Nearly 1,800 people attended the ASHRAE 2016 Annual Conference, which took place in St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. on 25-29 June 2016.
Some 100 sessions with 400 speakers were offered as part of the Conference Technical Programme. Trending at the event were sessions related to the philosophy and ethics of different building industry professionals, which examined how buildings are created by “constructive confrontation,” via teams of building industry professionals - people drawn together with different education, training, method of working, communication skills and membership of professional bodies.
The Conference featured two full-day professional development seminars and eight half-day short courses from the ASHRAE Learning Institute. Popular courses were focused on variable refrigerant flow, troubleshooting humidity control and 90.1-2013 HVAC/Mechanical.
One of the seminars was the ASHRAE Fellows Debate: Productivity is the Measure of Indoor Air Quality, in which two teams debated whether productivity can be measured. A seminar on Energy Management for Multi-Building Portfolios from the Owner-Operator and the Consultant Perspectives provided insights into successful energy management through the experiences of both consultants and owner-operators.
