NEW YORK, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ATMOsphere America, the only business conference focusing on how environmentally friendly natural refrigerants are used in refrigeration, air conditioning and heating systems, returns on June 16 and 17 for its 5th edition.
Hosted by market accelerator shecco, and taking place at the Westin Michigan Ave in Chicago, ATMOsphere America is expected to draw nearly 400 participants from over 150 companies, making the 2016 event the biggest to date. More than 30 sponsors, encompassing nearly every aspect of the cooling industry, are supporting the conference.
ATMOsphere America is scheduled this year just before two major food-industry conference taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago -- FMI Connect (June 20-23) and the Global Cold Chain Expo (June 20-22).
ATMOsphere America has a proven formula of end user & supplier panels, policy & market trends sessions, case studies, workshops and unparalleled networking opportunities. The event will once again serve as the meeting place for HVAC&R industry experts to discuss the latest natural refrigerant market trends, regulatory issues and technology developments in North America.
