According to the organiser, ATMOsphere, Japan, a pioneering country in the natural refrigerant industry, is the perfect setting for this two-day conference. Featuring a key blend of panel discussions, case study presentations and workshops, ATMOsphere Asia 2014 – Technology and Innovation, is geared specifically towards the natural refrigerant market in Asia. Participants include leading end-users, suppliers, government representatives, associations and more from major international markets such as Japan, South East Asia, India and other Asian regions.

Change of conference dates

The organisers' main reason for shifting the dates of ATMOsphere Asia from September 2013 to 3 - 5 February 2014 is the large interest shown by both Asian and international companies. The new dates correspond with HVAC&R Japan 2014, a key industry event for the Asian market, which will take place from 28 - 31 January. This will allow key international players and other Asian suppliers and end-users to particpate in both the major trade show and ATMOsphere Asia 2014.

Accompanying the change of dates will be an extension of the early bird discount rate, as well as an extension for the submission of case studies till Sept. 30 2013.

At the same time, the conference aims to bring key international suppliers to Asia.
