Alongside the commercial exhibition, the Trade Fair, organised by IFEMA and held from the 26 February to the 1 March 2019 -Tuesday to Friday- at Feria de Madrid, will provide added value for visitors and exhibitors, with a fully up-to-date programme, comprised of a block of free presentations, as well as master sessions focusing on some of the main issues of the moment.
This year there are four general themes for the presentations, regulations, with special focus on Safety Regulations for Cooling Installations; the Technical Building Code, and the European Directives on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. A second section focuses on energy efficiency and sustainability, with presentations on cases of successful installations; nearly-zero energy buildings and applications based on renewable energy.
A third section will focus on the technical evolution in HVAC and refrigeration, and it will discuss such issues as IoT and industry 4.0; interior air quality; combined HVAC and refrigeration installations; refrigeration for high-power industrial applications, and coolants. In addition, building management systems (BMS) will be the focus of another of the conference blocks.
The HVAC&R 2019 activities are complemented by the Innovation Gallery which, as every year, will show the main novelties and industry R D i. The trade fair will also have a special section dedicated to promoting good practises in the installation, in the Workshops on Techniques Applied to HVAC and the Refrigeration Workshop.
