Exhibition space for ARBS 2008 has almost sold out, with less than five per cent of space remaining. The exhibition – which is being held at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 21-23 April – will host around 230 manufacturers and suppliers of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration and building services products.

Reflecting on its 10-year history, exhibitor Andrew Leach, National Sales and Marketing Manager, Actrol, said his company’s presence at each exhibition over the last decade has grown, and today Actrol uses ARBS as a major promotional tool.

ARBS is the biggest forum where our current and potential customers assemble at one time. It really is the who’s who of the Australian market. As a leading wholesaler and key supplier, Actrol wants to be a big part of this gathering.

Over the years ABRS has seen the exhibition grow considerably. The input from Australian companies has been incredible, and the company is now seeing more new international companies using this platform to introduce and promote their products and services.

Exhibition manager Sue Falcke said ARBS has grown by nearly 50 per cent since it was first staged in Sydney in 1998. She also added, ARBS has become a Mecca for up to 8000 trade visitors. It is a unique forum where people come to get the latest information through the exhibition, our outstanding keynote speakers and seminar series.

Andrew Leach encouraged visitors to pre-register online to avoid queues on the day, and to schedule enough time to make their way around the entire exhibition. He says, Visitors should allow plenty of time to make the most of their stay at ARBS, as there is so much to take in. Do not be afraid to step into a stand and take a good look around and ask plenty of questions. This is the perfect forum to get the latest information.
