The past few weeks we have been sharing details about the upcoming AHR Expo. It’s hard to believe but that event just got even better with the 2018 ASHRAE Winter Conference registration announcement.
ASHRAE is pleased to announce registration is now open for its 2018 Winter Conference, to be held in Chicago, Ill., Jan. 20-24, at the Palmer House Hilton. Registration is also open for the AHR Expo, Jan. 22-24 at McCormick Place, co-sponsored by ASHRAE and the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI).
The ASHRAE Winter Conference features eight conference tracks, tours, social events and a keynote message from Debbie Sterling, Founder and CEO of GoldieBlox. Attendees will examine the latest topics in the building industry, through a technical program featuring more than 200 presentations and 300 speakers.
“Engineers and designers continue to adopt design principles to reduce the ecological impact of our built environment on the world around us. It has practically become second nature,” says Michael Collarin, technical program chair of the ASHRAE Winter Conference. “This conference provides professionals with an unparalleled opportunity to focus on the design, build, control, commission, operating facilities and infrastructure resources that they need, not only to be efficient, but resilient.”
The conference includes tracks on what ASHRAE is most known for – standards, fundamentals and applications, systems and equipment. Tracks on industry trends in resiliency and modeling throughout a building’s life cycle, as well as tracks addressing specific disciplines, such as tall buildings and heat exchange equipment are also on the agenda. Technical Program tracks include Systems and Equipment; Fundamentals and Applications; Standards, Guidelines and Codes; Earth, Wind & Fire; Tall Buildings; Modeling Throughout the Building Life Cycle; and Heat Exchange Equipment.
