Bilingual conference

program leaflet

Dear friends and partners all over the world,

we cordially invite all colleagues from Germany and abroad to take part at the International BUILDAIR Symposium on June 2nd and 3rd, 2023 in Hanover. The focus for 2023 will be on the following topics:

  • EN ISO 9972 – hands-on experience and national annexes
  • Airtightness concepts 
  • Thermography
  • Ventilation systems
  • Product development of airtightness products and measuring devices

The detailed lecture program can be found under the menu item Program.

By the way, the symposium will be 30 years old in 2023 - so we are particularly looking forward to welcoming you in Hanover!

Until then, all the best to you, have a successful time and stay healthy!


Retrospection to the 2021 symposium

Around 135 colleagues we welcomed from Austria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Latvia, Luxembourg, Norway, Serbia, Switzerland and the USA to the 12th International BUILDAIR Symposium - thank you all very much for your participation. We appreciate that you stayed the two days from morning to late afternoon and actively participated with questions and comments about the presentations.

During his opening speech, Wilfried Walther asked how many kilometers you did not cover this time between your hometown and Hanover in view of the online event. In a few minutes, we received 46 responses via chat, which added up to a whopping 48,212 kilometers. Extrapolated to all participants, we have saved more than 140,000 kilometers - an impressive number!


Thanks a lot to the sponsors
