Celebrating its 50th Anniversary, the Council on Tall Building and Urban Habitat (“CTBUH”) hosted its 10th World Congress under the theme “50 Forward | 50 Back” in Chicago last week, and WSP is proud to be a silver sponsor of this prestigious industry event. 

Vincent Tse, Managing Director, MEP Property and Buildings, Asia, who also sits in the Board of Trustees of CTBUH, was joined by some 1,500 delegates and renowned industry experts from over 50 countries around the world in this four-day conference, in which they explored the most significant advancements in tall buildings and cities from the past 50 years, whilst inquiring into the future of our cities 50 years from now.

During the event, Vincent caught up with old friends and met new faces from the world’s leading architecture, engineering and consulting sectors, as well as owners, developers and VIPs.
