Scanvac’s RoomVent Conference together with Ventilation Conference present:

RoomVent and Ventilation 2018 Conferences “Excellent indoor climate and high performing ventilation” 


RoomVent and Ventilation are well established conference series within the discipline of ventilation research. These conferences have mutually supported each other in the past and

this newly established joint event will provide an overview of the latest research findings on ventilation in both industrial and non-industrial premises.


The RoomVent Conference will focus on new technology and ventilations strategies for low energy, passive houses and zero emission buildings as well as energy efficient ventilation in the built environment.

The Ventilation Conference will focus on industrial types of applications. The aims of industrial ventilation are to protect health, prevent environmental pollution and to guarantee high product quality. These aims should be achieved in a highly energy efficient manner and promote sustainable development.
