Recognition of the extraordinary talent from within the HVAC&R and building services industry is getting a step closer, with ARBS 2020 today announcing the list of their Industry Awards finalists. Officially launching in 2010, this year marks a decade for ARBS 2020 Industry Awards. The awards honour and reward the talent in Australia which sustains the industry, fostering an environment where innovation and initiative can thrive.

ARBS Exhibition Manager, Sue Falcke, said the industry is constantly evolving to meet the needs of a changing landscape which is reflected in the superb line-up of individuals and organisations this year.

‘Not only do the ARBS Industry Awards culminate in a fantastic celebration, the award recipients will join a small but influential group of industry high-achievers with their accomplishments in their respective fields publicly acknowledged. We are proud to be applauding their hard work and commitment via the ARBS Industry Awards,’ said Falcke.

A panel of industry experts evaluated the nominations based on various criteria such as leadership, sustainability, performance and origination and selected the finalists. The award winners will be announced and honoured at a gala dinner to be held on Wednesday 20 May 2020 at the Crown Palladium.
