Managing the future – facing the challenge of digitalisation and social change with knowledge and courage, and using new technologies!

Dynamic internet portals, digitalisation, Industry 4.0, migration movements, demographics – all this is rapidly impacting on purchasing decisions, and hence on products.

Those who do not recognise trends in good time and develop suitable solutions will not survive in the market. For this reason, the most important technological trends and their effects on social development will be analysed at this year’s Window and Façade Conference at Rosenheim from 11 to 13 October 2017.

Furthermore, the new Model Building Code (MBO) and Model Administrative Regulation Technical Building Rules (MVV TB), and the normative changes in the ISO 10077 (U-values) standard and those relating to window hardware, require first-hand information.

The window and facade industry is increasingly feeling the impact of the internet and the "digitalisation wave". Internet portals, the automation of building components, the Smart Home and new apps are a clear sign that technology and purchasing behaviour are undergoing fundamental change. Likewise, products are changing rapidly.

Windows are replacing facades, pedestrian doors are becoming industrial doors, external doors are becoming internal doors and lift doors are becoming entrance doors.

Applications are becoming interchangeable and offer many new opportunities. In order to ensure that these "waves" do not turn into floods for companies, the 45th Rosenheim Window and Façade Conference will analyse the most important trends in 29 lectures and 4 workshops.

In his lecture “Managing the future – facing the challenge of digitalisation and social change with knowledge and courage”, the Director of the ift, Prof Ulrich Sieberath, will present analyses and solutions for window and facade manufacturers.

Another keynote speaker, Dr Jens-Uwe Meyer (Innolytics GmbH) will give a talk entitled “Take note – digital disruption in the window industry” in which he will demonstrate how digital technologies can be used to enhance innovation without the risk of companies becoming victims of digitalisation and failing in the market.

Another highlight is a detailed look at the facade of the Elbphilharmonie by Michael Elstner (AGC Interpane), Stefan Goeddertz (Herzog & de Meuron) and Karl Lindenmaier (Josef Gartner).
