Agenda for Next E360 Forum Is Finalized
Fresh off the heels of the success of our first E360 Forum, we’re excited to announce that our next one will be held on February 18 at the Embassy Suites Anaheim — South in Anaheim, California. The free daylong event will take place one day prior to the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) show starting on February 19, and will give many NAFEM attendees an opportunity to contribute to these important E360 conversations.
For the upcoming event, we’ll expand upon the topics we addrssed in November, focusing on both the current and future market and regulatory challenges facing the foodservice and supermarket segments, as well as exploring emerging technologies. Once again we’ve packed the agenda with refrigeration industry experts, starting with two very timely keynote addresses:
- Global Trends Affecting the Foodservice Industry Today & Tomorrow, by Doug Fryett, president, Fryett Consulting Group. An expert in domestic and global foodservice markets, Doug will explain how the foodservice industry is being driven by a combination of dynamic market trends.
- Refrigerant & Energy Regulations Update, by Dr. Rajan Rajendran, vice president, system innovation and sustainability, Emerson Climate Technologies. Our renowned expert on refrigerants will provide the latest update on the ever-changing regulatory landscape, from the EPA’s rule on refrigerants to the DOE’s energy reduction mandates for 2017.
And to align with your particular areas of interest, we have prepared two separate tracks of afternoon breakout sessions: Food Retail and Foodservice. To give you a better idea of what to expect, here’s a preview of a session from each track.
- How to Improve Energy Efficiency & Reduce Maintenance (Track one: Food Retail) — Energy Management Systems (EMS) in supermarket refrigeration equipment have changed drastically in recent years. This session will demonstrate how these technologies can be used to lower energy and maintenance costs, and drive compliance with corporate sustainability and food safety initiatives.
- New Equipment Technologies That Are Reducing Operating Costs (Track two: Foodservice) —
Tightening DOE regulations and increasing environmental concerns over refrigerant leakage have given rise to multiplex refrigeration system architecture, which move the condensing unit outside of the conditioned space. Learn how multiplex refrigeration offers energy savings throughout the system’s life cycle.
Immediately following the final breakout sessions, the day will conclude with a networking reception from 4–6 p.m. Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and drinks while you visit with the event’s presenters and network with your peers.
