ASHRAE Holds 2009 Winter Conference in the Windy City
October 17, 2008

Chicago, with one of the most recognizable skylines in the world, has long-standing status as a livable urban center. That the city has stood the test of time makes it the perfect backdrop for the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE) 2009 Winter Conference theme, Sustainable Urban Design: Engineering Tomorrow — Today.

With a focus that resources must be conserved and environments respected even in urban settings, the ASHRAE Conference takes place Jan. 24-28, 2009 at the Palmer House Hilton. Held in conjunction with the meeting is the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo, Jan. 26-28, 2009 at McCormick Place.

For complete meeting information and to register, visit Take advantage of the “Early Bird” rate and register by Oct. 31.

Meeting highlights include availability of more than 200 Professional Development Hour credits available through the technical program, with its theme of Sustainable Urban Design, and ASHRAE Learning Institute courses.

ASHRAE’s free public session also focuses on Sustainability in the Urban Development, sharing how the industry is building on its efforts to increase energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality of buildings by furthering the sustainability of entire communities. It is held at 3 p.m. Jan. 26th at McCormick Place.

The ASHRAE Learning Institute offers five Professional Development Seminars and 12 short courses at the Palmer House and McCormick.
