Australia’s largest air conditioning show


Next year’s Air Conditioning, Refrigeration and Building Services (ARBS) Exhibition in Melbourne is shaping up to be the biggest yet.

The biennial Australian HVAC&R tradeshow showcases all the latest in energy efficient technologies from manufacturers and distributors around the globe.

The 2012 exhibition is already 12 per cent larger than the previous biggest show (2008 in Melbourne).

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

To be held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre from May 7-9, the ARBS Exhibition and seminar program will attract more than 8000 industry visitors from around Australia and the world.

A technical seminar series also runs alongside the exhibition 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. The three-day series for ARBS 2012 is currently being finalised, and organisers are still inviting expressions of interest from potential speakers.
