Patterned after the Institute’s annual regional networking events, the AIRAH Industry Nights, the Virtual Industry Showcase is a free-to-attend event that brings together companies and people working in HVAC&R from across the trades, innovation and engineering spaces.
Similar to its debut in June, attendees will get a chance to participate in live Q&A sessions, network with industry peers, and access exclusive exhibitor offers.
This time, the Virtual Industry Showcase will be divided into two streams, each held over a six-day period (from Friday to Wednesday) in December.
How the virtual event works
Each stream will consist of an Exhibitor Showcase, followed by a live Q&A and networking session.
When the Showcase opens on Friday, registered attendees will be emailed access to the Showcase pages, where they will be able to watch the exhibitor videos and receive exclusive offers from participating companies. Attendees can explore the Virtual Industry Showcase at their own pace, and are encouraged to ask questions ahead of the Q&A sessions.
On Wednesday, the same participants will be invited to attend a live one-hour Q&A and networking session. In this session, exhibitors will answer questions and attendees will get a chance to hear the latest from the HVAC&R industry and virtually connect with peers across Australia.
Choose a stream
The Showcase for Stream 1, which has a focus on refrigeration, ventilation and other product categories, will open on Friday, November 27. The live Q&A and networking session for this stream will be held on Wednesday, December 2.
Devoted to air conditioning and controls and analytics, the Showcase for Stream 2 will open on Friday, December 4, followed by its Q&A and networking segment on Wednesday, December 2.
As the registrations to the two sessions are separate, those keen to attend both streams will need to RSVP twice.
