This week-long trav­el­ling tour brings new prod­ucts and new ideas to the in­dus­try through a sem­i­narstyle event in­clud­ing prod­uct dis­plays and re­laxed net­work­ing. It’s free, in­clu­sive and in­for­ma­tive, with a fo­cus on hot in­dus­try topics that af­fect all play

The Orchardist - - What’s New -

BITZER’s Tech­ni­cal Roadshow is back this July. As well as 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 phase­down and what it means lo­cally, as well as learn­ing about how to save en­ergy with highly ef­fi­cient re­frig­er­a­tion equip­ment.

The event will be held in the first week of July, with the Auck­land show at the Waipuna Con­fer­ence Cen­tre on July 6, fol­low­ing the Sydney and Mel­bourne events. With lim­ited tick­ets for each event the in­dus­try is en­cour­aged to act quickly to re­serve seats.

This year’s theme of ‘bridg­ing the gap’ is all about BITZER’s re­spon­sive de­sign and de­vel­op­ment in light of the ever-chang­ing re­frig­er­ant land­scape. Speak­ers will ad­dress in­dus­try trends lo­cally and in­ter­na­tion­ally, along with BITZER’s re­search and de­vel­op­ment 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.

Mar­ket­ing and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment man­ager René Le Miere feels the ad­di­tion of this new panel ses­sion will make the 2017 Tech­ni­cal Roadshow a well-rounded event.

“We’ve al­ways aimed to make the Roadshow re­flec­tive of both BITZER and the wider in­dus­try.

“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.”
