The ARBS Exhibition which was being held in April next year has been rescheduled to 16-18 August, 2022.
The decision was made yesterday with ARBS issuing a statement: “With consideration to the ongoing implications of COVID-19, and after discussions with the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, ARBS Exhibitions have made the decision to move the event, scheduled for April 2022, to 16-18 August 2022.”
ARBS exhibition manager, Sue Falcke said the decision was made to move the event to August to ensure the health and safety of all exhibitors, staff, and attendees. ‘Given the current COVID-19 situation in Australia combined with the difficulty in predicting the outlook for early 2022, it was felt a short delay would bring about more certainty allowing ARBS to deliver on its full show format.’ Falcke said.
ARBS is Australia’s largest air conditioning, refrigeration and building services exhibition. The biennial international event hosts over 300 exhibitors, draws large crowds of over 7,000 and hosts many social and networking functions including the Industry Awards and Seminar Program.
Revised dates for the call for speakers and award nomination entries will be advised in coming weeks.
“Our ongoing priority has always been to ensure the safety of everyone at the event,” Falcke said.
“We anticipate by pushing ARBS 2022 back to August, the situation in Australia will be much improved.
“We look forward to August 2022 with increased confidence that ARBS will continue to provide a dynamic and engaging experience for the entire industry.”
