For half a century, the International HVAC&R Congress and Exhibition has been organized by the Serbian HVAC&R Society, which operates within the Union of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers and Technicians of Serbia (SMEITS). The 50th event in a row will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, on December 4-6 at the Sava Center.

The program of the congress covers challenges with buildings in the conditions of pollution caused by the use of conventional sources of energy. Included are environmental protection, natural disasters and extreme weather, but also impacts of human activity on human life and health, migrations towards large cities and living conditions in them. Organizers say more than 130 companies from around the world will exhibit at the venue.

One of the most interesting sessions of the first day will be about renewable energy sources utilization for global warming mitigation, environmental protection and sustainable development. It will showcase the know-how from the Mediterranean region, Croatia, Romania, Slovenia and Serbia.
