ORLANDO, Fla. – With eight tracks, 100 sessions, and more than 300 speakers, the technical program at ASHRAE’s 2016 Winter Conference is bound to impress attending engineers, contractors, manufacturers, and building professionals. In addition, approximately 200 professional development hours and continuing education units (CEUs) will be offered, which may be applied toward a professional engineering license in many states.
The technical program will have a fresh feel with new tracks focused on design-build practices, cutting-edge technologies, and residential systems, said David Underwood, president of ASHRAE. “We’re taking one of the most popular conference program styles and making an entire track out of a series of debates. The program will also continue our emphasis on energy efficiency and sustainability while addressing current engineering and construction practices outside the U.S. and Canada.”
