ABOUT CPI INDUSTRY EVENTS
CPI Industry is a publishing house, which started producing events as an extension of its communications drive in the HVACR industry through its magazine (Climate Control Middle East) and directories.
While the magazine largely focuses on core HVACR aspects, the events probe the core and all allied areas, be they power security (district cooling and cogeneration), food security (refrigeration), food safety & quality assurance (again, refrigeration) and air quality.
CPI Industry started conducting events in May 2007, starting with the unique DC Dialogue, a technically intensive, roundtable-format discussion on the district cooling industry. Since then, CPI Industry has established a portfolio of events, all with the singular purpose of information exchange and raising the bar on technology and business solutions in the region.
In its events, it has attracted participation from such bodies as:
- World Food Programme
- Montreal Protocol (UNEP)
- Government of Dubai (Dubai Municipality)
- Kuwait National Ozone Committee (Environmental Public Authority, Kuwait)
- Ministry of Environment, Lebanon
- Government of Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority)
- US Department of State
- International Institute of Refrigeration
- Interpol (and more...)
There is a strong follow-up mechanism in the case of all the events, with the generation of post-event reports, and also text and video coverage on CPI Industry's online platforms. In 2013, there will be a ramp-up on this, in the form of a State-of-the-Industry Report, which will be a compendium of all the events in 2013, plus statistical data and analysis. This will be circulated to all government ministries in the region that have an interest in the areas of discussion.
