From 28 to 30 May, ICC Sydney will welcome over 9000 ARBS visitors eager lap up 330 exhibitors showcasing premium HVAC and refrigeration services, in addition to advancements in building products and technologies. 

ARBS CEO Amanda Searle applauds the event as a multi-purposeful platform conducive to professional development and networking, in addition to brainstorming solutions and remedies in pursuit of a sustainable future. 

“We’re setting new standards in how the industry comes together to connect and solve critical challenges,” says Searle.

Thought-provoking and memorable initiatives

This year’s ARBS features new initiatives and seminars that speak to a plight towards the sustainable, inclusive and environmentally responsible future mentioned by Searle. 

The Women in HVAC and Refrigeration on 29 May program spotlights the integral contributions of women to the industry, alongside providing unmissable networking and personal development opportunities. A collaborative initiative by AMCA Australia, Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH) and ARBS, this program provides strategies on how to enact gender parity visions.

Guests can expect insights into engineering excellence via the ARBS Insight Tour and Leadership Forum on 30 May. This forum provides a behind-the-scenes exclusive into ICC Sydney’s plant rooms and Sydney Place’s Salesforce Tower.

In a bid to generate interest in HVAC and refrigeration trades, 100 students will have the opportunity to participate in industry-related mathematical challenges under ARBS’ Mathsgaine, also scheduled for 30 May.

ARBS’ seminar program for 2024 has seen an 18.6 percent increase in sessions from 2022 and promises coverage of a vast array of industry topics, including electrification, heat pumps, climate change and achieving net-zero targets.
