The Glass Supper is an intimate gathering of a few visionary individuals noted for their passion when it comes to high performance architectural facades. Beginning with an afternoon of topical discussion and debate, based on issues that look set to become disruptive technologies and show signs indicative of the way the industry intends to move collectively forward. The event will continue in the hotel banqueting suite where supper will follow, interrupted by a presentation for the Society of Façade Engineering’s “Project of the Year” award.
