Top speakers at Future:Air seminars

AUSTRALIA: Leading Australian industry bodies have attracted top global speakers to participate in a series of breakfast seminars on the technological changes facing the air conditioning industry.

The Future:Air seminars are designed to deliver information to an industry that must prepare for the arrival of systems and equipment designed for both new technologies and a new generation of refrigerants that comply with a global phase-down of high GWP HFCs under the Montreal Protocol.

Stephen Yurek, president and CEO of the USA’s Air conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) and Andrea Voigt, director general of European group EPEE will join Australia’s Greg Picker, executive director of AREMA and Refrigerants Australia amongst the expert speakers.

A partnership between the Air Conditioning and Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturing Association (AREMA) and the Air Conditioning Mechanical Contractors Association (AMCA), the Future:Air seminar series will present breakfast meetings in Brisbane, Sydney, Parramatta (NSW), Melbourne and Box Hill (VIC) from May 20-24, 2019.
