ARBS, Australia’s largest HVAC&R and building services exhibition, has made the difficult decision to once again postpone the exhibition previously scheduled for February 2021 in Melbourne, Victoria.

Due to the unknown outcome of COVID-19 and the need to ensure the safety of all participants, the decision has been made to move ahead to the next planned exhibition in 2022.  ARBS 2022 will now be held from 27 to 29 April 2022 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

ARBS Exhibition Manager, Sue Falcke said ‘The decision to postpone ARBS 2021 was not entered into lightly and took into account the local and global concerns about COVID-19 as well as Federal and State Government advice. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event for our exhibitors, speakers, award finalists and visitors, however we must prioritise the health and safety of all attendees. We wish to thank everyone for their continued support and understanding during such uncertain times.’

ARBS will continue to build on its digital communications including the ongoing publication of the ARBS Connect newsletters and the popular online exhibitor product showcase. We will also introduce several new digital events over the coming months including the ARBS 2020 Awards ceremony – a fun and fast moving online event to celebrate achievements, people and products in the HVAC&R and Building Services industry. Further information on these events to be announced shortly.

Planning has now commenced to deliver a safe and world class event for our industry with ARBS 2022.  We look forward to welcoming you again to the biggest and best networking event on the HVAC&R and building services calendar. For further information visit
