ARBS 2016, Australia’s only international air conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, which closed in Melbourne last Thursday, has broken previous attendance records.

And the number of exhibitors also reached a new high of 323 – up from 274 in 2014.

The three day show attracted 8,702 visitors – a total overall increase of 11.83 percent from 2014. 

Running alongside the exhibition was the highly anticipated seminar program, which saw a range of highly anticipated panels and guest speakers deliver information relevant to the industry. Attendance at the seminars was impressive with some at full capacity.

The ARBS 2016 Industry Awards, which honoured those who are achieving greatness in our industry, was held at the Crown Palladium last Wednesday.

Hosted by Australian actor Shane Jacobson and the awards night proved a popular event with high demand for tickets.
