“Each year, the ASHRAE Winter Conference and AHR Expo provides built environment professionals with industry-leading events and experiences and the best resources and presenters to deliver cutting-edge knowledge to address today’s challenges,” said 2022-23 ASHRAE president Farooq Mehboob, fellow life member. “Attending the Winter Conference and AHR Expo provides a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, make new professional connections and inspire innovative thinking. We are thrilled to return to our global headquarters city and look forward to a successful event.”

The ASHRAE winter conference technical program will offer more than 80 technical sessions, within nine tracks. Professional development hours can be earned for all sessions and most online sessions upon successfully completing a short quiz.

The complete technical program will be available in the fall. Tracks include:

  • Fundamentals and applications

In addition to the technical program and AHR Expo, attendees can look forward to updates from society leaders, general and technical tours around Atlanta and social events including the welcome party at the Georgia Aquarium. Leading up to and during the conference, ASHRAE will also conduct business, committee, and technical meetings.
