ATMOsphere America to be biggest yet
Hosted by Shecco, and taking place at the Westin Michigan Ave in Chicago on June 16 and 17, ATMOsphere America is expected to draw nearly 400 participants from over 150 companies. The event has already attracted more than 30 sponsors.
ATMOsphere America is scheduled this year just before two major food-industry events taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago – FMI Connect (June 20-23) and the Global Cold Chain Expo (June 20-22).
ATMOsphere America has a proven formula of end user and supplier panels, policy and market trends sessions, case studies, workshops and networking opportunities. The event will once again serve as a meeting place for industry experts to discuss the latest “natural” refrigerant market trends, regulatory issues and technology developments in North America.
In addition to discussing the state of the Industry, regulations and standards, this year’s programme will also explore: reinventing ammonia refrigeration, increasing efficiencies in carbon dioxide refrigeration, using hydrocarbons as refrigerants, and more. In addition, the conference will include off-site end user visits and training sessions on the days before and after the event.
