acr-show-thermostatUK: The Institute of Refrigeration has confirmed plans to host its 2016 Conference during the ACR Show 2016.

The IoR is one of a number of industry groups supporting the event which takes place at the NEC, Birmingham, from February 16-18.

Confirming its new location for the conference, IoR secretary, Miriam Rodway said: “This is a great opportunity for both IoR members and those who do not know the Institute of Refrigeration to explore a range of topical technical issues.”

The ACR Show’s decision to include the heat pump and heating and ventilation sectors has won the backing of the contractors’ body Building & Engineering Services. President Andy Sneyd said: “In addition to providing an important networking opportunity, the ACR Show 2016 will allow all members of the supply chain to view the latest products and to stay abreast of the latest technological innovations. The Building & Engineering Services Association is therefore delighted to pledge its support to this significant event in the industry’s calendar.”

Manufacturers’ group FETA has also voiced its support for event, particularly with regard to the new format.

FETA president, Terry Seward said: “FETA is delighted to be associated with the ACR Show, the only UK exhibition dedicated to the HVACR sector. We are sure that the Show and its format will provide essential opportunities to all that are present.”

F-gas certification company Refcom has also pledged its continued support of the Show.

“It is a key event for the industry, raising awareness and standards by bringing together all relevant parties to highlight and discuss industry and technological developments,” commented Refcom secretary Stephen Crocker.

In addition to its line-up of exhibitors showcasing the latest technologies, the ACR Show also provides the platform for an informative and topical seminar programme in three main seminar theatres – the Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Theatre; the Refrigeration and Cooling Theatre and the Training and Careers Theatre, sponsored by Toshiba Carrier.
