ISHRAE Gears up for 19th Edition of ACREX India in February 2018
After the resounding success of ACREX India 2017 organized by the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ISHRAE), the Society is gearing up for the 19th edition of the exhibition that is slated to happen from February 22 to 24, 2018 at BIEC, Bangalore. Last year, people from across the globe attended the symposia and witnessed one of the largest displays of HVAC products offered by national and international exhibitors. This edition of ACREX India promises to venture into exciting themes like sustainability, green buildings, eco-friendly innovations and carbon neutrality while welcoming more than 600 exhibitors and participation from major global players across 30 countries. One of the highlights of the exhibition this year will be ISHRAE’s collaboration with United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) to discuss the technological developments in zero-ODS and low-GWP RAC technologies as well as the regulatory and policy measures needed to scale up their adoption. UNEP will be hosting an exclusive ‘Ozone Pavilion’ as a platform for organizations to showcase their climate friendly technologies and products.
Sharing his views, D. Nirmal Ram Chairman – ACREX India 2018 and ISHRAE Presidential Member, said: “ISHRAE is committed to address contemporary issues and deliver innovative solutions through ACREX India every year, and this year we are excited about the unique product offerings that we will be introducing. The 2018 edition
of ACREX will be all the more memorable because of ISHRAE’s collaboration with UNEP, one of the leading organizations globally for environmental activities. ACREX India is a flagship event of ISHRAE and has always played an essential role in bringing the industry together while working closely with key brands and partners. We at ACREX believe in organic development and sustainable living which runs parallel with the world we live in and this year, we will continue to strengthen our mission.”
“UN Environment is pleased to co-organize the Ozone to Climate Technology Roadshow and Industry Dialogue at ACREX India 2018. This is the result of a decade-long successful partnership between ASHRAE and UN Environment”, said Shamila Nair-Bedouelle, Head of OzonAction – Montreal Protocol. “The joint work plan for 2017-2018
of our two organizations is structured around the theme ‘Working beyond High-GWP Refrigerants’ to reflect international movement to reduce dependency on high-GWP technologies especially in light of the adoption of the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol. Cooperation with ISHRAE is an example of how the ASHRAE-UN Environment cooperation is shaping to actively engage with regional and national associations, ensuring the global messages and programs respond to the specific needs of developing economies” she added. “We’re pleased to partner with ACREX India again this year. This partnership is an important part of AHRI’s continued commitment
to supporting the HVACR and water heating industry around the globe. As we work toward standards harmonization and certification as a path to regulatory compliance, ACREX is a critical partner that attracts thousands of industry leaders each year” said Stephen Yurek, President and CEO, AHRI.
