With a growing line up of fantastic exhibitors and brand partners, the UK’s only national exhibition for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors will attract visitors from a wide range of sectors, including building services, central and local government, retail, leisure, hospitality, transport, manufacturing, healthcare, education, utilities and more.
2018 will also see the launch of a new sector – refrigerated and chilled food transportation.
In addition to seeing leading companies exhibiting top brand products, visitors will benefit from a number of exciting feature areas, including the new Industry Insight Series, a three-day series of live talks and discussions on future industry issues, presented by a panel of guest speakers.
BSRIA’s Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, building sustainability engineer, will present on how a building can be measured for 'wellness' and its impact on the wellness of the occupants. There are new wellbeing measurement methodologies entering the market place and it is the “buzz word” in workplace management circles.
The event will also include the series launch of the 2018 national SkillFRIDGE competition, together with working lunches for sponsors and invited guests and a three day CPD accredited seminar programme with speakers invited from UK and European Associations. In addition, the Institute of Refrigeration will hold its annual conference at the show on Thursday 25 January – tickets are available now.
Graeme Owen, marketing services manager at BSRIA said: “BSRIA is delighted to be supporting The HVAC & Refrigeration Show. We especially like the look of the show changes which should attract a wider audience and help to support best practice for a more joined up industry.
The three-day series of live debates on key issues, including ‘Smart cities – future markets’, looks particularly interesting, along with the CPD accredited programmes in two seminar theatres – the HVACR Theatre and the Training & Skills Theatre.
We are also delighted to be fielding a world-renowned expert speaker in Dr Michelle Agha-Hossein, who will consider wellbeing within a building and the domino effect of the importance of this.”
Karena Cooper, event manager for The HVAC & Refrigeration Show, said: “We are delighted that BSRIA has chosen to support The HVAC & Refrigeration Show. This is a new association for us and a very important one at that. BSRIA’s work is well known within our industry and provides an independent opinion in construction and buildings services.”
