Networking event at CTBUH's 2013 Annual Congress to be hosted in Renzo Piano's The Shard

The CTBUH has revealed that The Shard at London Bridge will be the venue for the networking reception during the London 2013 conference, Height and Heritage: The Unique Challenges of Building Tall in Historic Cities. The 306m tower is scheduled to open only a few weeks before the conference in June 2013.
