ACR Show 2016 Preview


Opening-timesUK: Seminars will be a prominent feature at the forthcoming sell-out ACR Show in Birmingham (February 16-18). We look at who you will see and what you will hear at the UK’s only dedicated event for the refrigeration, air conditioning, ventilation, heating and heat pump sectors.

The biennial ACR Show will feature over 100 companies exhibiting top brand products, offering live demonstrations and giving advice on affordable and efficient solutions.


In addition to the exhibits, the ACR Show will feature possibly the largest and most varied programme of air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump seminars ever mounted in the UK.

The ACR Show will feature three CPD-accredited seminar theatres: the Air Conditioning & Heat Pump Theatre, sponsored by GREE; the Refrigeration & Cooling Theatre, sponsored by Chemours and the Training & Careers Theatre, sponsored by Toshiba. In addition, the Institute of Refrigeration, is using the Show as the venue for its annual conference. Being held on February 18, the IoR conference will explore how energy and emission saving in component and system design are being achieved.


Training will also be a feature with the ACR Show hosting the national SkillFRIDGE competition for the first time. Six apprentices will compete in the 12 hour competition to test their skills in electrical wiring, fault finding, pipe work fabrication, joining of materials, commissioning, refrigerant charging efficient set up and recovery of refrigerant. Apart from vocational skills, the judges will be looking for ability to design, plan and effectively solve problems encountered in the test projects.

The Institute of Refrigeration will also be offering short training “taster” sessions.

According to IoR secretary Miriam Rodway it will provide visitors with an opportunity to learn something new and refresh their skills. The IoR will also be giving out certificates of continuing professional development, for those who take the optional evaluations.

Each session will last about 30 minutes and there will be membership discounts for any non-members who join on the day.

IoR members and service engineers can reserve their place in advance by contacting the Institute of Refrigeration direct. Places are strictly limited to 10 people per session. Sign up and walk-in places will be offered on the day if seats are still available.
