I first heard the lyric, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans,” while spinning the “Double Fantasy” album I had bought my babysitting earnings. (My musical tastes have nearly always looked back in time, so it should come as no surprise I was a huge Beatles fan as a kid.) While I know now that the line actually should be attributed to Allen Saunders, I imagine that John Lennon, like me, appreciated the prescient advice.

And my, did that advice apply to how the global pandemic has changed things. Just a year ago, we announced our inaugural Process Heating & Cooling Show, which had been planned for June 2021. As you likely already know, due to pandemic-related restrictions, our inaugural show will now be held June 15-16, 2022, still in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Ill.

The Process Heating & Cooling Show — the only tradeshow to focus specifically on thermal processing in industrial process applications — will bring together manufacturers of industrial equipment for process cooling and heating with engineering professionals from the process industries.

Though our timeline has changed, we continue to work with the events team from BNP Media to finalize the show lineup, including the exhibition, on-site educational program, preshow events and more. I'd like you to invite you to consider speaking!

Share technical insights with our exclusive audience of manufacturing engineers who buy and specify process equipment to cool, chill or freeze product, measure, monitor or control temperature or cool equipment, as well as those who use heat processing equipment, components, materials and supplies as well as engineering professionals. Our educational sessions will bring together industrial manufacturing and engineering professionals to learn, connect, share and explore all things related to the process heating and cooling industries.

Possible technical session topics include:

  • Refrigeration technologies such as low charge ammonia refrigeration system design and variable-speed compressors.
  • Water treatment for microbiological control and equipment longevity.
  • Industrial Internet of Things and how remote process control, monitoring and management are changing thermal processes.
  • Identifying the root causes of system failures.
  • Managing thermal processes to minimize energy costs.
  • Best practices and application optimization.
  • Improving energy efficiency via conservation and process modifications.

You can get the full details about our call for papers under Conference on our website, www.heatingcoolingshow.com. Or, if you want to talk out your idea first, feel free to give me a call at 262-564-0074. I will be working with our educational advisory board to develop our conference program. Remember to submit your presentation proposal by July 31!
