AIRAH has announced a full slate of events programmed for the coming 12 months. Fulfilling its remit to share best-practice HVAC&R and related knowledge and information with as wide an audience as possible, the events calendar includes conferences, forums, technical seminars, and Industry Nights across Australia in 2022. 

“AIRAH events provide tremendous opportunities to learn about the latest developments in the industry, and build professional networks,” says AIRAH CEO Tony Gleeson, M.AIRAH. “Whether they are virtual, physical or hybrid, our conferences aim to gather the industry’s best minds and practitioners to share information and raise standards.”

AIRAH’s 2022 suite of events covers a broad sweep of knowledge areas that exist within HVAC&R and building services. Highlights are the Australasian Building Simulation conference in Brisbane in July and AIRAH’s flagship event, The Future of HVAC 2022, slated for Melbourne in September.

Organised by AIRAH’s Commissioning Special Technical Group, the Commissioning Virtual Forum 2022 brings together leading industry experts, and allows attendees to connect with peers while learning about properly functioning and performing buildings. The Forum will take place virtually on March 24. 

Meanwhile, AIRAH’s annual Refrigeration Conference has a new format for 2022, with an education session for refrigeration services contractors on day one, followed by technical presentations on day two. The event will be held in person in Sydney over May 16–17, with live-streaming options for those who wish to attend remotely. 

The Big Data and Analytics Forum 2022 will be held on June 23 in Sydney. This in-person and virtual event looks at how to drive value out of data. Industry experts will share lessons learnt, and discuss
the future of big data and analytics for applications in the built environment.

Presented by AIRAH and IBPSA Australasia, the Australasian Building Simulation scientific conference explores simulation’s contribution to carbon- and climate-responsive outcomes, both at building and precinct scale. It will be held as a hybrid event, with in-person and live-streaming options available for attendees either in Brisbane over July 20–21 or online.

AIRAH’s flagship conference, The Future of HVAC 2022, brings together leaders from the built environment to discuss the impact global forces are having on the future of the HVAC industry. The event will be held in person in Melbourne on September 7–8 and online.

At the always-popular Building Physics Forum, building physics experts will explore ways to control heat, air and moisture flows across the building envelope to deliver better indoor environmental quality. AIRAH’s Building Physics Forum 2022 will be held as a hybrid event – live-streamed but also live in Sydney on October 12.

AIRAH’s Western Australia division curates the WA HVAC&R Emerging Trends Symposium. As ever, in 2022 this day of discussion will investigate emerging trends, and where the HVAC&R industry is heading. The Symposium will be held as an in‑person event on November 8 in Perth.
