A key highlight at the event was “Smart Facades Made By Geze” wherein the German firm focused on its history, leadership in building automation, smart systems and also the project references in Egypt.

"Egypt and North Africa are expected to register substantial developments at the global level which were recorded in the present year 2019 and a similar powerful speed is projected going forward in the next five years taking into account the magnitude of regional governments’ investments in infrastructure," remarked Charles Constantin, the managing director of Geze Middle East.
