As anticipation builds ahead of ARBS 2020 – slated for May 19–21 in Melbourne, the organisers have revealed more about what to expect. Alongside over 250 exhibitors offering access to the latest in HVAC&R, the event will include IBTech@ARBS – a precinct within the exhibition dedicated to the latest intelligent building technologies.
“This technology will have a major impact in the coming years and is changing how buildings are constructed and managed,” says Jon Clarke, M.AIRAH, head of smart building technology delivery at Dexus.
Clarke will be one of many key figures at IBTech@ARBS.
“There is no other exhibition in Australia like this,” says Clarke. “It really is the perfect springboard for anyone in the industry who is embracing the digitisation of buildings.”
Exhibition manager Sue Falcke says ARBS is a product of its participants.
“Most of our exhibitors have been supporting ARBS since its inception in 1998, largely because they know it presents a fantastic opportunity to communicate to the industry and their customers,” she says. “Exhibitors within IBTech@ARBS embrace this mindset and as a result we are expecting to see some fantastic cutting-edge displays and presentations.”
Exhibitors at the inaugural IBTech@ARBS in 2018 commented on the success of the concept. Conserve It general manager Chirayu Shah, M.AIRAH, said: “Everyone who visited us in the IBTech precinct knew what kind of business we were in. This resulted in meaningful conversations, good connections and some really good, solid leads.”
Jim Henry, managing director of IOTechnic added: “We are in the right place, at the right event, with the right people walking around.”
