ASHRAE 2014 Annual Conference

When: June 28-July 2, 2014 - Seattle, Washington

Abundant rain and thriving evergreens keep the city of Seattle green and lush, but the city has taken the concept of “green” to a whole different level. Sustainability is promoted in all aspects of life, which makes Seattle the perfect location for ASHRAE’s 2014 Annual Conference. The Conference addresses topics such as ground source heat pumps, operations and maintenance and indoor environmental quality, as well as the second annual ASHRAE research summit. Not to mention, social events, networking opportunities and technical tours.
