Like so many others, you too may be tired of the endless virtual meetings, your home studio or staring at the same four walls each day at your office being limited to engaging with your clients and industry at large – diarise the dates to attend FRIGAIR 2022!
Since 1980, FRIGAIR has been providing the industry-preferred platform for engagement for doing business, knowledge transfer and networking opportunities. This year’s event will no doubt hold a lot of excitement and create stimulus for the entire HERVAC industries on the back of a tough period for global trade.
One of the South African Institute for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning’s (SAIRAC) premier events, the FRIGAIR expo is the largest dedicated HERVAC trade exhibition in Africa. The new dates are set for 01 – 03 June 2022 at the Gallagher Convention Centre, in Midrand.
Having been pushed back a year due to the ongoing pandemic, the industry continues to ‘green-light’ this event through the positive engagements, the regular enquires on visitation and the fast-growing exhibitor list. One particular question that keeps cropping up is if this event will be in person, and the answer is YES! Naturally, digital elements will be included, however as industry agrees, the best platform is one where face-to-face interactions can take place.
A lot of progress in techniques and technology has occurred of late, driven primarily by solutions to aspects related to indoor air quality as well as efficiency, and the heightened drive in the struggle to mitigate global warming and its effects.
It will have been four years since the last FRIGAIR took place in 2018 and all role players’ excitement is growing as enthusiasm to partake in a large-scale experience provided by such an event is longing. The HERVAC industry has always been known to produce the best outcomes through the physical interactions and networking opportunities found at FRIGAIR.

So much on offer for visitors, you can’t miss out!
Now, with less than 6 months to go to this prestigious industry-leading congregation, you have to be there! A lot has changed in four years, and this is especially true for these sectors. So much has developed in terms of technology, design methodologies, regulations, guidelines, and local impacts from international policies.
Building heath and combatting the covid pandemic has of course been top of the agenda for the last two years and along with indoor air quality will shape the way buildings and building systems function in the future. The drive for energy efficiency and shift to a digital world will also no doubt continue to play a significant role.
For the cold chain, reduction in continually reported waste figures and quality have seen a lot of attention as the entire world is wrestling in the arena of fresh produce, and we have to keep up to date in competing for our share of the ‘supply-chain pie’ at that level.
The adoption and deployment of natural refrigerants throughout the local market and their role in limiting the effects of global warming potential and ozone depleting substances will also be high on the agenda as the globe in fact scrambles to meet the targets of the Montreal Protocol and subsequent Kigali Amendment.
