In November 2013, a conference dedicated to the Day of the Designer was held in the city of Rostov-on-Don. The Saint-Gobain divisions ISOVER and WEBER-VETONIT sponsored the event.
Of particular interest among designers and architects was the complex approach to construction, which Saint-Gobain adheres to.

The materials included in the System are ideally combined with each other, which guarantees its durability and safety.
Saint-Gobain is responsible for the entire system as a whole: from the quality of raw materials used in the production process to the finished product that goes to the consumer.
