers, the trade fair is a place to keep up with the latest development in glass industry, and broaden the minds with the engineering development that may not seem to be applicable today, but will bring innovation in façade design in the future. 
This short article only covers some of the salient developments showcased at the Glasstec tradefair and many other products and innovations were on display
