CONTENTS From the editor Future perfect I


t’s the ACR News Awards time of year - a welcome break from the whatever awaits us at the end of the month. We’ve all been talking a lot about what is to come – and with Brexit, the future prospects is a topic that has come up ever more frequently. ‘The future’ is not just Brexit though, it’s also made up of evolving services and products, new technologies and new blood.


It was great to see the Institute dinner still growing - hopefully a sign of increased interest in the industry. We also have the newly launched World Refrigeration Day, which has the potential to be the best tool for bringing cooling to mainstream notice - not only schools and colleges, but also the parents an d other associates of those in schools an d colleges. Online and smart controls are making their way into everything from washing machines and cars to air conditioning units and chillers. Products are being driven to be ever more efficient and, given that we are a ‘service’ nation with a keen eye for good customer service, investment in support is crucial to many businesses.


Taking place on 21 March, the ACR News Awards is - and has been since its inception in the mid-nineties - all about highlighting and celebrating both the now and the future.
