With the HVACR industry undergoing its biggest transformation in decades, the theme for CCN Live 2020 is Game Changers.

We are entering a whole new world where technicians will routinely be working with flammable refrigerants. This is a game-changer – it means new skills for technicians, new safety standards to work with flammable refrigerants, new installation methods, new chemical classifications, and the list goes on.

At CCN L!VE 2020 we talk to the experts who are laying the groundwork for this new world. We talk to regulatory authorities that are developing a regulatory framework for flammable gases, senior industry figures that are collaborating with industry bodies internationally on a number of initiatives (to be announced at CCN L!VE) and we debate a range of issues still in need of solutions.

During the second half of the online event we will be celebrating the achievements of our industry professionals as we recognise 8 outstanding categories, their finalists and winners.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in. If you missed out you can view the live stream here
