11,000 professionals are expected to gather at the Dubai World Trade Centre from 24 to 26 September to attend Gulf Glass and Windows, Doors & Facades Event (WDF) – the region’s most important platforms for the glass, windows, doors, and facades industries.

Benjamin Beer, the Head of Facades at Ramboll, states:

“Active facade components, like active shading and glazing, are some of the most promising innovations. It is crucial to push the industry to develop and create high performance facades with focus on an enhanced thermal comfort designed for human beings.

“We always bear in mind that we spend most of our time indoors, and it’s therefore very important to understand how the glass selection affects the quality of the light filtering through the facade, and what impact it finally has on the building’s occupants,” Beer adds.

This year, visitors will be able to discover what’s new in the industry directly from leading brands including Schüco, Glaston, Orgadata, HEGLA, Gutmann, Elumatec, Bottero, Reynaers, Hueck, MJ Metal, Saint Gobain and Asahi India among many others.
