ASHRAE Shares Trade Show Tips
ASHRAE participated in the United States Green Building Council’s (USBGC) Greenbuild International Expo, Nov. 20 – 21, 2013. ASHRAE representatives were on hand to answer questions and offer resources and guidance to professionals in the green building industry.
Every year, ASHRAE participates in a number of similar tradeshows geared toward creating more sustainable buildings. These shows give the Society opportunities to reach professionals in the building industry who might not necessarily be engineers but are just as vitally important in maintaining a green building, such as building owners, architects, facility managers and even students and teachers.
Of course, ASHRAE exhibits at the expos for which it serves as cosponsor: AHR Expo and AHR Expo Mexico, Sept. 23 – 25, in Mexico City.
In 2014, ASHRAE is exhibiting at several other shows and events.
