Dear Readers,

As the President of the Tiles and Bricks Europe (TBE), European association representing the interests of clay brick and roofing tile manufacturers, I am pleased to invite you to our 2017 Congress.

The event will be held on 22nd – 23rd June in Nice, France. The French Federation of Roof Tiles & Bricks (FFTB) is kindly hosting this years’ Congress in parallel to their own national meeting.

Nearly 100 executives are expected to attend the TBE Congress, where they will discover the latest developments in the industry, share expertise and network. In parallel to the TBE meetings, there will be an exciting program for the accompanying persons to discover the city of Nice.

The Congress will start on Thursday 22 June with the TBE Masonry Product Group. The Joint Environmental and Technical Working Group in the afternoon offers all TBE members an opportunity to have a comprehensive overview of the activities undertaken during the year. The Roof Tiles Product Group and the LIFE HEROTile workshop on the main benefits of ventilated roofs will take place later in the afternoon. A cocktail and gala dinner will round out the first day of the Congress.

The Executive Committee and the General Assembly will take place on the morning of Friday (June 23), followed by presentations by sponsors and a common lunch marking the end of the Congress.
