Automotive leg of future:gas 2023 approaching fast!

More automotive industry bodies have pledged their support for the 2023 future:gas refrigerant seminar roadshow, with MTA SA/NT, MTA WA and VACC joining the AAAA, TaT, SAE-A and VASA alongside Refrigerants Australia, Refrigerant Reclaim Australia and the Australian Refrigeration Council in helping organise, fund and promote this important industry-led education initiative.

Corporate sponsorship from Opteon, Alcius, NAPA Auto Parts and Honeywell have subsidised tickets to future:gas seminars to an affordable $20 per participant, which includes complimentary food and drinks for attendees during the networking and trade show parts of the evening.

In addition, Cool-Safe is the drinks sponsor for New Zealand events, which will be a hybrid format aimed at both automotive and mobile HVAC/R sectors for what promises to be a refreshing and sociable experience combining education and networking.

Eight of the HVAC industry’s top experts – three of whom are VASA directors – will deliver this year’s future:gas refrigerant seminar series, which for the automotive sector kicks off in late July aimed at businesses and technicians in the automotive air-conditioning business.

The impressive speaker line-up comprises Refrigerant Reclaim Australia general manager Kylie Farrelley, VASA director and former president Ian Stangroome, Sythree principal and director John McCormack (representing Chemours in Australia), Honeywell representative in Australia Eric Yang, VASA VP and Rowe Auto Electrical/Jimboomba Batteries director Mark Rowe, VASA president and SuperCool Group training division manager Brett Meads, Refrigerants Australia executive director Greg Picker and A-Gas New Zealand country manager Mitch Williamson.

A separate tour aimed at the stationary sector and facilitated by VASA is currently in progress, beginning in Vanuatu on May 11 and ending in Lae, PNG, on July 12.

Heavily subsidised by corporate and industry support, tickets to future:gas seminars are just $20 per participant.
