Nominations have opened for the ARBS 2022 Industry Awards which continue to recognise and reward excellence and outstanding contributions within Australia’s HVAC, refrigeration and building services industry. The awards form part of ARBS 2022, Australia’s only air conditioning, refrigeration and building services trade exhibition, and encompass a range of categories including:

  • ARBS Young Achiever Award 2022
  • ARBS Product Excellence (HVAC) Award 2022
  • ARBS Product Excellence (Refrigeration) Award 2022
  • ARBS Software/Digital Excellence Award 2022
  • ARBS Project Excellence Award 2022
  • ARBS Outstanding Industry Education/Training Award 2022
  • ARBS Industry Hall of Fame

For over a decade the ARBS Industry Awards have attracted nominees from across the industry, and are endorsed and supported by the major industry associations, the Australian Institute of Refrigeration, Air Conditioning and Heating (AIRAH); the Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors Association (AMCA); the Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Equipment Manufacturers Association (AREMA); the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE ANZ); the Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Contractors Association (RACCA); and the Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Wholesalers Association (ARWA).

‘The ARBS Industry Awards confer one of the industry’s most prestigious accolades to individuals and organisations, leaders and rising stars alike, that are striving for excellence within our industry,’ says Sue Falcke, ARBS Events Organiser.

The ARBS Hall of Fame, a popular category celebrating industry leaders by recognising long-standing service, will once again be accepting nominations from ARBS member associations only, and will continue the tradition of awarding an individual’s contribution and commitment to furthering their association activities and overall industry accomplishments.

A panel of industry experts with extensive knowledge and expertise in the ARBS sector will evaluate nominations based on various criteria such as leadership, sustainability, performance and innovation. Award winners will be announced and honoured at a gala dinner to be held during the ARBS 2022 exhibition, from 16-18 August 2022 at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Further details and full category and criteria requirements for entry are available on the ARBS 2022 website,
