ARBS 2022, Australia’s only international air conditioning, refrigeration, and building

services trade exhibition has closed after a bumper three days in Melbourne, with total visitor numbers in excess of 7,400.


Visitors explored the largest show of its kind in Australia with over 220 feature packed stands with the latest in HVAC&R and building services gear. Walking the extensive show floor visitors were able to connect with the most influential HVAC&R and building services leaders, manufacturers, and solution providers. Visitors were also able to see fantastic product demonstrations in the Exhibitor Presentation Theatre which was a hive of activity.


Alongside the exhibition the extensive Seminar Program saw a range of panels and guest presenters deliver information relevant to the industry. Attendance at the Seminar Program was impressive with many sessions at full capacity.


One of the highlights of ARBS 2022 was the Industry Awards, which honoured those who are achieving greatness in the industry, it was held at the Crown Palladium on the 17 August. The evening was hosted by Australian media personality, Andrew Daddo, and was very well received with a high demand for tickets to this gala event.


Professor Tony Arnel, ARBS Chairman said: “The 2022 exhibition has once again exceeded expectations. The sheer size and scale of ARBS has always been impressive, but it is now evident to everyone in the industry that ARBS is more than an exhibition. It’s a connector and a celebration of a sector that is mission critical to the health and wellbeing of all Australians. I thank you all for joining me at this wonderful event and we look forward to returning to Sydney in 2024.”
