Set to take place from Monday 7 May – Wednesday 9 May, the 2012 Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services Exhibitions (ARBS) are already close to selling out bookings, making the 2012 exhibition 12% larger than the record-holding 2008 show.

Held in Melbourne, the biennial Australian HVAC&R tradeshow showcases the most recent and innovative energy efficient technologies from manufacturers and distributors around the globe, attracting over 8,000 industry visitors from around Australia and the world.

ARBS 2012 exhibition organiser Sue Falcke says; “With the original space booked out rapidly by both regular and new exhibitors, we’ve been fortunate to secure additional space. Demand is still strong, so we recommend booking as early as possible when the new space allocation is released on 17 October.”

ARBS will feature a series of technical seminars where HVAC&R, facilities managers and building services professionals can hear the latest on a range of issues and topics and network with their peers.

Local and international experts will speak on a range of topics such as the effects of the carbon tax on our industry and the current state of ratings systems including the introduction of the sixth NABERS star and Green Star – Performance, BIM, natural refrigerants and a range of other topics of interest. Organisers are still inviting expressions of interest from potential speakers.
