ASHRAE Announces Technical Program for Annual Conference

The 2019 ASHRAE Annual Conference technical program will provide practitioners with topical, in-depth educational tracks to optimize the design and performance of buildings. The conference is June 22-26 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The five-day conference includes eight conference tracks, tours, social events and a keynote message from Former NASA astronaut, senior advisor for space programs for the Intrepid Museum, author of Spaceman, Mike Massimino.
