Motivations and Objectives

Steel Constructions, whether used in the creation of architectural masterpieces, towering skyscrapers, or in the design of industrial structures, embody the perfect fusion of the intrinsic strength of steel and architectural creativity. With decades of extraordinary achievements, steel construction continues to evolve, providing ingenious solutions for contemporary challenges.

This conference aims to share and celebrate the most recent successes in the field of steel construction. Iconic projects will be presented to inspire and inform. Whether in the creation of innovative structures, the rehabilitation of existing infrastructure, or the exploration of synergies with other construction materials, the conference offers a platform to share concrete experiences and specialized expertise.

With a focus on design and execution aspects, this conference provides a comprehensive immersion into the world of steel construction. The ultimate goal is to stimulate fruitful conversations, catalyze new ideas, and foster collaboration for a future where steel construction remains at the forefront of innovation, respecting the principles of sustainable development.
