April 19, 2018 — ASHRAE recently released the technical program for the 2018 ASHRAE Annual Conference being held June 23 - 27 at the Hilton Americas-Houston Hotel and the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Tex.
The five-day event includes eight conference tracks, tours, social events and a keynote message from research scientist and author, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez on “Inspiring the Next Generation.”
The technical program will provide practitioners with in-depth educational tracks to optimize the design and performance of buildings, the organizers say.
