Making Industry Connections at the 54th HRAI AGM & Conference

It’s time to rebuild networks and uncover business opportunities at the 54th HRAI Annual General Meeting & Conference. This September, HVACR contractors are invited to shake hands with industry leaders, suppliers, and decision-makers during a three-day event in the heart of Canada’s capital.

“It’s about time we brought the industry together in person again,” says Sandy Macleod, HRAI president and CEO. “If you’re a contractor looking to get your name in front of potential business partners, learn what’s coming for our industry, and have some fun in the process, this is the place to be.”

The event is being held September 18-20, 2022, at the Westin Ottawa Hotel. Here, HRAI will host a series of panels, presentations, and networking events designed to reconnect and realign the HVACR industry. Highlights of the agenda include an interactive, two-part session, HVACR Climate Change Story: Technology, Transition, and Talent, as well as technology and refrigerant panels, an IAQ forum, and a visit to Queen's Park, where attendees will sit in on the Parliament's Question Period.

An event to remember

Aside from catching up on HVACR industry news and issues, attendees and their companions will enjoy a host of networking activities, including:

  • Kick-off social at the Westin’s viewtiful Twenty-Two Facility
  • Gala dinner at the Parliament Banquet Facility
  • Rideau Canal and Ottawa River boat trip
  • Ottawa brewery, museum, and food market tours. 
  • “Thirsty Pedaler” Coffee Crawl
  • City-wide electric/regular bike excursions
  • Historic walking tours
  • A trip to the Aerial Park and Mountain Coaster
  • CanmetENERGY Facility tour

“The big focus of this year’s show is getting the industry back together after years of virtual meetings and events,” says MacLeod. “We want to make that reunion special by planning a variety of ways to enjoy Ottawa and reconnect with peers.”
