Mitsubishi makes a show of it

UK: Mitsubishi Electric is hosting its own one-day exhibition and seminar business event in London on May 18.

The Hatfield-based air conditioning supplier is inviting any business involved in the construction industry along with building owners, to attend its MEET 2017 event at the Lee Valley Velopark, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

“In addition to an exhibition of the latest solutions for air conditioning, and ventilation, we have an excellent line-up of speakers including Peter Bonfield, OBE chief executive of the Building Research Establishment who will talk through the experiences learned from the London Olympics,” explained Mitsubishi Electric Europe marketing executive Gemma Lakin, who is co-ordinating the event.

“There will also be talks on BREEAM, F-gas and the new generation of refrigerants, sustainability in the modern built environment, and legislation affecting buildings.”

Michael Heppell, one of the UK’s leading experts on customer service and author of How to be Brilliant, will close the event.

“Not only will visitors be able to learn things to help with their day-to-day business, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with potential customers,” adds Lakin. “We do therefore see this as a must-attend event for anyone wanting answers to how they can grow their business in the current climate.”

The event is open between 10.00 and 18.00, but attendees are invited to drop in at any time to suit, once they have registered online.
