Technical Roadshow encourages knowledge sharing
BITZER Seminars planned for July.
Every two years, global refrigeration giant BITZER takes its most recent developments on the road for its Technical Roadshow; a week-long travelling tour that brings new products and new ideas to the industry through a seminar style event that includes product displays and relaxed networking. It’s free, inclusive and informative, with a focus on hot industry topics that affect all players in the refrigeration & HVAC sectors, and in particular the end users that work with these systems day to day.
BITZER’s Technical Roadshow is back this July, and in addition to regular presentations on new product developments, the 2017 event sees industry luminaries Michael Bennett, John Bowen and John McCormack join the BITZER team for what promises to be an informative, well-rounded afternoon.
With a focus on precision cooling and natural refrigerants throughout all aspects of the cold chain, this event is particularly relevant to New Zealand’s fresh produce sector. Attendees will hear about the global HFC phase down and what it means locally in addition to learning about how to save energy with highly efficient refrigeration equipment.
The event will be staged over the first week of July, with the Auckland show at the Waipuna Conference Centre on the 6th July, following the Sydney and Melbourne events earlier that week. With limited tickets for each event the industry is encouraged to act quickly to reserve their seat.
This year’s theme of ‘bridging the gap’ is all about BITZER’s responsive design and development in light of the everchanging refrigerant landscape. The central theme will see speakers address industry trends both locally and internationally, coupled with BITZER’s R&D strategies to create cooling equipment that adequately meets the requirements of new legislation and looming changes.
The highlight of BITZER’s Roadshow this year will be a Q&A style session featuring prominent industry figures Michael Bennett, General Manager of Refrigerant Reclaim Australia; John Bowen, Director of Refrigerant Recovery NZ; John McCormack, co-owner of Sythree and former Director of Chemours Chemicals and Fluoroproducts in Australia; as well as BITZER’s own Rainer Große-Kracht, Chief Technology Officer of BITZER SE.
With the addition of this new panel session, Marketing & Business Development Manager René Le Miere feels that the 2017 Technical Roadshow will be a well-rounded event.
“We’ve always aimed to make the Roadshow reflective of both BITZER and the wider industry”, says René.
“In particular, this year we’re reaching out to encourage trainees and apprentices to come along. This isn’t an elitist event – the whole idea is to bring all levels of our industry together and learn from each other. It’s an afternoon to learn something new, catch up with colleagues over a coffee, check out displays from some of our key suppliers, and with the addition of the interactive Q&A panel, get involved in the conversation.”
