AIRAH’s conference call

A full slate of Institute events has been programmed for the coming 12 months.

AIRAH has scheduled a full calendar of conferences, forums, technical seminars, Industry Nights and other events across Australia in 2022. These occasions provide opportunities to learn about the latest developments in the industry, and build professional networks.

Commissioning mission 

Organised by AIRAH’s Commissioning Special Technical Group, the Commissioning Virtual Forum brings together leading industry experts and allows attendees to connect with peers while learning about properly functioning and performing buildings.

Refrigeration inspiration 

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, with live-streaming options for those who wish to attend remotely.

Driving value out of data 

The Big Data and Analytics Forum is an in-person and virtual event that 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.

Simulation stimulation 

Presented by AIRAH and IBPSA Australasia, this scientific conference explores simulation’s

contribution to carbon- and climate-responsive outcomes, both at building and precinct scale. The Building Simulation Conference will be held as a hybrid event, with in-person and live-streaming options available for attendees.

Attention leaders of the built environment! 

AIRAH’s flagship conference – The Future of HVAC – 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 and online.
