REGISTRATION is now open online for the biennial international Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services (ARBS 2010) exhibition, which will welcome visitors between 12-14 April at the Sydney Exhibition and Convention Centre, Darling Harbour.

The event caters to professionals and trade visitors who are involved in the design and construction of sustainable, energy efficient commercial, residential and multi- purpose buildings and the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of heating, ventilation, air conditioning (HVAC) and refrigeration products and services worldwide.

The exhibition will have a strong focus on key issues facing the industry, including climate change adaptation, energy efficiency, residential and commercial building regulations and standards and new government legislation.

This year, in addition to around 250 national and international exhibitors demonstrating the latest products and services, ARBS will feature the largest ever line-up of international speakers and local specialists for a three-day comprehensive seminar program.

The ARBS seminar program, which is being held alongside the exhibition, provides visitors with the opportunity to undertake low-cost intensive professional development and visit exhibitors — all under the one roof.

Entry to the exhibition for trade visitors is free. An entry fee will be required for most seminars. A full list of exhibitors and seminars can be found on the website.
