Our annual IRC Research & Technology Forum takes place each year in January. Each R&T Forum provides attendees with an opportunity to receive information about current refrigeration research, regulatory updates, emerging technologies, refrigeration education, and exploration of future research in the area of industrial refrigeration. It also provides opportunities for industry professionals to meet and exchange ideas with industry experts.

All parties interested in industrial refrigeration are welcome to attend. This includes: owners, operators, contractors, designers, insurers, energy service providers, manufacturers and anyone else with an interest in the successful future of industrial refrigeration. Information on the next R&T Forum is typically posted in August on this page. Anyone having questions regarding travel arrangements or presentation topics should contact the IRC.
