  • Building Automation – Addressing such topics as “Unifying a Building to Reduce Energy Consumption with BACnet,” “The Future of Building Automation- The Self Learning Edge Revolution,” and “Intelligent Buildings and Cybersecurity,” these sessions will provide the latest information on building automation’s evolving relationship to HVACR practices.

In excess of 100 presentations will be held in the Show’s New Product & Technology Theaters, featuring the latest innovations being introduced by AHR Expo exhibitors in 2017.  Attendees can participate in these free 20-minute overview sessions, and better understand the cutting-edge products and technologies being displayed on the 2017 Show floor.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in more than 50 free seminars on a range of topics presented by endorsing associations and other HVACR industry groups.  These industry expert-led one- and two-hour sessions have been designed to allow for easy integration of valuable education time into attendees’ overall Show agendas.

A Town Hall meeting, hosted by the Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA), will provide opportunity for open-forum discussion on the topic of technology integration into HVACR practices.
