Welcome to the 2nd Vienna Window


Due to recent events we announce our new date for the 2nd Vienna Window Convention on 19 & 20 November 2020! This year our 1.5-day conference for the window industry will be held under the motto Strategies | Sales | Innovations. With Dr. Andreas Sönnichsen we present a public health expert who will open this year’s congress on living with the corona virus & the future from a public health perspective.

Also in 2020 we will make Vienna the meeting point of the window industry. As before, the focus will be on innovators and influential personalities in the industry who drive and shape the development of the markets. We take a look at strategies that became necessary after the crisis and analyse their effects on the industry. Best cases in the areas of digitalization, sustainability and BIM are also on the programme, as well as first-hand information and personal exchange, is in focus !



After the opening by Dr. Andreas Sönnichsen (MedUni Vienna) on the effects of the current crisis, Patrick Seitz (aluplast & EPPA) will present approaches to reconcile sustainability and corporate growth in his lecture Green prospects. Helmuth Berger (Internorm) gives strategic input regarding distribution and positioning and Jens Eberhard (Oknoplast Germany) shows strategies of the price market leader to position the company successfully also in terms of distribution. With Roberto Antoniotti (Voilap Digital) we will look at digitalization in distribution. He presents new approaches to Retail 4.0 for windows and doors.



 Convention on 19. & 20. November 2020 !


Two market analyses provide additional input on strategic positioning: Christoph Blepp (S&B Strategy) presents current study results on the window industry, as well as challenges and opportunities it is facing.  The digital turnaround and the changes that come with it are the focus of attention. And as InterConnection, we will then present a contribution on the window market(s) after the Corona crisis, analysing in particular the effects on the industry.

With Patric de Hair (Plan.One), we will focus on digital cooperation with architects. Plan.One, the search and comparison portal for building products, forms an interface between the digital planning level of architecture and the manufacturers of building products. The expert Christopher Strobel (CS Consulting), who specialises in the fields of smart home and digitalization issues in building services engineering, will present smart future concepts for the industry. And Roger Wollhaupt (Jansen) will be presenting digitalization concepts with regard to Business Information Modeling (BIM) for window and facade construction in his lecture.

Key note speeches, empirical market analyses and two panel discussions on the success factors on the window market – moderated by Dipl.-Ing. Daniel Mund (GLASWELT) – and the effects of digitalization on the industry – moderated by Frank Lange (VFF) – provide impulses for interactive think tanks and strengthen communication and exchange among those present. They accentuate our event as well as the award ceremony in cooperation with bauelemente bau and an evening event on 19.11.2020.


I am happy to welcome you personally!
