ARBS 2020 is a key industry event for HVAC&R and building service professionals. Alongside over 250 exhibitors offering unrivalled access to the latest in HVAC&R, the event is set to inspire with IBTech@ARBS – a precinct within the exhibition dedicated to the very latest intelligent building technologies.

Innovation is driving the development of new products and solutions for digitised buildings and today we are witnessing key systems with greater integration and connectivity. According to Jon Clarke, Head of Smart Building Technology Delivery at Dexus, ‘This technology will have a major impact in the coming years and is changing how buildings are constructed and managed.’

However, in such an emerging environment Clarke cites collaboration as being critical to the success and progress within the sector, which is why you’ll see him and many other key figures at IBTech@ARBS. He says, ’There is no other exhibition in Australia like this, it really is the perfect spring-board for anyone in the industry who is embracing the digitisation of buildings.’

Exhibition Manager, Sue Falcke, says ARBS is a product of its participants. ‘Most of our exhibitors have been supporting ARBS since its inception in 1998, largely because they know ARBS presents a fantastic opportunity to communicate to the industry and their customers. Exhibitors within IBTech@ARBS embrace this mindset and as a result we are expecting to see some fantastic cutting-edge displays and presentations.’

Exhibitors at the inaugural IBTech@ARBS in 2018 also commented on the success of the concept. Chirayu Shah, General Manager, Conserve It said, ‘Everyone who visited us in the IBTech precinct knew what kind of business we were in. This resulted in meaningful conversations, good connections and some really good, solid leads.’ Jim Henry, Managing Director of IOTechnic (2018) added, ‘We are in the right place, at the right event, with the right people walking around.’

For exhibitors who may wish to participate, there remains a limited quantity of exhibition stands available within the IBTech@ARBS precinct, don’t miss out on being part of Australia’s finest HVAC&R and building services exhibition. For further information visit
