SWISSPACER’s recent ‘Fenestra-Vision’ Symposium played host to energy efficiency professionals from across Europe, who congregated to discuss the future of windows and facades.

This September, SWISSPACER hosted its second ‘Fenestra-Vision’ Symposium in Potsdam, Germany.

The conference, which attracted Europe’s leading authorities on energy efficient solutions, placed a focus on the future of energy efficient windows and facades.

Led by Professor Ulrich Sieberath of the Rosenheim Institution for Fenestration, the event presented industry experts with the opportunity to discuss what can currently be achieved and what might be possible as technology develops.
