ASHRAE 2016 Winter Conference

January 23 – 27, Orlando, Florida, USA

"The 2016 ASHRAE Winter Conference will have a fresh feel with new tracks focused on design-build practices and residential systems. We'll continue our emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability while addressing current engineering and construction practices outside of the U.S. and Canada. We're also taking one of the most attended conference program styles and making an entire track out of debates. I think we'll be offering our attendees some great programs that align well with current trends in HVAC&R engineering," Jennifer Leach, conference chair, said.
