Backed by the Saudi Standards, Metrology and Quality Organization (SASO), GCC Standardization Organization (GSO), and Saudi Council of Engineers (SCE), the fourth edition of the Kingdom’s largest display of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration solutions is taking place in
Riyadh for the first time.
HVAC R Expo Saudi hosts over 85 of the industry’s top regional and international brands showcasing the latest solutions the industry has to offer. The event is free to attend and will run at the
Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Centre (RICEC) until 30 January 2019.
Speaking on the Riyadh debut, Event Director Roni El Haddad said: “We are proud to officially open HVAC R Expo Saudi in the Kingdom’s capital – the event is now closer to the heart of this busy market.”
Amid reports that air conditioning solutions consume 40% of power generated in the country, Saudi Vision 2030 and its agenda toward a sustainable and efficient future is a key driver for Saudi’s HVAC R market.
Roni El Haddad added: “The HVAC R market expects to reach a value of up to $6.36 billion by 2022 as it moves to align with Vision 2030. As a result, we are delighted that HVAC R Expo Saudi has grown by 35% in floor space since the previous edition, and we expect a record 7000+ visitors to the event.”

More than just an exhibition, HVAC R Expo Saudi also provides industry professionals with invaluable learning opportunities through the form of free to attend CPD (continuing professional development) certified training sessions, sponsored by Samsung – Alessa Advanced Projects Ltd.
The training agenda has so far hosted SASO to present on ‘Energy Efficiency of Small and Large Air Conditioners’, and is still to feature representatives from GSO and SCE to speak more on industry standardization and development in light of Vision 2030. — SG
