ARBS 2022, which was originally scheduled for April 2022, has now been moved to August 2022. Given the ongoing implications of COVID-19 in Australia as well as globally, ARBS Exhibitions, following discussions with the MCEC, have made the decision to hold the event from 16-18 August 2022. 

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 7000 and organises several 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 the coming weeks.

“Our ongoing priority has always been to ensure the safety of everyone at the event,” Falcke continued. “We anticipate by pushing ARBS 2022 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.”
