The 2020 ARBS Industry Awards will be presented as a virtual gala event via web stream on Wednesday 21 October 2020.

To be hosted by master communicator Andrew Gill, the 2020 edition will recognise and honour top achievers across multiple categories including Young Achiever, Project Excellence, Product Excellence, Software/Digital Excellence and Outstanding Industry Education/Training as well as the Hall of Fame inductees.

This year marks a decade of the ARBS Industry Awards honouring and rewarding talent, originality and initiative within the HVAC&R and building services industry.

ARBS Exhibition Chairman Ian Hopkins said, “The award entries were exceptional this year and certainly challenged the judging panel. We saw some truly exciting nominations, which demonstrates our industry is in terrific shape and well positioned to deliver great people and innovation into the future.”

ARBS Exhibition Manager Sue Falcke said, “Now more than ever we need to come together to recognise and celebrate these top achievers in the HVAC&R and building services industry.”

“I have been fortunate to be involved in these awards since the beginning and I am constantly impressed by the commitment and talent within our industry. Understandably this year’s event will look different; however, we are thrilled to be able to unite to celebrate these incredibly talented individuals and organisations and invite everyone to join us in doing so,” Falcke added.

The ARBS 2020 Industry Awards will commence at 3pm AEDST on Wednesday, 21 October 2020 and can be viewed online. The ARBS 2020 Industry Awards gala is free to attend.
