NTC an annual conference where pioneering ideas, groundbreaking solutions, and global collaboration converge with practical implications for business, society, academia, and politics. The conference focuses on providing attendees with the latest trends in research and valuable solutions to the daily challenges. This conference offers a vibrant platform for networking opportunities to deepen the knowledge and relationships by bringing together leaders and experts from various industries and disciplines. NTC attempts to link the goals of sustainability with the industry market by focusing on three pillars, which are fire safety materials and methods, NIK (Not-In-Kind) cooling and air conditioning technologies, and low GWP refrigerants, in addition to the materials used in sustainable construction. Building and construction industry can also be a major beneficiary by improving the properties of materials using Nano-technology. NTC explores the ecological urbanism technologies, environmental issues, sustainable development, and more. NTC presents provocative discussions to shape a sustainable tomorrow. NTC is where the enlightened and collaborative spirit of sustainable product comes to life, bringing together hundreds of professionals across dozens of product uses and throughout the value chain—from new to seasoned.
